Denmark - possible graphic warnings on cigarette packs..

May 4, 2009 - The Health Minister, Jakob Axel Nielsen, favors graphic warnings (on tobacco products, cigarettes)and believes that they will be ‘implemented’ when the government launches its national prevention-based health plan after the summer vacation. Nielsen does not need the government’s backing to put the proposal into effect since his ministry has the authority to do that itself.

It's probably best for the health minister to wait for the results of the European Union (EU) - study aimed at developing better graphic images.. -
