Starting Monday, tobacco companies are supposed to have statements on their websites that warn American consumers about the health risks and addictiveness of their products.

The statements were ordered May 1 as part of a 2006 federal court decision that found the major cigarette manufacturers, including R.J. Reynolds and Philip Morris, had defrauded the public about the health risks of their products.

The so-called corrective statements on their websites, as well as the websites of their cigarette brands, will address five topics: smoking’s health effects, the addictiveness of smoking and nicotine, the lack of any benefits from cigarettes labeled “low tar” and “light,” how the delivery of nicotine was enhanced by cigarette design and secondhand smoke’s health effects. The statements will also be available in Spanish.
