It’s quite exciting to see the EU develop hideous cigarette box graphics and photos of the effects of smoking. Denial is such a powerful thing. Trying to ignore what you already know–but don’t want to dwell on–is a basic human strategy for coping with distasteful things, like the true effects of how we destroy ourselves with smoking.
Odd, though, that Canada has had these images on cigarette boxes for several years now. BC’s Ministry of Health has published the tobacco poster child for years as well: quite hideous.
