Hollywood Shows Less Smoking in Movies than Five Years ago


Hollywood movies are far less likely to feature characters lighting up than just five years ago, suggests an analysis published last week by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Smoking in movies rated G, PG and PG-13 plummeted 71.6 percent between 2005 and 2010, from 2,093 incidents in 2005 to 595 last year. In films rated G or PG, incidents of tobacco use declined 93.6 percent, from 472 to 30.
