Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Report: Graphic cigarette pack warnings headed for Europe | News | DW.DE | 13.12.2012

Germans are already warned in words that smoking is dangerous to their health and to those around them. A major daily has reported that soon, photos of smokers' damaged anatomies will seek to paint thousands of words.

German mass-circulation paper "Bild" reported on Thursday that the European Commission had agreed on a common policy for tobacco products, after months of delay.

Saying it has obtained a draft document from the EU's executive, Bild reported that more explicit, pictorial health warnings would be placed on packets - along with a ban on taste-enhancing additives such as those commonly found in menthol cigarettes. Terms like "Light" would also be outlawed, along with slim cigarettes, the paper said.
