If you haven't heard yet, yesterday the FDA announced new health warnings that will cover approximately half of all cigarette packaging beginning in September 2012. The warnings range from the emotional -- images of babies surrounded by smoke and people reacting to news they have cancer -- to the downright gory, all designed to scare smokers into quitting.

So, tell us, which of the following from the "gory" category do you find to be most disgusting? Take a gander -- and cast your vote -- below!

1. Speckled black lung
