Cigarettes Get Gutsy New Warning Labels

Ad Feedback

Cigarette packages will now have a bolder label on them warning smokers of their risks.

The Food and Drug Administration released the larger, graphic warning labels in a new effort to reduce tobacco use.

The labels show images of corpses, cancer patients, and diseased lungs and teeth.

Canada uses similar labels on their cigarette packaging.

The latest prevention plan is part of a law passed last year giving the FDA authority to regulate tobacco marketing.

Each year about 443,000 people die from tobacco use.
