Armstead B. Hudnell was Chair of the T.R.U.T.H. Forum, and was a vocal proponent of the point of view that cigarettes benefit health.

T.R.U.T.H. stood for "Tobacco Review Unbiased on Tobacco & Health."


In 1967 Hudnell "invented" a "safer cigarette" by punching a hole at the base of the filter to create dilution of smoke.(Bates No. 1002609082-Press release, 1967). In 1970 Philip Morris patented a ventilated cigarette.(2051804634/4638)

Hudnell convinced his congressman to write Joseph Califano protesting the Surgeon General's report on Smoking and Health saying the report neglected to mention the health benefits of smoking.
