Scientists from the American Council on Science and Health today urged the nation's physicians and scientists to unite in rejecting any Congressionally sponsored "global deal" that would offer the cigarette industry immunity from current and future litigation. Such a deal which may be the product of negotiations now under way with the Philip Morris Cos. and RJR Nabisco Holdings Corp. was described in detail in a front-page article in the April 16, 1997, Wall Street Journal.
