Dr. Cummings is a senior research scientist in the Department of Cancer Control and Epidemiology at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, NY (1994 (LAT 9/18/94). Cummings says: "Scientists by their very nature are very cautious . . . . That's one of the things the tobacco industry has exploited, they look for people to run counter. If the tobacco industry can find a person or two to expound the opposite view, it creates controversy, casts doubt on the other scientists. They won't say what they believe. It's science by intimidation. Controversy means no grants, no funding, no tenure. Money is something scientists must have and the tobacco industry and the research council Council for Tobacco Research have plenty of it." (L.A. Times 9/18/94). He has knowledge of tobacco and smoking prevalence.
