From Sina Weibo:

@央视新闻 [CCTV]: GIFs: Look At These Smokers’ Lungs! To Extend Your Life: Give Up Smoking! — Do you know? Over 80% of lunch cancer cases are believed to be caused by long-term smoking or “second hand smoke”! In the images, the lung of someone who has smoked for 15 years is covered with large black spots, while the lung of a 30-year smoker is even more of a ghastly sight, where even the inside is covered with cancer causing substances. [吃惊] Reshare this! Quit smoking!










Comments from Sina Weibo:


I bet a kuai there will be stupid cunts who say they need to smoke a cigarette to calm down/steady their nerves. [呵呵]


Looking at these scared me to death, I need to a cigarette to calm myself.


Given that smoking harms the country, why do we still allow the existence of tobacco companies? Isn’t this just deceiving oneself?


Scared me to death, must quickly smoke a cigarette to calm down.


Why bother trying to persuade people? Those who want to quit will have quit, and those who don’t want to will get lung cancer and still not quit…


I recommend all domestic tobacco product packaging have these images printed on them. [喵喵]


Although these images are very uncomfortable…I still ask that smokers please be mindful of their second-hand smoke! To say something people don’t want to hear, it’s as if you’re slowly killing yourself but at the same time taking others with you~~


Quick, must smoke a cigarette to steady myself.


Scary, too frightening. Although I don’t smoke, I sure have had plenty of second-hand smoke… I don’t smoke, but I can’t stop others from smoking~~ Follow original literature, welcome exchanges, thank you.


Scared me to death, I’m never going to use Weibo ever again.


It’s like black bugs. Extremely gross/nauseating.


If drugs can be prohibited, why doesn’t the government prohibit tobacco? 40% of the tax government’s revenue every year comes from tobacco. Without tobacco, would the country/government die?

CCTV is not always CCAV. Support our translations by becoming a patron. Thank you.
