Cigarette packets in New Zealand will now display graphic images of diseased lungs and rotting teeth and gums.
The gruesome displays, introduced by the government to try to turn people off smoking, are part of the Ministry of Health’s five-year tobacco control plan, launched in 2004.
There are around 5,000 smoking-related deaths each year in New Zealand.The government gains around NZ$980m revenue from tobacco per year.
The use of such images is common overseas, the Ministry of Health says.
