New Cigarette Warnings Hoped To Be More Effective

Dispite the objection of the corporations which promote cigarettes, the US is joining many countries which provide graphic warnings.

Various studies showed that current warnings had lost their power and effectiveness. The new warnings will be larger, taking up half of the cigarette pack and they will be in color with clear statements regarding health risks.

Those profiting from cigarette promotion know the younger smoking is started the harder it is to quit the nicotine addiction. Many start as young teens.

Although some of their flagrant marketing has been stopped, the cigarette corporations are still, for profit,  pushing a known carcinogen which cause a horrible painful death. Shame on them. The fact is cancer is the last thing most think of when they take their first drag.
