Scared Yet? We Are

U.S. FDA officials have unveiled 36 potential images, many of them
gruesome, to go on cigarette packages in accordance with a new law requiring all such lethal packs to bear anti-smoking messages. Dead bodies, ruined mouths, sick babies: you name it, we got it.

"When the rule
takes effect, the health consequences of smoking will be obvious every
time someone picks up a pack of cigarettes." - U.S. Food and Drug
Administration Commissioner Dr. Margaret A. Hamburg.
