The New FDA Anti-Smoking Health Warnings are Graphic and Effective

— June 22, 2011 — Pop Culture
The new FDA anti-smoking health warnings that will take their place on newer cigarette packs are some of the most graphic and shocking efforts yet. But will it work? The labels feature images of a man exhaling smoke through a hole in his neck, a corpse with stitches over his chest who presumably died of lung disease and many others with blunt statements such as "Cigarettes Cause Fatal Lung disease" and "Smoking Can Kill You."

US Government officials announced today that the images must be added to all cigarette packaging and advertising in the U.S. by October 2012. The images are the biggest change to warning labels in over 25 years, but the anchor who broke the story made a great point, saying that if $14/pack hasn't done anything to reduce smoking levels, he's not sure how the new images will have any real impact.

According to The Wall Street Journal, "The U.S. is following more than 40 countries that have already put graphic warnings on cigarettes. Current warning labels, which were put on cigarette packs in the 1980s, are contained in a small box with black and white text warning about the dangers of smoking."
