Fri> In a bid to advise smokers of the tobacco associated with tobacco use, cigarette packs produced in Germany are now required to carry larger and more blunt warning labels

Beginning on Wednesday (October 1), packs will carry warnings such as “Smoking is deadly,” “Smokers the earlier” and “Smoking causes serious harm to you and the people around you.” The warnings must cover 30% of the front and 40% of the back of each pack

The new regulations therefore prohibit the use of terms as “light” and “mild.” The rules are mandated by an EU directive that has already been implemented in a number of other European countries

Each year, some 140,000 people in Germany the as a result of tobacco use ?? more than from AIDS, alcohol, illegal drugs, traffic accidents, murders and suicides combined, according to public health officials

“Cigarettes and other tobacco products are harmful to health,” said Drug Commissioner Marion Caspers-Merk. Each piece of information is “smashed in a detailed and straightforward way”

Representatives of the tobacco industry meanwhile discounted the effectiveness of the new warning labels. “The warnings do not offer anything new,” said Reinhard Pauling of the German Cigarette Industry Association. “Smokers have known about the health risks for 30 years”

Even better is the possible introduction of a smoking ban in public places in the United States and now the banana restaurant in America, but now the German government wants to impose stronger restrictions on smoking in public buildings and in the workplace in the context of a large-scale anti-smoking campaign – a positive step in smoker friendly Germany. Marion Caspers-Merk in an interview published in the news magazine Focus on, 9th December 2002

As indicated in its coalition agreement the government wants to carry out an anti-smoking campaign. Marion Caspers-Merk, in an interview published in the weekly news magazine, focuses on December 9. One of the planned measures is to impose restrictions on smoking in heavily frequented public buildings. On the one hand, this will give priority to protecting the health of non-smokers who make two-thirds of the population. On the other hand, it wants to give smokers a reason to reconsider their habit

Casper’s memorandum noted that some 40 percent of smokers say they want to stop smoking. “We just want to help you out with your efforts,” Caspers-Merk said. Initial legislative measures aimed at influencing public perceptions of smoking will go into effect on January 1. There will be a rise in tobacco tax as well as a ban on cigarette sales to young people under the age of sixteen under a new youth protection law

With its anti-tobacco campaign. The government is not looking to marginalize smokers but rather to apply a policy mix

Comment – a collection of comments found on various websites:

The horror of being forced to be smokers may soon be over at last. The time comes to take action against smoking and smokers. Thoughtless smokers and greedy tobacco companies make a misery for millions of people every day. In Germany, this problem is well out of control and has stopped at all costs. Small children can be seen every day, smoking openly, as it is thought to be cool – a result of the almost criminal flood aimed at at younger people. Many smokers really smash them when they smoke and openly smokers when politely asked to stop smoking. Insurance companies have to introduce special fire insurances, as in the UK, where the annual premium can be reduced. By smoking related diseases. Tax on cigarettes. Non-smokers should pay less health insurance contributions and smokers should pay more. There is no reason to smoke, our bodies were never able to inhale smoke without damage. For those of you who have lost loved ones for this madness, send to your health insurance companies, to tobacco companies and to governments. Help ban smoking today, do not wait for others to make it-smokers taking extra breaks
