Starting Wednesday in Britain, cigarette boxes will feature printed images on the packets showing just how gruesome and harmful smoking can be.

The pictures will show cancerous lungs and throats, as well as yellow teeth and other side effects.

They’ll also feature new warning slogans, such as “Smoking can cause a slow and painful death” or “Smoking clogs the arteries and causes heart attacks and strokes.”

Warnings will start appearing today and will be mandatory starting next October.

They’ll also be printed on all tobacco products starting October 2010.
