Details About New Cigarette Health Warnings

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – For the first time in 25 years, the FDA is making big changes to cigarette health warnings that appear on packaging and advertisements.

Some of these warnings include images of autopsy patients, diseased lungs, and sick babies.

KDKA-AM’s Larry and John talk to Dr. Lawrence Deyton, Director of the Center for Tobacco Products at the USDA, for more on these graphic images that are coming to a pack of cigarettes near you around September 2012.
