Graphic Cigarette Warning Labels On Packs Unveiled By FDA

The FDA will unveil new images that will possibly be on cigarette packs.  They would take up half the package, on the front and back.  Some are photos and some illustrations.  Seems a little outrageous, doesn’t it?

The FDA is proposing 36 labels for public comment, which include phrases like “smoking can kill you” and “cigarettes cause cancer,” but also feature graphic images to convey the dangers of tobacco use.

The number of Americans who smoke has fallen dramatically over the past 40 years, but those declines have stalled recently. About 46 million adults in the U.S., or 20.6 percent, smoke cigarettes, along with 19.5 percent of high school students.

  1. Why does the top waring say “Warning: Tobacco smoke CAN harm your children” instead of “Warning: Tobacco smoke harms your children?” I’m no linguist, but way it is written seems to suggest it is possible rather than a certainty.
