FDA’s Shocking Images to Discourage Smoking

The Food and Drug Administration is accepting public comment on 36 images it developed to deter smoking. Many of the images, like the one at left, are eye-catching to say the least.

A law passed last year requires larger and more graphic warnings displayed on cigarette packs. The warnings have to appear by October 22, 2012 and must be placed on the top half of the pack with the brand name of the cigarette on the bottom and on the front and back of the pack.

The FDA is seeking comment through January 9, 2011. All of the images are available on the FDA website.
