Addiction Incorporated tells the true story of Victor DeNoble, an employee of Phillip Morris in the 1980s. He was asked to develop a cigarette that would not cause heart damage. Instead, his research produced scientific proof that cigarettes are intensely addictive and harmful. The documentary chronicles the industry’s attempts to keep this financially damaging information, and DeNoble, quiet.
“Addiction Incorporated is an inspiring true story about a man who sacrificed his career to expose tobacco industry tactics,” said Amy Oliver, marketing manager for The TRUTH campaign. “The people who see this film will walk away with even more reasons to fight the only industry in America whose product kills up to 50 percent of the people who use it exactly as intended.”
Tobacco use is the single greatest cause of preventable death in Utah, claiming more lives than car crashes, murders, suicides, AIDS, alcohol, drug abuse, and fires combined. For free help quitting smoking, call the Utah Tobacco Quit Line at 1.800.QUIT.NOW, or visit www.UtahQuitNet.com.
