- Tobacco & Smoking
Picture warnings will appear on all cigarette packs in Belgium by World No Tobacco Day 31 May 2007. This news was published in the Belgian Official Journal on 30 November. Belgium is the first Member State to implement the European Commission decision 2003/641/EC to publish picture warnings that depict and explain the health consequences of smoking. Scientific data from countries such as Canada and Brazil, that already publish pictures on cigarette packs showing the dangerous effects of tobacco use on health shows that they help curb tobacco use and uptake. It is hoped that other European countries will also decide to follow this initiative. Source: ENSP bulletin
