ABSTRACT
The author discusses a study which demonstrates that movie smoking exposure before adolescence has as much influence on smoking initiation as exposure closer to the time smoking begins. The author found that about 60% of these smoking occurrences were from PG-13 movies, 21% from R movies, and 19% from G/PG movies. The author asserted that the likelihood of beginning to smoke was significantly correlated with the degree of movie smoking exposure, even after adjustments.
