Get Johnson & Johnson cancer causing talc products off the shelves

There has been a lot of recent buzz around talc being a major concern with health. In particular, the links between talcum powder and ovarian/lung/uterine cancer are quite alarming! In fact, females who use talcum powder on their genital region, just once per week, are 40% more likely to develop ovarian cancer than someone who does not use talcum powder. HOW IS THIS STILL ON THE SHELVES?! That is my question... This is a product who's consumer target is babies! Can you believe this?! After speaking with Johnson & Johnson on 9/23/16 and listening to them tell me that they have no plans of taking their talc containing  products off the shelves, due to them being "government approved", I knew I had to do something - if for nothing else, to raise awareness!  Where I come in: My mother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at the young age of 34. She passed away just two months after her 38th birthday. She did not carry the BRCA 1 or BRCA 2 gene which is related to breast and ovarian cancer. So how does someone so young and healthy develop ovarian cancer at such a young age? The average age of developing this cancer is 65 years old, for those who are unaware. I truly believe with all my heart that this was caused by talc. She used Johnson & Johnson baby powder (talc) every day after she got out of the shower as part of her daily hygienic routine. Just like taking a shower or putting moisturizer on - she did this because it was "good for her skin" and "leaves her skin soft, dry and smelling good!" Little did she know she was putting poisons in her body on a daily basis. It's absolutely devastating knowing that we may have prevented her from getting ovarian cancer, dying and leaving behind two daughters and a grand daughter. THIS is why I am fighting- and I won't stop until these products are pulled -- Because I don't want any other person to lose a mother/sister/daughter/wife to such a nasty, potentially preventable disease.  Please, in the name of my mother, Jana Yeager, sign this petition!

PUT SLAVERY OUT OF BUSINESS!

Before your mobile phone arrived in your neighborhood store, it was possibly in dozens of other countries. Its parts came from every corner of the globe, different suppliers and scores of workers. Nearly everything we own follows a similar, complex path known as globalisation. When closely monitored, globalisation has the potential to bring millions out of poverty. But when left unchecked, it can fuel the ugliest trade known to man – modern slavery. Modern slavery is the human crisis of our time; 20.9 million people are currently living in conditions of slavery. The majority are in a forced labour situation, working under threat of violence, abuse and harsh penalties. Without consistent supply chain monitoring by companies, many suppliers are exploiting the system - and people - to turn a profit. Corporate Giants drive globalisation and have the power to stop forced labour in supply chains, dealing a swift blow to the slavery industry. Worth a combined $5 trillion USD, these companies have always been at the forefront of innovation, shaping our lives with new technologies and medical breakthroughs. Ask Corporate Giants to make ending modern slavery their next major innovation and urge them to sign the Zero Tolerance for Slavery Pledge.

save their lives, stop animal testing on medicine!

Animals shouldn't be treated this way to satisfy our results, they're vulnerable, unprotected under the needles. There's are so many alternative ways of testing medical products, they're more accurate, affordable and environmental friendly such as vitro methods. We believe animals are not born to be tested in laboratories with unknown disease they already had. Let's make a change not only for the animals but US! Save more lives.

Stop Johnson and Johnson from testing on animals

I want to stop animal testing because I am not okay with the inhumane treatment of animals when there are much safer and more humane methods for this. I believe that animals actually do have feelings and I have proof. First, a group of highly esteemed scientists has recently signed a document saying that animals do have feelings. Second, Scientists do have ample, detailed, empirical facts to declare that nonhuman animals are sentient beings and with each study, there are fewer and fewer skeptics. Last of all, the Cambridge Declaration on Consciousness in Non-Human Animals was publicly proclaimed in Cambridge, UK, on July 7, 2012, at the conclusion of the Conference, at Churchill College, University of Cambridge, by Philip Low, David Edelman and Christof Koch. … The Declaration was signed by the conference participants that very evening, in the presence of Stephen Hawking, in the Balfour Room at the Hotel du Vin in Cambridge, UK. The signing ceremony was memorialized by CBS 60 Minutes.Nearly fifty alternatives to animal testing have been made including the following:The 3T3 Neutral Red Uptake Phototoxicity Test can replace the use of mice and other animals in the testing of medicines and other products for their potential to cause sunlight induced "photo-toxicity.Regulatory agencies in the United States and in Europe recently approved another sort of replacement test. This involves the use of a "synthetic skin”, called Corrositex, which can be used in place of animals to test chemicals for skin corrositivity. There are also benefits to non-animal testing:Animal testing actually is not very reliable because animals have such different bodies than we do. Almost 40% of all animal tests actually come up wrong.Cruelty-free products are much more cost effective, more expedient, and much better for the environment.

Remove petroleum-based FD&C colors from all children's antibiotics, ADHD medications, allergy medications, cold remedies, pain relievers, vitamins, and toothpastes.

WHY do ADHD medications contain FD&C dyes that, according to the FDA, exacerbate ADHD symptoms? More American parents are demanding higher quality and affordable foods, medicines, and healthcare for their children. Mothers, in particular, control most household budgets, and our decisions make a major impact on food and medication sales around the world. As a mother of a dye-sensitive child, I'd like to see the major players in this scenario improve upon a few of the greatest health discoveries of modern times: I am challenging all American pharmaceutical companies and manufacturers to remove petroleum-based FD&C colors and flavors from all children's antibiotics, ADHD medications, allergy medications, cold remedies, pain relievers, vitamins, and toothpastes. "FD&C" (food, drug, and cosmetic) colors add no medicinal or nutritional value to children's medications, vitamins, and toothpaste. They are added for aesthetic purposes only, or to lure young consumers to their brightly-colored bottles of vitamins emblazoned with cartoon characters. But the real problem with non-nutritive additives such as synthetic colors and flavors is that they are made from petroleum, and are linked with a long list of health and behavioral problems in children. Synthetic food colorings such as Red 40, Red 3, Yellow 5, Yellow 6, Blue 1, Blue 2, and Green 3 have been linked to cancer, behavioral disorders, hives, eczema, asthma, mood swings, bed-wetting, aggression, sleep disturbances, migraines, nausea, vomiting, lowered zinc levels, ADHD, hyperactivity, learning problems, and reproductive problems. Some children's toothpastes also contain D&C dyes such as Red 28 and Red 33 that are NOT approved for use in food, but are still absorbed through children's tongue and gums DAILY. Red 3, found in drugs and candy, was partially banned by the FDA at one time for being a known carcinogen, but is now approved again for use in food and drugs. Incidentally, it's also listed as an insecticide.  Imagine your child has a painful ear infection or pneumonia, or they need surgery, and the only antibiotics and pain relief available contain red or yellow dyes. Pink liquid antibiotics, red allergy tablets, and purple cough medicines are the standard offerings in the U.S. Even "off-white" capsules contain yellow dyes, which are contaminated with carcinogens. Synthetic flavorings are also petroleum-based and cause similar reactions to dyes, but are sometimes not even listed in the ingredients. Unfortunately, families with sick kids cannot simply reach for an alternative brand of antibiotics, like they can with macaroni and cheese or candies. Nor can they whip up their own recipe at home.  Pharmacies are limited in their ability to find dye-free medications such as amoxicillin, azithromycin, Tylenol, Zyrtec, Benadryl, and ADHD medications. Families whose children are severely reactive to synthetic colors must either pay up to ten times as much to have their antibiotic prescriptions filled without dyes at a compounding pharmacy, or opt for traditional medications out of desperation - and watch their child suffer with horrific and painful side effects for up to two weeks. Some children's medications are needed daily, like allergy tablets. But most children's medications are needed sporadically, as with fever or infections. However, the ADHD medications, gummy vitamins and toothpastes that our children are exposed to daily are no better for them than the petroleum-tainted antibiotics and cold medicines. In fact, synthetically-dyed and flavored vitamins are hardly better for children than candy in some respects. Children's vitamins and toothpastes contain sugars, synthetic petroleum-based dyes, synthetic petroleum-based flavorings, and synthetic preservatives.We may not let our children indulge in candy daily, but vitamins and brushing teeth are a different matter. The FDA has no idea what this type of daily exposure to dyes will do to a child over a lifetime. And the few dye-free alternative vitamins on the market are so expensive that most American families cannot afford them. The excuse of higher cost for substituting with natural dyes is even weaker when it comes to pharmaceuticals, compared with food manufacturers...Pharmaceutical companies need only to leave the antibiotics and ADHD medications an unadulterated white (no blue dye for brightness or yellow dye for creaminess, please).  Even for vitamins, clear liquids and white tablets or powders that can be mixed into a favorite beverage are more cost effective than synthetically dyed versions.  And of course, white toothpaste works just as well as blue sparkled paste.  If you need to differentiate the various doses, use an indented or dobossed code, as is already in popular use. We demand an affordable dye-free choice from pharmaceutical companies. We can make our own dye-free electrolyte drinks and comfort foods when our little ones are sick. But we can't make our own dye-free life-saving antibiotics and allergy medications.  And certainly not ADHD medications! For some kids like Rylie, two weeks seems like a short time to suffer the effects of dyed medications. Read her mother's heart-wrenching story of how they solved the mystery of her ongoing neurological and health problems by ditching the dyes.  See my list of Scientific Research On Food Dyes for studies dating from recent years all the way back to the 1970s.  In that list you will find a comprehensive collection of studies performed on each FDA-certified synthetic food color, published by the Center For Science In The Public Interest. I envision a day when the cure is better than the disease. A day when parents don't have to choose between cheap yet agonizing convenience, or budget-busting peace of mind.  You have a choice, Big Pharma:  Either #DitchTheDyes or lose your market share as more families demand dye-free healthcare!

Boycott companies "Boycotting" YouTube's advertisment program

We vow to boycott the purchasing of any products from any company boycotting YouTube's Adsense program on supposed "moral" grounds.  This will take effect immediately until your YouTube ad revenue is turned on.  We also request a statement from your company expressing allegiance to the spirit of our Bill of Rights and Constitution specifically the 1st Amendment.  And an acknowledgement that like every citizen of this great country your company has a SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY to honor the 1st Amendment and Bill of Rights. Simply stated we believe that this move to "demonetize" content creators is thinly veiled CENSORSHIP.  As your companies "supposed moral stance" on "racist rhetoric" or "violent content" is not reflected in "mainstream media advertising" where countless movies, television shows, news casts, music etc display images, concepts, acts and verbiage dealing in racism, sexism, materialism, greed,  violence, profane language, explicit sex acts, innuendos of pedophilia, endorsements of war and countless other hideous, insidious, profane and immoral acts. Furthermore the companies mentioned have histories of engaging in scandals and illegal activities themselves.  HSBC for example laundering money for drug cartels and terrorists groups.  GSK China bribery scandal.  AT&T spying scandal and the 100 million dollar fine it paid for "misleading consumers"  These are but a few examples in a LONG LIST OF CORRUPT AND IMMORAL activities engaged in by said companies.    The hypocrisy is palpable. The timing questionable.  The and the end result is an ANTI AMERICAN, anti freedom, anti free market, anti human result.  We see this as nothing more then "globalist, fascist" power grab.  With the intention of quashing the ever growing independent media and entertainment complex.  As you companies political, social and economic interests lie in the preservation of the "Corporate Media Establishment" aka "State sponsored media" We request that the following companies reinstate their Revenues to Youtube in order to lift out "peoples boycott" on your products.  Simple steps can be taken in order to reduce ads being displayed next to "unethical" content.  This does not have to include punishing whole segments of the YouTube community and CENSORING unpopular opinions.  ArgosAudiAvivaHavas Group UK froze all of its spend.

Johnson and Johnson Depuy Charité disc failure.

The Johnson and Johnson Charité disc has has been implanted in many people and failed. I am one of them I had it implanted in 2006 and then had to have a revision surgery a year and a half ago. I am in pain all the time and now to the point I can't function. I had spinal stimulater implanted three days ago and it is making me hurt worse where the charite disc and cage are. I have leg pain and I have to use a cain. I am only 35 years old, I should be able to run and play with my children. J@J states that there is not an issue with their product, but they have taken it off the market. Like me many have missed out on their children's lives, not able to function properly, lost jobs, and lost everything they have owned. We just want our lives back and to be treated the way we deserve. Please email I need all the help I can get. ComplaintUnit@synthes.com
