Ban slashes awareness of ciggies; STUDY.

THE removal of in-store tobacco advertising has been successful in reducing the awareness of smoking among young people, a study has found.

Ireland was the first country in the EU to introduce this legislation in July 2009.

The study, carried out by the University of Nottingham, found that the recall of tobacco products among young people dropped from more than 80% before the measure, to 22% afterwards.

However, the report, funded by the Office of Tobacco Control, the Irish Cancer Society and Cancer Research UK, shows that the removal of point of sale tobacco promotional displays had no statistically significant short term impact on cigarette pack sales.
