Your article makes several excellent points.
The reality is that more people die in their sleep than anywhere else. Does this mean that beds should have labels that say to warn people of their lethality?
As a society, we do go overboard with warning labels saying what should be obvious. Such warning labels have become so ubiquitous that most of us have become completely oblivious to them.
That said, one of the cleverest uses of warning labels occurred during our nation's experiment with prohibition nearly a century ago. Forbidden from selling wine, the wineries in upstate New York merely started shipping grape juice instead -- with a very conspicuous warning label on each package.
"WARNING: DO NOT MIX FIVE GALLONS OF GRAPE JUICE WITH FIVE POUNDS OF SUGAR AND STORE AT 70 DEGREES FOR TWO WEEKS, AS THIS WILL CAUSE THE GRAPE JUICE TO FERMENT AND BECOME WINE, WHICH IS ILLEGAL."
That warning label probably got more attention than most!
