Harmful Ingredients in Johnson & Johnson Products
HandelontheLaw.com Staff Writer
Since at least the 1980s, health advocates have known that Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder and “Shower to Shower” Powder contain possible carcinogens, particularly related to deadly ovarian cancer.
How can a regular person get Johnson & Johnson to move quickly and remove those toxic ingredients once and for all?
First, check the product label. The talc is the apparent culprit and traces of it are even found within ovarian tumors.
Second, look for the USDA Organic Seal.
Third, buy products that are fragrance-free.
Fourth, buy from Earth-sustaining, animal-friendly companies.
Fifth, don’t buy Johnson & Johnson products until it makes safer products. Nothing communicates like not buying and the effect on Johnson & Johnson’s “bottom line” should hasten the removal of harmful ingredients from its products.
Sixth, let Johnson & Johnson know you want the ingredients removed.
Seventh, contact your Congressman and let him/her know you want unsafe ingredients removed from products.
Eighth, if you or a loved one developed ovarian cancer after using talcum powder, run a Google search for attorneys handling such cases. There are plenty of them on the web and many if not all of them give free consultations.
