    You are missing the whole word in the product name that's most shocking: "BABY" How many babies are damaged world wide? You keep focusing on women. It's shocking since this was literally not marketed to women, but to BABIES. Is this the pro-life conservative member of WHO we've come to know in the pandemic? I think so!

    How about the people in Africa, my mum used it on all of us as babies, my big sister has had complications now coz she's 45, will ask her to do test but who will compensate her us in Zambia? Only Americans are compensated how about Africans

    My husband left me for another after woman 1 yr month of marriage, i was heart broken , didn't even have anything to care for our little ones and that's why i will never wish any woman to face the torture and humiliations i faced three months back when my husband treated me like a maid,fool, and just like house wife, he never showed me any drop of love apart from insulting me in his friends' presence .I remember one night my best friend called and informed me how my husband was in a bar spending lots of money on alcohol with his new girl friend. On that same day he gave an engagement Ring to her because it was her birthday.I cried and wanted to leave him that day but didn't want to lose him because i loved him so much and besides he meant everything to me since we were in a foreign country and he was the only one i knew and trusted. he never allowed me to go anywhere or make friends so he was all i had.He came back in the morning and called me all sorts of names with insults and ordered me to leave his house.He could always leave me in the house alone with the kids, sometimes with no food and went out to have fan with his girl friend. I was just like a maid to him the only difference i wasn't paid. Was very unhappy with him until my best friend connected me to Mama ANNA who casted a very strong spell on him and after 16 hours of casting the spell my husband apologized for all the pain he caused to me and broke up with the stupid girlfriend who could only advise him to go to bars/parks and drink. Am really grateful and indeed my story is worth sharing such that someone out there can also get a chance to be helped in any way possible. Neither did i believe that there were some spell casters that are really strong like MAMA you can call/WhatsApp her +27782391426. on Since then am very happy

    How evil do you have to be to knowingly sell a product you know has cancerous ingredients like talc? Johnson and Johnson should be exposed widely as the personification of evil. Only DemocracyNow is talking about this story, haven’t heard it anywhere else. And I suspect that’s because they have all the lobbyists to sweep their dirt under the rug. It’s incredibly maddening their racist strategy to target black women in lower socioeconomic conditions. And then they want to spread it to Africa and Asia. I will never use a Johnson and Johnson product, don’t care that they never do this again. They are not a company to be trusted and they should completely collapse. They are the DuPont of baby products but unlike DuPont, they’re also racist white supremacists who target black communities. They deserve every lawsuit they get!

    My black grandmother and black aunts used this. I even used it when I was younger because my family used it.

    Im in Australia and my mother used this talc on my brother and I and I also used it on my two sons. as did my sons. So thats 4 generations of people used this stuff. My mother died of cancer nearly 10 years ago. We were never told that any J&J products were unsafe and still now not much has been said about it.

    Does this mean that there is still asbestos in the powder?
    In the UK it's called baby powder and we're encouraged to use it on young children's nappies ( diapers)
    Johnson&Johnson , DuPont , Mosantos all profit from deadly products in your home , WTF?

    10:22 — This is just outrageous — that they are allowed to deplete their remaining carcinogenic inventory — yet another metric of how the right-wing assault on environmental & product safety and regulations has made America a "shithole nation". That they continue to sell it in other territories is so immoral. But god bless the almighty dollar.

    I would venture to say that this type of heinous behavior would only happen in the United States. The fact that they are able to use up their inventory and the fact that they are able to still send it to other countries. This is capitalism at its worst. Ban J & J for manipulating peoples trust in their company. I seriously hope they go out of business and worse.

    2B isn't nothing compared to what they made off this product. They need to create a clear cut law if your company practice in harmful marketing and distribution of products your complete board will serve 25 years in prison because we all know this was premeditated marketing and distribution for increase products. Will this happen in America 🤔🤔🤔🤔 NOPE. Judges, DA, Cops, politicians, and so on are all in the same damn basket helping one another.

    This is a product that has been used for decades in many households around the world, including my own. Imagine all of the babies that have had this applied to them by their mothers! What an evil company. One of many, unfortunately.

    My husband is from Ghana. He uses these powder every day.
    He pays money and is harming himself.
    All his family uses it. All babies in the family are powdered from the first day on the planet.

    Asbestos.
    Using the powder, you breathe it to the lungs.
    Imagine new born's breathing in asbestos.

    Atleast in America people are suing this company. Meanwhile in developing countries like India they still market their products greatly even after some people have stated their products are toxic :/ neither the overall customers care to do something or say something nor does the government bother to regulate them.. in my opinion, the whole brand deserves to be removed off the face of the earth..
