Visualization of Smoking
Recently tobacco control movement becomes more intensive.
At the end of the last year the Public Health Service submitted a plan, according to which all tobacco companies were required to place warning images on cigarette packages. FDA (The Food and Drug Administration) released 36 proposed color graphic images which include terrifying pictures of dead bodies, diseased organs etc.
Recall that the first graphic anti-smoking images on cigarette packages appeared in Canada, 2000. Then Brazil, Australia, Chili, Iran, Singapore and some other countries adopted this method as well.
Besides delegates from 172 countries agreed to recommend tobacco producers be required to disclose their ingredients to health authorities.
