Biography

Bogdan Prokopczyk of the American Health Foundation (1994) separated and analyzed the reconstituted tobacco portion of several brands of R.J. Reynolds cigarettes for ABC's Day One program. (The ABC Day One program concluded that tobacco companies manipulate levels of nicotine in cigarettes). Reconstituted tobacco ordinarily contains 25% or less of the nicotine in regular tobacco but the samples tested by AHF had up to 70% of the nicotine that would be found in regular tobacco. Prokopczyk said the most likely explanation is that nicotine was added by R.J. Reynolds (Day One 2/28/94).
