Lies, Damned Lies and Statistics: Risk Reduction Framing and the Power of Prominent Brands
Direct-to-consumer advertising for products designed to reduce risk relies on consumers’ ability to understand statistical information.

Relative (vs. absolute) framing is preferred, but this effect is obviated in the presence of a prominent brand.
