Biography

In 1993, the press reported that R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. was suing Anthony Colucci. They sought a court order to bar Colucci from revealing confidential information he had gained during 15 years as a Reynolds scientist. Colucci, a smoker himself for more than 30 years, said on ABC's Primetime Live that Reynolds had shut down a biological research program in 1970 because it was on the verge of proving a link between smoking and lung cancer. Source: American Medical News, March 1, 1993. Dr Tony Colucci was a member of the Environmental Tobacco Smoke Advisory Group coordinated by the legal firm Shook, Hardy & Bacon circa 1985.
