    Scientists want to put gruesome cigarette-style picture warning labels on chocolate to put you off

    Would you still be in the mood for a Mars bar if it came with a photo of someone getting open heart surgery? Experts suggest cigarette-style warnings on the nation’s favourite chocolate bars could help tackle obesity.  Similar pictures have adorned tobacco products since 2008 and are credited with pushing smoking rates down in the UK in recent years.
