International comparison of cigarette prices and taxes


The United Nations health agency called on governments to require that all tobacco packages
include pictures to warn consumers of the ill effects of tobacco use, which kills more than five million
people every year. Studies reveal that even among people who believe tobacco is harmful.
Few understand its specific health risks. Health warnings on the tobacco package share a simple,
cheap and effective strategy that can vastly reduce a tobacco use and save lives. Studies carried out
on the use of warnings employing both pictures and text in Brazil, Canada, Singapore and Thailand
reveal remarkably consistent findings on their positive impact.


世界保健機関(WHO)は2009年5月、タバコの健康被害を示す写真などをパッケージに印刷することを
タバコ業界に要求するよう各国政府に訴えた。日本などでは肺癌(がん)や心臓病への有害性を文字だけで
表示しているが、タバコ病に侵された人体部分の写真を表示して人々へ有害性の強烈な印象を与える国が
増加して来ている。

WHOによると、こうした「画像警告」を最初に導入したカナダ、ブラジルなどでは人々に喫煙を思い
とどまらせる「相当の効果」が出ているとの調査結果もある。これまで両国を含む20ヵ国が導入。スイスなど
4カ国が導入を準備中で、WHO幹部は「喫煙を大きく減らして人命を守るための、簡単で低コスト、
効果的な手法だ」と強調している。
