To offend for stop smoking : the way of the Spanish

http://www.20minutos.es/galeria is a Spanish website which show you lots of anti-smoking ads. These ads offend smokers and non-smokers, to quit them smoking or don’t start smoking. All these slogans on these ads are slogans that you can see on the packs of cigarettes, there are warming. There is a game with colour with the white (the fact of smoking), and the red (consequences of smoking) showing you that smoking is dangerous for your health.

In 2004 the European Comission launched images campaign which far packs of cigarettes. Thanks to a survey from psychology department, UNED, these two ads have more influence on people than the others that you can see on the website. The best image is a man with throat tumour.
