Johnson & Johnson Cancer Suit

Many years ago I became aware of what chemicals we're in the baby shampoo I was using on my oldest daughter and it appalled me. Since then I've been more aware and cautious when shopping for the products we use in our home.

 On Monday February 22nd, 2016...
 
...a Missouri jury has awarded $72 million to the family of an Alabama woman who died from ovarian cancer, which she said was caused by using Johnson & Johnson's well-known baby powder and other products containing talcum. {Read the full article HERE}.

There have been dozens of cases against Johnson & Johnson over the past few years just like this one. Including one started in May of 2009, as a coalition of groups called the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics began pushing Johnson & Johnson to eliminate questionable ingredients from its baby and adult personal care products. After three years of petitions, negative publicity and a boycott threat, the company agreed in 2012 to eliminate the ingredients 1,4-dioxane and formaldehyde, both considered probable human carcinogens, from all products by 2015.

The ever growing number of lawsuits against the company reminds me that we do have choices of where we shop and what we use in our homes and on our families. 

We as consumers can make a huge impact as we make wiser, more educated choices.
