Fumar es causa de cáncer (smoking is cause of cancer)
The warning above is not used in Guatemala. I have only seen it used in Mexico. In Guatemala, the warning on the cigarette boxes is pretty explicit Smoking will kill you, period.
I have no idea how and why in Mexico the message is spelled and constructed as to be ambiguous and fuzzy, like smoke, you know.
The sign above was seen at the Los Mojados Taquería (The Wetback Taco restaurant). It’s a subtle reminder that this is a “real” Mexican restaurant and not a ChapiMex restaurant.
