According to this article, Portuguese cigarette packs contain much more explicit explanations of the effects of cigarettes than other countries' packs.  The Portuguese packs contain sayings of smoking "causes slow, painful deaths."  The most I saw on my mom's packs when she smoked was "the Surgeon General warns that there are negative effects to smoking."
