Parents Can Sway Teens on Smoking

Defying the stereotype of the defiant teen-ager, new research suggests teens are much less likely to smoke if they think their parents disapprove of the habit.

Parental disapproval works even if the parents are smokers, and it can also blunt the effect of peer pressure, shown previously to be a strong influence on whether teens take up smoking, the study found.

On topic?

Although I agree that curbing teen-age smoking is an important issue, I fail to see the connection between teenage smoking prevention and high speed internet access. Please don't take this as a flame, but there is a time and a place for everything, and one of the things I have always enjoyed about DSLReports is that it is refreshingly devoid of political agendas that do not directly impact high speed internet access specifically, or at least personal/business computing in general.

Sincerely,

Higlac

This news item was posted in the Team Discovery forum, which is dedicated to using distributed computing power to find a cure for cancer, hence why this appears on this site.

I understand now. The highlight on the main page wasn't clear about which forum this news had been posted to, and I found the headline on the main page of the DSLReports site. I was under the impression that someone had submitted this article as news for the masses, and not in the context of the Team Discovery forum. My apologies.
