A4 WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1996 NEWS THE SALINA JOURNAL V CIGARETTES Smoking foes seek tougher warnings They want packages to carry a tougher message to smokers By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Smoking foes say the warning labels on cigarette packages aren't doing enough to teach Americans the true consequences of tobacco. Citing the bigger, blunter warnings that some other countries require — such as Australia's "Smoking Kills" — they're planning to launch a new effort to strengthen the notices for the first time in 12 years. Among the goals: to have the Surgeon General's warning on cigarette packs declare that smoking is addictive. "The warnings are insufficient and have been insufficient over a period of decades," said Rep. Martin Meehan, D-Mass., who is offering the legislation. The tobacco industry denies that cigarettes are addictive or that they kill, but it also says Americans know that smoking poses "health risks." Indeed, the fact that Americans knew of health risks and smoked anyway is key to the industry's defense against hundreds of lawsuits. "This is certainly not a new sub- T RADIATION STUDY Cigarette packages sold In the U.S. must bear one 6f the followlrig Surgeon General's warnings: « Smoking causes, lung cancer, heart d(seas£, ' emphysenmarid may , complicate pregnancy. • Quitting smoking now greatly reduces serious risks to your health. • Smoking by pregnant women may result in. fetal injury, premature birth and low birth weight. -.

But many Americans are unaware that cigarettes can cause problems other than cancer and heart disease, such as impotence, blindness and stomach ulcers. Those are just a few of the dangers listed in the newly published "Cigarettes: What the Warning Label Doesn't Tell You," a collection of scientific studies compiled by the American Council on Science and Health. Panel: Deaths not linked to 1946 radiation tests Panel finds no fallout from nuclear tests performed in the Pacific By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Thousands of participants in two nuclear tests in the Pacific in the 1940s show a slightly higher death rate, but there is no evidence to link the in. creased fatalities to radiation exposure, a panel of scientists has concluded. To the contrary, the panel said in a report released Tuesday that among the military personnel studied there was no significant increase in deaths from either cancer or leukemia, two categories where elevated mortality should be expected as result of radiation expo- sure. The report by the National Academy of Sciences' Institute of Medicine focused on 42,000 military personnel — mostly Navy — who participated in two nuclear tests in 1946 called Operation Crossroads. The tests, which consisted of a nuclear blast 520 feet above the water and a second underwater blast, was designed to show the effects of a nuclear bomb on ships, equipment and material. More than 90 abandoned Navy ships were put in the target area and 150 other vessels housed observers and other personnel within a 10- mile radius. The tests have caused concern that Navy cleanup crews may have been exposed unnecessarily to unusually high levels of radiation in the days following the blast.
