The FDA's Objective Oversight of the Johnson & Johnson Does Not Pass the Smell Test

The FDA's man in charge of monitoring the cosmetics industry and the talc/asbestos testing methods the industry adopted was a former Johnson & Johnson employee

Monday, December 9, 2019 - How objective can a person be when it comes to testing talc for the presence of asbestos, if the person put in charge of the investigation once worked for the company whose products are being investigated? The answer is corporate connections as well as possibly receiving a company pension could taint the overseer's objectivity in reporting negative findings. That seems to be the implication of the most recent article in Reuters titled: "FDA bowed to industry for decades as alarms were sounded over talc." The person doing the "bowing" for the FDA was Heinz J. Eiermann, a former J&J researcher who at the time ran the agency's (FDA) cosmetics division. "Assured by J&J and other manufacturers that their talc was safe, the FDA eventually ended its inquiry (into finding asbestos in talc) without taking action because "the potential hazard did not warrant a recall," Heinz J. Eiermann, a former J&J researcher who at the time ran the agency's cosmetics division, wrote in a March 1976 memo (revealed in court proceedings)," according to Reuters. As a result, Johnson & Johnson and other cosmetics companies were allowed to self-regulate going forward and to adopt a method of testing of asbestos that "cannot detect most types of asbestos at low levels, nor one common type chrysotile-at all." Talcum powder cancer lawsuits are represented by top national attorneys and offer a free consultation with no obligation to file a claim.

The inert organic mineral chrysotile is at the center of the controversy over whether or not Johnson's Baby Powder talc contains asbestos as is the definition of what is or what is not asbestos. Reuters tells us that asbestos is a term that included six different needles and fibers that cause mesothelioma when inhaled and ovarian cancer when they travel into the vagina and ovaries when Johnson's Baby Powder is used for the feminine hygiene. A high percentage of the 15,000 or so pending Johnson's Baby Powder cancer trials claim that chrysotile itself caused the inflation and irritation that lead to developing cancer over the decades. This makes sense as 22 out of 22 recent ovarian cancer patients biopsied found particles of talc embedded in the cancerous section of the ovaries. The FDA began investigating chrysotile in talc back in 1971 and found asbestos in several Johnson & Johnson cosmetic products. "FDA records show, the agency found asbestos in a sample of Shower to Shower, a J&J powder at the time that was made with the same talc as Johnson's Baby Powder. The FDA never publicly announced the finding," Reuters uncovered. Chrysotile asbestos fibers are not some kind of toxic hybrid chemical. They are simply microscopic needles that are razor sharp causing microscopic lacerations in ovarian and lung tissue . The body naturally heals itself with scar tissues which are inelastic and results in scar tissue accumulating over time making breathing impossible and causing its victims to suffocate to death.
