Wednesday, January 28, 2015 Bribing Pregnant Women to Quit Smoking

Another story from 
the Daily Mail...
This one by Jenny Hope 
looks at the use of bribery 
as incentive for Mothers-to-be.
Under similar smoking 
cessation programs, a study
jointly run by professors at
Glasgow and Stirling 
Universities found that if 
financial incentives were 
offered, it greatly
increased the likelihood
that an expectant mother 
would make more of an 
effort to quit. £400 bribes to help pregnant women stop smoking: Mothers-to-be twice as likely to quit if they have a financial incentive
