(Caracas, November 25, News24) – Photos of people who feel disgusted or want to smoker can cause smokers to get rid of this harm to the health, published this week in the Journal of Consumer Affairs.
At the Western Ontario (Canada) University, the researchers decided to replace the harmful effects of tobacco on the body of cigarette lighters on the images of people's eyes.
The study involved 156 smokers, who were presented with two packs with the same motto ("How people see smokers"), but with different images. First, the packaging of cigarettes was illustrated in people with a neutral look but in another people disliked.
The experiment revealed that after seeing another picture, smokers felt ashamed and interested in quitting smoking.
however Workers emphasize that this method may not be completely ethical as it may cause more stress for those who can not quit smoking. For this reason, they suggest that more research is needed in this respect.
