ATLANTA -- Tobacco use is responsible for 87% of lung cancer deaths, most cases of chronic obstructive disease (COPD), which includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis, 21% of all coronary heart diseases and kills more than 400,000 Americans each year, with about 700 of those deaths occurring in Fulton County.

Fulton County Health Services, Division of Health Promotion and the Smoke Fee Coalition of Fulton County will sponsor the screening of the documentary film Addiction Incorporated.  If you think you know everything there is to know about cigarettes and nicotine, Addiction Incorporated will startle you with vital and often previously undisclosed information. Straight from the mouths of key players behind the scenes, Addiction Incorporated tells how Dr. Victor DeNoble, a former Phillip Morris research scientist, became one of the most influential whistleblowers in history, testifying before congress about his findings regarding the addictive nature of nicotine.
