Graphic Cigarette Warning Labels
Pictures speak louder than words. Cigarette labels like these from Thailand with a man on a ventillator (left) and another with rotten teeth (right) speak volumes. No one reads cigarette warning labels as they are in the USA. A recent study demonstrated that the warning labels in the US are not as effective as graphic labels used on cigarette packages from overseas.
Of course, adding a few dollars taxation to a pack of cigarettes helps deter the urge to smoke, too.
