Graphic Pictures Get The Message Across Better, Or do They?

Ok so in this Picture without any words it tells me that the guy has Lung problems, the middle girl has liver problems and the girl on the right is very healthy.

To me I like this picture as it says it all but what tickles me the most, is the girl in the middle swigging back the beer.

Boy does she look happy. 

But! Does it get the message across, well to me it does, but to a lot of people that are squeamish, I feel they would move away from this picture before any message was imparted to them.

So Maybe the best way to go is graphic picture with concise descriptive writings. 

However happy the two on the left look it made me go have some fruit instead of my usual thick toast with lots of melted butter running out, as i bit into it.

Yes John, these sort of graphic images do the job for me. But cigarette boxes for example: they have added graphic warnings on the side of boxes but I don't think it stops smokers from taking any second thought.

Hi Duncan,

Oh wow those cigarette ones are gruesome, and I am one that wont look at them, but as I dont smoke it is not a problem.

But seeing them on a table in a restaurant puts me off my food to say the least.

Have a good day and thanks for your comments

regards John
