More Stats on Children

Research has shown that children under the age of 8 are unable to defend themselves against advertising and take advertisers claims as face value, which can usually be misleading. Although it would be impractical to ban advertising to children completely, come countries have tried to restrict the amount of advertising children see with time bans, for example, Greece does not allow any kind of advertising to children until after 10 p.m. and Norway and Sweden have banned all advertising to children under 12 entirely. Is it possible that this may have decreased the teenage pregnancy rates in these countries?
