Teenagers who have seen people smoking on TV are more likely to start smoking according to a new US Study. I think I have to agree with that I have seen many films that have been rated 12A where you can see people smoking and this could start making younger generation think it is normal to start smoking or that it’s in trend.
The study also said that 33 to 49 percent of young people are more likely to smoke in the next two years. Remember that this study is only in America after asking 500 youngsters, and the further on the study has stated that removing smoking scenes from PG-13 movies would have high decrease on the number of children talking about smoking.
I don’t see any point of putting smoking scenes in movies it doesn’t make the film any better.
