The Canadian Cancer Society releases 5th edition of report on Cigarette Package Health Warnings

The report – Cigarette Package Health Warnings: International Status Report – ranks 205 countries and territories on the size of their health warnings on cigarette packages, and lists countries and territories that require graphic picture warnings.

The report also shows a significant global momentum toward plain packaging, with 4 countries requiring plain packs and 14 working on it.
“There is a powerful, worldwide trend for countries to use graphic pictures on cigarette packages to show the devastating health effects of smoking, and to require plain packaging,” says Rob Cunningham, senior policy analyst, Canadian Cancer Society.
