FDA Issues Graphic Cigarette Warning Labels: Meat, Dairy Products Need Similar
June 30, 2011

Expelled: Processed meats cause cancer. So why do schools feed them to children?

Last week, the FDA released new graphic cigarette package warning labels. It says the warnings will result in “lives saved, increased life expectancy, and lower medical costs.” Similar warnings on meat and dairy products could do the same. The risks associated with cigarette smoking are the same as consuming meat and dairy products: death, addiction, cancer, stroke, and heart disease.
