Baby Powder is Big Business for Johnson & Johnson
Black Women Were Targeted Aggressively
Shower To Shower ads in the late 80s promised “just a sprinkle a day keeps odor away.”
Jacqueline Fox was diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer
“I was raised up on it,” she later said in a deposition. “They was to help you stay fresh and clean.?…?We ladies have to take care of ourselves.”
Her son notably said, “It has to be safe. It’s put on babies. It’s been around forever. Why haven’t we heard about any ill effects?”
Fox passed away from the cancer in 2015. In February of this year, a St. Louis court ruled that Johnson & Johnson must pay $72 million to Fox’s family as the corporation was liable for gross negligence for failing to warn consumers of the cancer-causing products.
Women are currently suing Johnson & Johnson for ovarian cancer diagnosis from their talc-based products.
