Graphic Anti-Smoking Warnings.

UK Department of Health are asking the public to choose a series of graphic warnings that will appear on cigarette packets:

Evidence shows that images have a greater impact than written health warnings alone, and they have already been introduced in some countries.

Images include diseased lungs, a dying smoker and a foetus in the womb. ...

Launching the consultation, Health Secretary Patricia Hewitt, said: "We have already made a lot of progress with the stark written warnings on cigarette packs.

"However, these messages become less effective over time so we now need to refresh our approach by introducing new hard-hitting images.

"We know that these type of warnings have already been successful in other countries such as Canada, Singapore and Brazil.
