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.
Johnson & Johnson claims that charges of false and deceptive advertising, well, telling lies to doctors and patients about the safety and effectiveness of their products is covered under Freedom of Speech. Oh, really?

The Johnson & Johnson defense lawyers tried to claim that false and deceptive advertising, downplaying and omitting risks, in other words, lying to the FDA, doctors, patients and insurance providers, is covered under Freedom of Speech. Oh, really? Oh, and to CEO Alex Gorsky: Exactly how does lying to the FDA, doctors and patients meet the standards set forth in Johnson & Johnson's Credo? Hmph.
As expected, Johnson & Johnson with Janssen, have filed an appeal with the Arkansas Attorney General. The Arkansas Attorney General has responded to the appeal with support from the other 35 states that have taken Johnson & Johnson to court regarding Risperdal and Medicaid fraud. The response is, uh, no, you may not appeal with the defense that lying to the FDA, doctors, patients and insurance providers (such as Medicaid) is Constitutionally Protected speech.
The Manufacturing.net quoted Arkansas Attorney General, Dustin McDaniel, from his submitted brief , "If accepted, it would effectively immunize false advertising and false labeling of drug products from regulation."
Janssen representatives keep blabbing over and over that the product was safe (which it wasn't, count the payoffs, I mean settlements) and they followed all the rules of the FDA with regard to the marketing material. Okay, this is coming from a company that feels that lying is a Constitutionally protected Right?
Here is the Dear Doctor letter and the list of FDA Violations, as reported to J&J by the FDA. All neatly, and honestly, hosted on the FDA web site. See the documentation for yourself, it's quite clear that J&J violated FDA disclosure requirements.
