Tobacco shops pose teen smoke risk
London: Teens are more likely to start smoking if they live in areas with large numbers of shops that sell tobacco products, a new study has found.

Adolescents with the most tobacco outlets in their neighbourhood are almost 50 per cent more likely to smoke than those with no outlets nearby, researchers from the University of Edinburgh have found.

The study also found that teenagers from areas with the highest density of retailers are 53 per cent more likely to try smoking at least once.

Researchers argued that anti-smoking strategies among teenagers should include reducing the overall density of tobacco retailers.

Tobacco control policies often prioritize the reduction of outlets in neighbourhoods near schools.
