In the latest development in the Johnson & Johnson talcum powder saga, a St. Louis jury has awarded a California woman over $70 million dollars as a result of her lawsuit claiming that years of using Johnson & Johnson’s caused her to be stricken by cancer. The trial began on September 26th and ended on October 27th.
The plaintiff, Deborah Giannecchini of Medesto California was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2012. The lawsuit accused Johnson & Johnson of negligent conduct in the manufacture and marketing of its product.
Giannecchini’s lawyer told the Associated Press, “We are pleased the jury did the right thing. They once again reaffirmed the need for Johnson & Johnson to warn the public of the ovarian cancer risk associated with its product.”
The corporation is planning to appeal the decision, however, as Carol Goodrich, Johnson & Johnson spokesperson said, “We will appeal today’s verdict because we are guided by the science, which supports the safety of Johnson’s baby powder.”
Earlier in 2016 saw two other lawsuits in St. Louis filed against Johnson & Johnson which ended in jury verdicts awarding the plaintiffs a $127 million dollars combined. Two other lawsuits in New Jersey, however, were thrown out by a judge after he claimed that there was insufficient evidence that talc leads to ovarian cancer. Around 2,000 other women have filed similar lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson and lawyers are currently reviewing thousands of other cases that have the potential to turn into lawsuits.
In February of 2016, the family of a woman who died of ovarian cancer was awarded $72 million dollars. In May, a South Dakota ovarian cancer survivor was awarded $55 million. Evidence showing that talcum powder can be linked to ovarian cancer goes as far back as the 1970s. If there is a clear link between Johnson & Johnson’s product and the disease, the sheer magnitude of suffering and death caused by one product of one corporation is scarcely imaginable.

(ANTIMEDIA Op-Ed) Mandatory vaccinations are about to open up a new frontier for government control. Through the war on drugs, bureaucrats arbitrarily dictate what people can and can’t put into their bodies, but that violation pales in comparison to forcibly medicating millions against their will. Voluntary and informed consent are essential in securing individual rights, and without it, self-ownership will never be respected.
The liberal stronghold of California is trailblazing the encroaching new practice and recently passed laws mandating that children and adults must have certain immunizations before being able to attend schools or work in certain professions. The longstanding religious and philosophical exemptions that protect freedom of choice have been systematically crushed by the state.
Former Ambassador Andrew Young Calls for End to Water Fluoridation, “Civil Rights Issue”
Anti-fluoridation activists in Georgia received a major boost of support when former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations under Jimmy Carter, Andrew Young, sent a letter to Georgia Governor Nathan Deal and House Speaker David Ralston demanding hearings to investigate why water fluoridation is being continued in the state despite all the reasons to end it.
Crazy Jerry Brown Of California Is Going To Criminalize Adults Who Refuse Vaccinations-The State Is The 8th Largest GNP And A Major Agricultural Hub-Taking It Down Is Crucial To Agenda 21
Headlines recently blared that Governor Brown = “Corporate Fascist”
From the looks of crazy Jerry’s nose you have to wonder if he was in a Texas style steel cage, taped fist fight to the finish with John “lurch” Kerry.
I don’t think there is any doubt that disassembling California is integral to agenda 21. They want people to leave there. You know when the water table is poisoned due to fracking, you have to leave.
