PJ Online | PJ Letters: Smoking cessation
The Pharmaceutical Journal
From Mr A. F. Huntley, MRPharmS
Terry Maguire described my suggestion that a photograph of a diseased lung should appear on cigarette packets as "simplistic scare tactics" (PJ, 28 September, p438). It appears that Alan Milburn, Secretary of State for Health, does not agree.
"Milburn steps up war against smoking", says The Guardian (November 21). And how is he to do this? "Graphic warnings, which could include pictures of diseased hearts, lungs and brains, will be added to cigarette packets as the European Union and British Government step up action against smoking," the Health Secretary said.
