Documentary about tobacco's dangers goes on Utah tour
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.
The tour of the film is being presented by the Utah Tobacco Quit Line, which will screen the movie for free at the following dates and locations:
