Interesting Fact - Cigarettes

A study, by researchers at the University of Waterloo in Canada, has shown hat something as simple as the colour of a cigarette packet can fool smokers into thinking the cigarettes it contains are less dangerous to their health.

(Around 80 percent of participants in the study believed that cigarettes in a light blue packet would deliver less tar, have a smoother taste and pose less of a danger to health than those in darker blue packaging. But then again, smokers blithely ignore the "Cigarettes can kill you" messages, so maybe we shouldn't take that much notice of what influences them and what doesn't.)
