Paid for with gifts from consumers who appreciate the amount of time, energy and resourcecs it takes to manage this web site.
Numerous groups have called for boycotts of Johnson & Johnson products for a variety of reasons. In addition, as more mothers in the United States are educated regarding known carcinogens in the U.S. formulation of baby soap, shampoo, powder, lotions, creams and other baby products as well as the same carcinogens in adult care products, it is obvious that the sales of J&J toxic consumer products are suffering as consumers choose less toxic products.

With yet another recall of Children's Tylenol and yet another undisclosed carcinogen found in yet another baby care product, I don't see Johnson & Johnson consumer sales rebounding any time soon. I don't know, maybe people don't want to risk using products on their children that might harm their precious babies. As people like me continue sharing the risks as fast as we can with other moms so they don't use toxic products, I think sales will likely continue to drop.
Something to consider: As fewer people use toxic products from Johnson & Johnson, the rate of long-term illnesses, such as asthma, allergies, chronic sinus infections, COPD, cancer, low fertility, and such, caused by these products (and the drugs prescribed to deal with side effects of the drugs prescribed) will begin to decline - cutting into Johnson & Johnson medical devices and pharmaceuticals sales ;o)
