Tobacco display bans may lower smoking rates: Australia study

Sydney: Smoking rates have dropped among young Australians in recent years, and research released on Tuesday suggests that banning tobacco displays from shops is a factor.

The latest study, funded by the Cancer Institute of New South Wales, looked at the medium-term impact of retailers keeping tobacco products out of sight of people aged between 12 and 24 in two states.

“Our findings suggest an immediate impact of display bans on youth’s exposure to tobacco pack displays, and likely impacts on smoking-related outcomes,” it says.

“These results suggest that removing tobacco displays from retail environments can positively contribute to the denormalisation of smoking among youth.”
