NEW YORK, March 26 (UPI) -- The parent company of a cigarette maker paid for a U.S. study that said increased use of CT scans can prevent lung cancer deaths.
The 2006 Weill Cornell Medical College study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, said 80 percent of lung cancer deaths could be prevented by CT scans. A New York Times investigation found that the study was almost entirely underwritten by grants from Vector Group, the parent company of the Liggett Group, maker of Liggett Select, Eve, Grand Prix, Quest and Pyramid cigarettes.
