Smoking Warning Labels

In his blog post on Libertarian Paternalism Judge Richard Posner writes:

The dangers of smoking are well known; indeed, they tend to be exaggerated–including by smokers. (The increased risk of lung cancer from smoking is smaller than most people believe.)

Does this mean that government mandated warning labels on cigarettes should read "Smoking is probably not as dangerous as you think."
