Johnson & Johnson to Stop Selling Talc-Based Baby Powder in US & Canada

FAIRLESS HILLS, Pa. (AP) — Johnson & Johnson is ending sales of its iconic talc-based Johnson’s Baby Powder in the U.S. and Canada, where demand has dwindled amid thousands of lawsuits claiming it has caused cancer.

Although, the world’s biggest maker of health care products said Tuesday the talc-based powder will still be sold outside the U.S. and Canada.

J&J faces about 19,400 cases alleging its talcum powder caused users to develop ovarian cancer and so far have had 12 wins, 15 losses and seven mistrials.

According to Black America Web, “All of the losses have either been overturned on appeal or are still being appealed.” Johnson and Johnson has always maintained that their talc baby powder is safe and doesn’t cause cancer.

Ida Keeling is unstoppable. Period. Even now, as she turns 105, I don’t even think the great, great, great grandmother could stop if she wanted to. (source: blackdoctor.org)

BlackDoctory.org reports that in 2011, at 95 years old, Keeling set the world record in her age group for running 60 meters at 29.86 seconds. In 2014 at 99 set the world record for the 100-meter dash at 59.80 seconds. Then in 2016, just before her 101st birthday, she set the world record for the number of push-ups in her age bracket and broke her own world record in the 100-meter dash. She also became another world record sprinter at the age of 103!
