Although Johnson & Johnson marketing managers are sticking with the same mantra, talc is safe, Johnson & Johnson has now LOST THREE lawsuits against them for ovarian cancer caused by their talc powder, oh, and tried to bribe a victim.

We are up to the THIRD LOST TRIAL against Johnson & Johnson reguarding talc for not warning women and mothers their talc-based products for use in the genital area increases the risk of developing cancer by over 30%.
The FIRST case against them was in 2013 in South Dakota. Although he victim, Deane Berg, was not awarded any damages, talc-based products by Johnson & Johnson were likely responsible Deane Berg developing ovarian cancer. She turned down an offer to be gagged with $1.3 million - obviously her interest was not money, but concern for other people - getting the word out. Thank you very much, Deane Berg.
You'd think after losing the first case Johnson & Johnson would have voluntarily shown concern for women's health and either pulled the talc-containing products from the market or at least put a warning on the label disclosing the risk. Well, no, they just regurgitate the talc is safe, like allllll these other products, eh? Uh, no.
The SECOND case Johnson & Johnson lost regarding undisclosed 30% increased risk of developing ovarian cancer from talc was February of 2016 in St. Louis, Missouri in the United States. The victim, Jackie Fox, died due to ovarian cancer before the completion of the trial. Johnson & Johnson was ordered to pay $72 million; $10 million in compensatory damages and $62 million awarded to her family.
You'd think after losing the SECOND case Johnson & Johnson would have voluntarily shown concern for women's health and either pulled the talc-containing products from the market or at least put a warning on the label disclosing the risk. Well, no, they just regurgitate the talc is safe, like allllll these other products, eh? Uh, no.
You'd also think, that after I sent tweets to United States Food and Drug Administration, United Senate HELP Committee, and ALL other United States Senators information regarding the dramatically increased risk of developing ovarian cancer, since Johnson & Johnson was refusing to either pull the known harmful product or at least put appropriate information of the risks clearly on the label, those in charge of protecting our safety would have acted in our best interest. Can't say our senators are unaware when so many have visited the web site as proven by IP address. However, so far absolutely NO action has been taken by those in charge of our safety. or those in charge of those in charge of our safety. Millions of women are STILL using a product that they do not know is increasing their risk of developing killer ovarian cancer, not only on themselves, but also on their OWN BABY GIRLS. Imagine that, eh?
So here we are with the THIRD lost Johnson & Johson talc trial. Johnson & Johnson is somehow still claiming THREE juries are WRONG and their product is safe. Okay..... whatever they want to try to make us believe, eh?
Guess that means the company is not going to remove toxic talc from the market or even give women and mothers the information regarding increased ovarian cancer risk on the label.
Wonder if, now that there are THREE lost trials, the United States Senate HELP Committee or United States Food and Drug Administration will act to either remove talc-based products from the market or at least require the ovarian cancer information on the label of talc-based products. Don't worry, I won't hold my breath...
