Graphic Anti-Smoking Warnings Change Cigarette Taste

In the months since graphic anti-smoking warnings have appeared on Australian cigarette and other places abroad, packaging in smokers have complained that the cigarettes don’t taste as good as they did before the health warnings.
According to The New York Times, “More than seven months have passed since Australia imposed one of the world’s toughest laws for tobacco warning labels, swapping iconic packaging for graphic images of mouth ulcers, cancerous lungs and gangrenous limbs. And though experts say it is too soon to know what impact the law has had on tobacco use, one thing is certain: Smokers think the cigarettes taste off. Complaints started to roll in about the flavor of cigarettes almost immediately after the law went into effect on December 1.”
