Study finds benefits listed in larger text than risks in mags

A study of oncology drug ads in the magazines CURE, Coping With Cancer and MAMM found benefits presented more prominently and in larger text than risks. The study, presented to the American Society of Clinical Oncology's annual meeting, found that while benefits usually placed in the top third of the ad space, risks were often presented in smaller type and relegated to the lower half of the page.
