CAUTION - Graphic. New CDC Smoking campaig.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is launching a graphic anti-smoking advertising campaign across the country in an effort to try to reduce the smoking rate, which has stalled at about 20 percent in recent years. The campaign launching Monday (March 20th) is the first nationwide ad effort for the CDC, and will include billboards and print, radio and TV ads showing people whose smoking resulted in cancer, heart surgery, a tracheotomy, lost limbs or paralysis. AP described one ad, which shows a man who had a tracheotomy after being diagnosed with head and neck cancer shaving, with his razor moving down toward a gaping hole at the base of his neck that he uses to speak and breathe.
