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.

    Aug 14, 2015 At Eli Lilly Headquarters: Marketing Big Pharma Profits at Risk to the Public

    We visit the headquarters of Eli Lilly in downtown Indianapolis where the power of Big Pharma has carved out Indiana’s political landscape, supplied its lobbyists and operatives, and created an empire of profits by (reportedly) treating the symptoms, hiding the risk and harm, and insisting on the safety of products – like Thimerosal and Prozac – without sufficient testing, and even less regard for the lives affected.

    J&J know that once they appeal and get beyond the jury system to trial by judiciary decision they will win this legal battle. The fix is in with all matters as it pertains to the corportocracy. From elections to corporate rights deals like the TPP and coming TISA, to baby powder the fix is in.

    Hey Brandon,

    Nice to see your post raising awareness among your readers about the dangers of trusting brands and products blindly.

    Even when we came across this news, we were quite shocked and over whelmed that a corporation like J&J was allowed to harm so many of their consumers, including small children and their trusting mothers. So, we did a little bit of fact finding for ourselves and came across many articles published in good journals trying to find out the link between ovarian cancer and talcum powders.

    We have summarised our researched in this post on our blog and we are pretty sure that you will find our results eye opening. Do visit our blog post and let us know your comments there!
