More Cigarette Photo Warnings Suggested

RTHK – 30 May 2009

The government has been urged to amend the Public Health Ordinance to enable the Health Department to change pictorial health warnings on cigarette packets on a regular basis. This came after a survey of nearly 47-thousand secondary school students showed that less than half of them felt the pictures currently displayed on the packets were effective enough to discourage them from smoking. The poll was conducted by the Committee on Youth Smoking Prevention.
