A Must Read for Anyone who STILL Buys any Johnson & Johnson Products
January 27, 2015
Over a year ago when I was just starting the website I met an amazing woman by the name of Maria Bradshaw who lost her son to antidepressant suicide. How I came to meet her was when I was researching Johnson & Johnson and came across the amazing piece she wrote last year for Mad In America No More Tears? The Shame of Johnson & Johnson.
Maria not only inspired me by the detailed piece she wrote outlining the long hisotry of unethical behavior by Johnson & Johnson but by turning her personal pain into a platform for education and change. Maria is one of the many people I know one day I will meet to thank in person for all that she’s done for me (an internet stranger) and what she continues to do for others on the mental health front. I also hope that all the mesh and hip victims can find strength and inspiration in Maria, just as I have. Please support Maria and CASPER (Community Action on Suicide Prevention Education & Research) the organization she created in memory of her son.
Highlighted below in an excerpt from No More Tears? The Shame of Johnson & Johnson and also demonstrates the patterns we’ve come to know from The Sociopathic Business Model™:
In 1972, prisoners at Holmesburg Prison in Philadelphia were paid $3 to have their eyes held open with clamps and hooks while Johnson & Johnson’s baby shampoo was dropped into them. In 2011, mothers of newborns were arrested when their babies tested positive for exposure to cannabis, a false result caused by the use of Johnson & Johnson’s Head-to-Toe Foaming Baby Wash. Young men have undergone mastectomies to remove breasts grown as a result of Johnson & Johnson antipsychotics, which were used as a result of Johnson & Johnson’s criminal promotion of its drugs for off-label purposes.
And now, Johnson & Johnson has announced the removal of carcinogenic chemicals from their No More Tears baby shampoo.
It’s hard to reconcile such betrayals with the company’s credo, formulated in 1943 and promoted as guiding the company’s ethics; “Caring for the world, one person at a time.” Who knew that Johnson & Johnson’s claims that their baby shampoo is as gentle to the eyes as pure water rests on their abuse of prisoners attempting to earn money to pay bail, or send home to their wives and children? I certainly didn’t when I used these products on my son, nor did I know that they contained formaldehyde, the chemical used to embalm his body after his death due to the use of pharmaceutical drugs. My sister who bathed her babies with Johnson & Johnson products and who died three years ago from Leukemia had no idea that the baby shampoo she used contained dioxane, known in California and by the U.S. EPA as a “probable carcinogen” that can cause “hepatic and renal lesions, and demyelination and edema of the brain.”
