Teenagers put-off smoking by standardized tobacco packaging
(Medical Xpress)—A new survey adds further weight to the growing evidence that standardized tobacco packaging could help discourage teenagers from smoking.

The survey, carried out by the British Heart Foundation (BHF), asked 2,500 13- to 18-year-olds from the UK and Australia about their attitudes to tobacco packaging. Only around a third (36 per cent) of UK teenagers surveyed were put-off smoking by current packaging compared to nearly half (48 per cent) of teens in Australia, where standardized packaging is already in place.

Worryingly, 10 per cent of teenagers in the UK make the incorrect assumption that certain cigarette brands are healthier than others - twice as many as Australian teens (5 per cent).
