LONDON (Reuters) - Philip Morris, one of the world's leading tobacco manufacturers, was involved in research
into the health effects of smoking 30 years ago but did not reveal data on the dangers of passive smoking, scientists
Although the tobacco industry claimed for many years that it was not aware of the toxic effects of cigarettes, the
researchers said material from internal industry documents revealed Philip Morris used a German research facility to
study the health impact of smoking from the early 1970s.
