The link between Johnson & Johnson’s talcum powder and ovarian cancer dates back as early as 1971, when a study of ovarian cancer patients revealed talc particles in their ovarian tissues. Yet Johnson & Johnson and talc mining companies have argued against these findings and managed to keep their dangerous product on the shelves for 40 more years without restriction or warnings of any kind. Golomb & Honik
A Buycott Campaign which had 2,380 members and highlighted that Johnson & Johnson’s talcum Baby Powder was responsible for causing cancer and the company knowingly & willfully knew this information via “misrepresentations and ommissions” is certainly inconsistent & contradictory language to action and even more so for a watchdog company like Buycott to remove a campaign that hightlights such corporate misconduct. The campaign was designed not only to warn others about the dangers of the Baby Powder but also show a pathological history of unethical and illegal behavior on the part of Johnson & Johnson which is expected but not only disappointing on the part of Buycott it’s unethical.
Please do not let unethical companies rewrite history at patient, consumer, employee and taxpayer expense. If you disagee with Buycott’s decision please let them know and if you disagree with the actions of Johnson & Johnson please join the other campaigns that expose the negative truth they’d rather remain hidden. Remember our purchases have power and when a company’s image is hurt by their own negative truth it impacts profits and in turn can create positve change.
