China Should Follow WHO Recommendations To Use Explicit Warnings On Cigarette Packages

New York Times: China and the Toll of Smoking
“The World Health Organization released a report last week urging China to use graphic warnings on cigarette packages to fight the tobacco epidemic. It is a sensible and effective idea that China should heed. … The simple warning label currently on Chinese cigarette packages says only that smoking is hazardous to your health. Large, clear warnings and images on cigarette packages would be far more effective” (4/17).
