A documentary about a tobacco-industry insider, and his campaign to expose the addictive nature of tobacco products, is starting a tour of Utah theaters on Tuesday, May 15.

The film, "Addiction Incorporated," tells of former Phillip Morris employee Victor DeNoble, who sought to develop a cigarette that would not cause heart damage. When DeNoble’s research uncovered proof of the intense addictiveness of cigarettes, the industry tried to keep him quiet.
