Smokers would have a hard time overlooking the graphic images displayed on cigarette packages if federal health officials have their way. Illustrations of cancerous neck tumors, feet with amputated toes and diseased lungs are among the 13 new warnings that would be on cigarettes under a proposal on Thursday by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Color illustrations taking up half of the front of cigarette packs would warn consumers that, along with cancer, smoking causes heart disease, diabetes and impotence, the FDA stated. The labels would also appear on tobacco ads.
The article goes on to state the following:
If adopted, the new labels would represent the first change to cigarette warnings in 35 years, or since the U.S. Surgeon General’s warning for smoking was mandated in 1984.
The FDA said the current warnings are typically overlooked by smokers and may as well be “invisible.”
