Radio Australia  (ABC's international online and radio service for Asia and the Pacific) has published a story and a podcast about the research conducted at Perth University in western Australia.    The researchers used our APRIL Face Aging software in trials to show young adults their "aged smoker's face".  Researchers found that the importance of personal appearance at an older age is persuading some young adult smokers to quit.
