This is INDEPENDENT work that you are certainly NOT going to see in conventional media.
To all readers: PLEASE HELP KEEP OVER FIVE YEARS OF WORK ONLINE...
To maintain independence, I will never run ads. I'm only ONE homeless woman, trying to do all the research, content development and web site maintenance for damn near nothing - or get this: I wouldn't still be homeless after doing all this for almost six years. I don't have the time to stop doing the WORK involved to piss away my time running bullshit ads for crap you don't need anyway.
Only 1 out every 5,000 visitors sends even a little help. If everyone reading this gave $10, I could get off the streets and be able to do more. The price of a cheap meal from a bunch of people is all I need. When I started JohnsonAndToxin, people told me it would never get me off the streets. Almost 6 years later, I'm still on the streets. Most people ignore my requests for help. But I hope you’ll think about how important it is to have someone pushing all this information to the Senate, State Attorneys General, State Governors, US FDA, JNJ shareholders, educational facilities, etc.
Please help keep JohnsonAndToxin online and me working to expose Johnson & Johnson and their 275+ subsidiaries for the benefit of every man, woman and child on the planet - and that INCLUDES YOU.
Here we go again - more of our tax dollars thrown at a company that is already ripping us off.

This is absurd:
Johnson & Johnson : gets £100m from Europe's IMI to accelerate Ebola vaccine development
Crucell, a subsidiary of Janssen which is a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, was given $8 million for fiscal year 2014 by United States National Institutes of Health for 'Research and Development'.
Hey, wait, I keep seeing that Johnson & Johnson CEO Alex Gorsky claims the high costs of drugs is related to the high cost of development. Um, looks like our tax dollars are covering the development part so what, exactly, is Gorsky talking about?
Oh, likely exercising that exclusive Johnson & Johnson Constituational Right to Lie, or at least be deceptive. Yes, research and development does cost a lot of money. Totally agreed. But that's not what is driving up the cost of drugs since research and development is mostly paid for by taxpayers and individuals. In addition to raping the public health system for development money, tons of money is constantly pouring in from thousands of disease awareness groups such as breast cancer, asthma, arthritis, and so on.
As of September, 2014, Johnson & Johnson had in excess of $33 BILLION in cash and short-term investments. Does anyone else think there is something wrong with giving hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to a corporation with more than $33 BILLION while taxpayers are struggling to pay their mortgages and fuel bills? The high cost of healthcare is simple: Greed.
This isn't 'Corporate Welfare' or 'Subsidy' - this is blatant, out of control greed. However, as more Americans lose their homes to foreclosure and everything else in bankruptcy due to the high cost of healthcare eating up an ever-increasing portion of their paycheck they can no longer pay on bank debts, the banks will continue to sink since the loss of revenue from consumer bankruptcies and foreclosures will likely outpace the revenue gained in dividends from healthcare companies such as Johnson & Johnson.
Gee, wonder what's going to happen when investment bank executives realize the bleeding hole of bankruptcies and foreclosures are caused by corruption causing the astronomical rise in healthcare costs?
