The Peace of God to all that belong to the Light,
We have grown along many generations listening in the radio or in the TV or in the internet the so suggestive propaganda of different talcum companies
that claim to have the ultimate remedy to cut the bad odor of transpiration on feet and make them feel fresh and rested even after hours of being
standing up or walking.
One of the most emblematic manufacturers of Talcum powder in the world has be sued and found responsible of certain kind of Cancer cases for some
ingredient of their product.
We are talking about the so famous Johnson & Johnson Talcum powder. Please check this information since apparently it is not an isolated incident but
something that has old story behind, just in Missouri it seems that around 1000 suspicious cases have been reported.
Carol Goodrich, a Johnson & Johnson spokeswoman, said the company stands by the talc used in all “global products” and they are
“evaluating” their legal options. “The recent U.S. verdict goes against decades of sound science proving the safety of talc as a cosmetic
ingredient in multiple products, and while we sympathize with the family of the plaintiff, we strongly disagree with the outcome,” Goodrich said in
Johnson & Johnson was forced to pay a compensation of about 72million dollars just for this death. The $72 million payout represents $10 million in
actual damages and $62 million in punitive damages. Johnson & Johnson is considering an appeal.
The ruling is the first payout of its kind by Johnson & Johnson, though a federal jury in South Dakota found in 2013 that the company’s powder was
linked to ovarian cancer.
Jackie Fox died of ovarian cancer in 2015, aged 62, two years after being diagnosed with the illness. Her family said she used Johnson & Johnson's
talcum powder for nearly 50 years, and claimed her death was a direct result.
The family argued the company knew about the possible risks of using products containing talc, but failed to warn consumers about them.
The case is part of a wider lawsuit brought by nearly 50 women against Johnson & Johnson.
The thread is obviously open to the free discussion provided that you remain in topic and reply under the rules of decorum in the communication.
