The family of a woman who died from ovarian cancer after using Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder and other Johnson’s talcum products for 30 years has been awarded $72 Million in damages after a Missouri jury found the company guilty of fraud, negligence, and conspiracy, having known since the 1980s their products could cause cancer and willfully failing to inform the public of the potential dangers. And she’s not the only woman who has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer from using Johnson’s baby powder, either.
I put this up because it won’t be top news but people are still applying this product to their babies on a daily basis and it causes cancer!!!
