UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The FDA estimates that 1 in 13 people under the age of 17 dies from smoking – related illnesses – about 5.6 million children worldwide each year.
Along with quitting methods, smoking prevention efforts are needed among young people . Every teenager who decides that smoking is not for him is important.
In addition to disseminating preventive information about the dangers of smoking, specialists are trying other ways to reduce the attractiveness of cigarettes.
Researchers from the University of Stirling (USA) have suggested that cigarettes themselves, and most of them, be covered with warning labels.
Preliminary studies have shown that this really works. Teenagers are scared away and repelled by cigarette labels. This is especially important for novice smokers who do not buy cigarettes in packs, but usually get them from the hands of older and more experienced friends.
