There tends to be a bit of controversy when it comes to America’s movie rating system. There has been a lot of difficulties between directors, studios and the MPAA ratings board which was shown in the 2006 documentary, This Movie is Not Yet Rated, and Times Magazine explains Hollywood has one more things to report. An “R” rating should be given to any movies that have smoking in them if you ask the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC). This will help protect young teens and children. Post resource – Study suggests giving R-rating to films that depict smoking by Personal Money Store.

Smoking product placing from tobacco industry illegal

The CDC study indicates that although tobacco companies were banned in 1998 from being able to pay to place their products in films, there’s nevertheless more smoking in films today than there was at that time. Those who see smoking in films, or in real life, are more likely to try smoking their lifetime, as reported by the CDC. Public health officials have reported concern over the potential for future health troubles. The suggestion that there be less smoking in movies happened because of the amount of smoking in G, PG and PG-13 films.

Finding other methods to stop it all

There were two other suggestions given by the CDC for the R-rated films. These include having the credits say nobody associated with the film was given compensation for the smoking shots and also having anti-smoking ads before the film begins. The CDC was not the first group to bring up the idea that smoking needs to make a movie R. The World Health Organization made this suggestion previously. Smoking in films marketed to kids and teens is socially irresponsible, says the WHO.

Pay too much for the smoking addiction

Now seems like smoking will always be costly. It always costs more than it did last time. Anti-smoking is encouraged by MSN Money. MSN Money explains this. A 40-year-old smoker who kicks the habit and funnels the money spent on cigarettes and the associated dry cleaning and higher health insurance rates into something more productive like a 401 (k) could conceivably conserve more than $ 250,000 by age 70. Payday loans and installment loans for bad credit are needed by the many who determine unhealthy lungs is more significant than a nice retirement. The R-rated scene might really just be purchasing into the expense of smoking.
