Tobacco Wars discussion topic of "Subversity"

Irvine -- Is the proposed legislation in Congress giving the tobacco industry immunity over future lawsuits the way to go? Critics were in Irvine yesterday at a UCI-sponsored day-long event, including a panel discussion. "Subversity", a public affairs program on KUCI, will present this evening excerpts from the discussion. Panelists include former FDA Commissioner David Kessler (now Dean of Yale Medical School); Mitch Zeller, associate FDA Commissioner; and Luanne Nyberg, Public Health Advisor, Minnesota Attorney General's Office, which has sued the tobacco industry over the harmful effects of the substance.
