Smoking Prevalence in Top Movies Hits Record Low!

USA Today Reports: Last year, less than half of the 145 hit movies had smoking in them, according to a recent study. That is a new record low for the last two decades! In movies aimed at children, 61% of them had no smoking at all.

However, there is still smoking in 54% of movies rated PG-13, which, researchers say, is concerning because that’s where teens view it the most.

Check out the full article about the new study on USA Today’s Web site.
