Documentary Film on Tobacco Addiction Comes to Fulton County


Dear Friends / Colleagues,

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

Fulton County Department of Health Services, Division of Health Promotion, Smoke Free Coalition of Fulton County will sponsor the screening of the documentary film “Addiction Incorporated”. Please accept this invitation to join us at the documentary screening on Nov 29, 2012.

If you think you know everything there is to know about cigarettes and nicotine, Addiction Incorporated will startle you with its vital, previously undisclosed information. Straight from the mouths of the key players behind the scenes, Addiction Incorporated reveals exactly how the tobacco industry achieved behemoth power through scientific secrecy and what their next move may be. Addiction Incorporated tells the story of lies and manipulations engaged in by the tobacco industry to get new smokers to replace those who die. It also tells the story of those who had the courage to speak up and to take the industry to court.

The documentary screening will be followed by a facilitated Q & A session. Free admission and suitable for all ages.
