Lets face it — everyone knows smoking isn’t good for you. Adults who have made the choice to smoke are aware of the dangers and the things that exist to help stop smoking. Pictures of blackened lungs and limp members have not made a difference so why on earth would Health Canada think this is going to?
Health Canada is considering ordering cigarette companies to put deathbed photos of an emaciated cancer victim on every package.
Health Canada is now testing 49 new health warnings for possible placement on cigarette packages. Two of the new warnings feature photographs of Edmonton anti-smoking activist Barb Tarbox, taken just before her death from cancer.
This is just gruesome and odd. Go back to the drawing board Health Canada — seriously — NOW!
