This study evaluated the effect of the first graphic warning labels on cigarette packs in Mexican smokers. Results showed that from 2010 (before the warnings were implemented) and 2011 (after warnings were implemented), smokers’ knowledge about smoking risks, the toxic components of tobacco, and the quitline number for help with quitting all increased significantly. Recent ex-smokers in 2011 reported that pack warnings had influenced their decision to quit. The authors conclude that the first graphic health warnings on cigarette packs in Mexico have had a significant impact on knowledge and behavior.
