On a recent trip to Italy I was amazed when I saw these pictures on packs of cigarettes.If this isn't enough to scare a smoker away from these nicotine delivery devices,I don't know what will. For the benefit of my readers I am reproducing what I think is the best of them on my blog.
Smoking in Italy has been banned in public places including bars,restaurants,and offices since 2005. Since the ban,there's been an 8% decrease in cigarette consumption,and cardiovascular disease dropped significantly.In 2014,smoking accounted for 12.5% of all deaths in Italy. Even with these graphic packages,nearly 20% of the Italian population still smoke.
So here are my photos of cigarette packages in Italy. I know that many of my readers are in the医疗行业，so feel free to download and use them in lectures andteaching materials – no permissions necessary!These images reallysay a lot.
