Should major business organizations, such as tobacco companies and fast-food companies, have moral and social responsibilities to the public in what they produce, sell, and how they market? This evening’s program will explore this question.
ADDICTION INCORPORATED is the true story of Victor DeNoble, one of the most important and influential whistleblowers of all time… In the 1980s, DeNoble was a research scientist at a major tobacco company, where he proved something that the industry had been denying for years: that cigarettes were addictive. In a true act of modern-day heroism, DeNoble took his findings to the people despite a strict confidentiality agreement, eventually testifying about his research in the infamous 1994 Congressional hearings with the seven heads of the major tobacco companies. ADDICTION INCORPORATED is a story of one man risking everything to make a difference, shaking up a powerful industry and saving countless lives along the way. 1 hr 42 mins, rated PG
