FDA Unveils New Cigarette Health Warnings

Consumers are getting a glimpse of graphic images that will be alternating on all cigarette packages and advertisements within 15 months—an effort by health officials to discourage smoking by bringing Americans face-to-face with tobacco-related disease.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) unveiled the nine color images—including some of  bodies ravaged by disease—at a Tuesday news conference.
