Willemsen, Marc C.; de Zwart, Wil M.
Journal of Adolescence, v22 n5 p587-99 Oct 1999
Reviews international literature to identify the most effective measures to prevent smoking among adolescents. Concludes that isolated measures produce little effect. Most effect may be expected from a combination of a complete ban on tobacco advertising, increasing prices, restricting tobacco product sales to tobacconists, mass media education aimed at youth and intensifying school education.
