I just saw on my channel 4..that they did this test for teens and took a picture of 2 teenage girls..and then showed them what they would look like years from now..and showed all the wrinkles and sagging eyes..and change of color in there face..from yellow to grayish..it was soo nasty! AND i was thinking of well hell..if they showed that to me in high school.i never would have started smoking..and they are talking about putting that in our schools..talking in quotes i should say.but i think its an awesome idea! heres a clip of what i watched in the right side of the page..what do u think? http://www.wivb.com/global/Category.asp?c=33895

I wish this would work but kids today will try anything to make them "look" cool. You tell them that they will die and kids still do. Also if this was going to work it would only work on girls I think because most men dont care how they look

Oh yeah, lets use scare tactics to control the minds of our youth....Lets not just show them the hard evidence of the cancer potential and all the deterents to health. It is a time in our society that we need to let the youth make their own descions about life AFTER presenting the truth in hard evidence fashion. That way, when they choose to ignore all the warnings and make the wrong choices, they learn the lesson to pass on to the next generation. It's a harsh way of teaching but I believe it is the only way to instill an ideal. It follows along the same line as parents letting kids spend the one night in jail for their misdeed. They must make their own choices are they are doomed to fail.

I think it might bring a few to reality, but most of them think they are invincible.
