carbon monoxide vs carbon monoxide

looking at a British (UK duty) pack of cigarettes, noticed their warning labels (see below) are much more emphatic/plain spoken than the warning labels on American packs of cigarettes. witness:

SMOKING KILLS

SMOKERS DIE YOUNGER

links re: weaker warning labels on American cigarettes

"U.S. Cigarette Companies Fail to Warn Foreign Smokers of Tobacco Dangers; Grossly Inadequate Warning Labels on American Cigarette Packs Sold in Developing Countries."

ditto

though a cigarette smoker, find it very interesting.

also, think its comparative to the recent global warming report brouhaha...

"An authoritative international global warming conference lapsed into an unprecedented showdown between scientists and diplomats over authors' concerns that governments were watering down their warnings."
