MOVIESSMOKING IN MOVIES
Smoking in movies continues to influence youth to become addicted to one of the most deadly products legally available for consumption. A study released in the journal Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine shows a direct link between viewing smoking in movies and established adolescent smoking. According to the study, youth that are exposed to movies smoking double their risk of becoming established smokers, who are at high risk to suffer the consequences of adult tobacco addiction.
Nearly five-thousand U.S. adolescents aged 10 to 14 years were followed over a period of two years to determine their exposure to movie smoking and whether they were considered “established smokers,” which researchers defined as the adolescent having smoked more than 100 cigarettes in their short lifetime. At the beginning of the study, 5,637 (90 percent) of the teens had never smoked, while 33 (0.5 percent) had smoked more than 100 cigarettes. By the two-year follow-up survey, 125 of the participants had become established smokers. Adolescents who were below the midpoint of movie smoking exposure were less likely than teens who were above the midpoint to have smoked more than 100 cigarettes.
VIOLENCE IN MOVIES

The non-aggressive teenagers who wereexposed to movies violence had thesame reduced frontal lobe activityas those teenagers who hadbehavioral problems. The teenagersthat were not exposed to moviesviolence had more activity in thefrontal lobe, meaning that they hadbetter self-control and higherattention spans.

The emphasis that movies puts on bodyimage is affecting teenagers in a negative way by makingthem feel insecure about their own bodies and givingthem false images of unrealistic body types thatteenagers assume they must achieve in order to beaccepted by society.
