International health insurance customers might be interested to learn that there are calls to make cigarette packets plain in order to discourage smoking.
Amanda Sandford, research manager at Action on Smoking and Health (ASH), explained that smokers tend to ignore the current warnings on cigarette packets because the strength of the nicotine addiction is such that it overrides the health risk.
However, she added: "We know the tobacco industry puts a lot of resources into making the packs as attractive as possible.
"If that were no longer possible and all cigarettes were put into plain standardised packs, then they would be much less attractive and people would think twice about continuing to smoke."
According to estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, published for World No Tobacco Day (May 31st), approximately five million people around the world will die from tobacco-related heart attacks, strokes, cancers and other diseases.
Expatriates who are smokers might want to talk to their doctors about the health risks and how to quit.
