Study: The Simpsons causes smoking

http://www.yourtv.com.au/static/media/x300/239499_the_simpsons_tv_600x300.jpg Does watching The Simpsons compel you to light up a cigarette? It might, according to a new study which claims that the long-running cartoon series may encourage young children to smoke.

Researchers Dr Guy Eslick, a public health specialist from the University of Sydney, and Marielle Eslick sat through 400 episodes of The Simpsons from the show's first 18 seasons, and found that smoking was depicted or referenced 795 times.

The study, published in the Medical Journal of Australia, reported that smoking was portrayed in a neutral light 63 per cent of a time, positive two per cent and negative 35 per cent.

The Springfield residents who lit up most often were Marge's gravelly voiced sisters Patty and Selma, Krusty the Clown, and schoolteacher Mrs Krabappel.

The report conceded that many of the instances of smoking were satirical in nature, but added that young viewers might nevertheless be encouraged to take up the habit.

"Even instances of smoking being reflected in a negative way, particularly among younger characters, could have an impact on prompting children to smoke cigarettes," the study said.

You can fix the outcome of any research. It was only two peoples opinion and really does not matter.

:sign0104: I watch the simpsons and I hate the Faiders. I remember the episode when Homer was given the Denver Bronocs. To quote him

"Homer: [reading] "Project Arcturus couldn't have succeeded without you. This will get you a little closer to that dream of yours. It's not the Dallas Cowboys, but it's a start. Drop me a line if you're on the East Coast, Hank Scorpio." Aw, the Denver Broncos!
Marge: I think owning the Denver Broncos is pretty good.
Homer: Yeah, yeah.
Marge: Well, explain to me why it isn't.
Homer: [sighs] You just don't understand football, Marge
