A new graphic tobacco warning in 2012

U.S. unveils graphic tobacco warnings.

Diseased lungs, dead bodies, a man on a ventilator and mothers smoking close to their children's faces
are among the images U.S. health officials are considering in their effort to revamp tobacco warning labels.
The graphic health warnings," unveiled in November 2010, aim to depict the negative effects of smoking,
and they will be required on all cigarette packages and advertisements as of October 2012. More
prominent warnings on cigarette packages, including larger text labels, were mandated in a June 2009 law
putting the multibillion-dollar tobacco industry under the control of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

These warnings are based on the best evidence about how to raise awareness and concern about the
health effects of smoking with at-risk youth and smokers "For the first time ever, they will say that
tobacco products are addictive, and they will say in the bluntest of terms that tobacco can kill,"
FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg said. We need to make sure that anyone who is considering
smoking fully appreciates the consequences of cigarette use." But investors are skeptical that
the warnings will have much impact on sales of cigarettes. Charles Norton, a portfolio manager
GNI Capital, said similar efforts in other markets around the world have had a little effect. "I think
it will ultimately have a very limited impact on consumption," Norton said. Philip Morris, the largest
U.S. cigarette maker, supported the overall bill, while some smaller rivals opposed it.
