Graphic Health Warning for Smoking in Canada




Graphic Health Warning for Smoking in Canada






The 8 pictures shown above are photocopies of the cigarette package bought in the province of Quebec, Canada,
in October 2007.


Tobacco product packaging displays health information messages on diseases caused by tobacco use or
tips on quitting smoking, which is printed on the inside slider or leaflet. The regulation that allowed for
these images became law in June 2000, making Canada the first country in the world to implement
such strong labelling and reporting measures.

上記掲載した8枚の写真はタバコの箱2分の1のスペースに表示されたフランス語で書かれた喫煙警告表示である。
いずれも2007年10月にカナダ・ケベック州にて購入したタバコの箱を撮影した。カナダ政府(Health Canada)は
タバコの箱の表示について画像を使用した警告表示、タバコの煙の毒性についての具体的な記述を記載せねば
ならないとの規制を設けている。


 

日本禁煙学会、掛園浩先生提供による写真提示および解説


The United Nations health agency called on governments to require that all tobacco packages include pictures
to warn consumers of the ill effects of tobacco use, which kills more than five million people every year. Studies
reveal that even among people who believe tobacco is harmful, few understand its specific health risks. Health
warnings on tobacco packages are a simple, cheap and effective strategy that can vastly reduce tobacco use and
save lives. Studies on the country of Brazil, Canada, Singapore and Thailand, in which the use of warnings
employing both pictures and text was carried out, reveal remarkably consistent findings on their positive impact.

世界保健機関(WHO)は2009年5月、タバコの健康被害を示す写真などをパッケージに印刷することをタバコ業界に
要求するよう各国政府に訴えた。日本などでは肺癌(がん)や心臓病への有害性を文字だけで表示しているが、タバコ病に
侵された人体部分の写真を表示して人々へ有害性の強烈な印象を与える国が増加して来ている。WHOによると、こうした
「画像警告」を最初に導入したカナダ、ブラジルなどでは人々に喫煙を思いとどまらせる「相当の効果」が出ているとの
調査結果もある。これまで両国を含む20カ国が導入。スイスなど4カ国が導入を準備中で、WHO幹部は「喫煙を大きく
減らして人命を守るための、簡単で低コスト、効果的な手法だ」と強調している。

Tobacco Product Labelling 2011

Graphic tobacco product labelling requirements were first adopted in 2000 to increase awareness of the health
and health effects associated with tobacco use. It establishes the current requirements for the health-related
information that must be displayed on tobacco products sold in Canada. It includes health warning messages,
health information messages and information about their toxic emissions or constituents. Research has shown
that while these messages were effective in raising awareness of the health influence associated with tobacco
use, they have reached their maximum potential. The proposed regulations would require the display of 16 new
health warning messages, 8 health information messages, and 4 toxic emissions statements on cigarette and
little cigar packages.

The labels combine strong images with messages that are noticeable, informative and credible. In September 2011,
the Tobacco Products Labelling Regulations (Cigarettes and Little Cigars) came into force with strengthened
labelling requirements for cigarettes and little cigar packages. Key features of the proposed regulations include:

  • graphic health warnings that cover 75% of the front and back of packages and include
  • a pan-Canadian quitline number and web address;
  • health information messages enhanced with colour; and
  • easy to understand toxic emissions statements.

Tobacco packaging warning messages are warning messages that appear on the packaging of cigarettes
and other tobacco products concerning the health effects of those products. They have been implemented
in an effort to enhance the public's awareness of the harmful effects of smoking.
