The magical touch of a mother, the gentle skin of the baby and a talcum powder- my dear friends; the life is far beyond the ground reality of this dramatic melodrama.
It was on 22nd February, when the state of Missouri ordered the grand health giant Johnson & Johnson to pay a whopping amount of $72 million owing to the damage done to a woman from Alabama. Jacqueline Fox, a 62 year old resident of Alabama, died due to the ovarian cancer and it was alleged that she developed the disease due to the use of Johnson & Johnson baby powder. The company has accepted the term to pay an amount of $10 million to Jacqueline’s family as compensation.
Where is the world heading?
In the year 1999, the American Cancer Society supposedly raised concern about the potential dangers and ill effects of Talcum powder. However, the mad frenzy to boost business sales and profit took over the obvious social cause. Deemed as one among the best or world largest health product manufacturer, Johnson & Johnson has indeed shocked the world after this revelation. The business brand is currently facing about 1200 lawsuits in the US from different customers who has claimed the high risk factors in the product.
Though the controversy is still budding and nothing has been proven yet, still the credibility of the largest health product manufacturer is on stake.
