    And people still do not care nor will think it will happen to them. They can hang out with oral surgery residents or maxilliofacial prosthodontists for a couple of days and see what these cancer sticks are capable of doing.

    Cigarette packs have this in Canada. As well as other things about impotence, problems during pregnancy, and periodontitis.

    Granted this isn't a scholarly article, but there is some evidence that suggests the pictures actually encourage smoking:
