FDA's Graphic Cigarette Warning Labels Revealed
New labels will help prevent children from smoking and help adults quit
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has unveiled the nine graphic health warnings required to appear on every pack of cigarettes sold in the United States and in every cigarette advertisement. The measure is designed to help prevent children from smoking, encourage adults who do smoke to quit, and ensure that every American understands the dangers of smoking.
The warnings represent the most significant changes to cigarette labels in more than 25 years and will affect everything from packaging to advertisements and are required to be placed on all cigarette packs, cartons and ads no later than September 2012.
