The federal government is testing graphic new warnings to wrap around cigarette packages, and the stark message is clear: smoking is bad and it can damage more than your lungs.

The proposed warnings, shown to focus groups across the country, are meant to reinforce what people already know about cigarettes and add information that’s less widely known. Canadians reported that cigarette packages with graphic images and pointed health warnings are more effective than cliches or rhyming slogans.
