Preventing smoking: evaluating the potential effectiveness of cigarette warnings.
We examined the potential effectiveness of U.S. government cigarette warnings in preventing adolescent smoking.
In Study 1, 112 seventh graders rated the effectiveness of four currently required warnings and four possible other warnings and answered questions about the meaning of certain words in the warnings.
In Study 2, 115 seventh graders attempted to recall the four current warnings; in Study 3, 103 eighth and ninth graders read all eight warnings one day and tried to recall them the next day.
In Study 4, 25 seventh graders participated in a focus session in which they discussed the effectiveness of each of the eight warnings.
