FDA says judge shouldn't stop cigarette warnings

The Associated Press: FDA says judge shouldn't stop cigarette warnings:

In response, the FDA said Friday that the public interest in conveying the dangers of smoking outweighs the companies' free speech rights. And it said the financial costs to the companies of switching to incorporate the new graphics equals about one-tenth of their annual net sales, which the FDA said is not sufficient to justify the injunction.
Well if it's about health then it's o.k. to expose people to some of the most disgusting warning labels ever.
Can't wait to see pictures of clogged arteries on stuff I buy at the grocery store next.
