How Does Drug and Supplement Marketing Affect a Healthy Lifestyle?
This research investigates consumer reactions to the marketing of drugs and supplements and the consequences for a healthy lifestyle. A series of experiments provides evidence that drug marketing undermines healthy lifestyle intentions by reducing motivation and efficacy to engage in health-protective behaviors. Supplements “turn on” whereas drugs “tune out” complementary health-protective behaviors (such as healthy eating and physical activity) that contribute toward a healthy lifestyle.
