Health and life insurance firms in the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom hold at least $4.4 billion in investments in companies that manufacture tobacco products, according to an article in the June 4, 2009 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. Physorg.com reported June 3 that researchers from the Cambridge Health Alliance and Harvard School of Medicine found that insurance companies continue to invest in tobacco companies; the same group of researchers published an article in 1995 that reported similar results.
