You gotta love it when arrogant science devotees defiantly claim they alone have a monopoly on the “settled facts” of our reality. Throughout much of the 20th century, it turns out, these same sort of arrogant scientists claimed smoking was awesome for your health, too.

“More doctors smoke Camels than any other cigarette” was the headline of a full-page ad carried by the Journal of the American Medical Association. Doctors were paid by Big Tobacco to tout the amazing health benefits of smoking cigarettes, and any doctor who dared point out that smoking might be linked to cancer was subjected to the same industry blackballing, scientific censorship and verbal abuse that’s leveled today against honest researchers questioning the safety of GMOs or mercury in vaccines.

The real truth is that science never has a monopoly on facts, and science makes enormous mistakes (such as condoning smoking cigarettes) on a regular basis. Science is also for sale and easy corrupted by corporate interests.

Peer-reviewed science journals, too, are often little more than a collection of corporate-funded make-believe science tabloids. “It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines,” writes the former editor of The New England Journal of Medicine, Marcia Angell.

“I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine,” she says in Drug Companies & Doctors: A Story of Corruption.

With that in mind, take a look at the similarities between Big Tobacco science lies and vaccine industry science lies:

Johnson & Johnson ordered to pay $110 million to woman who developed cancer from using their talc baby powder

Talc-containing powders have been used for decades for a variety of cosmetic purposes. You can find talc in baby powder, eye makeup and other products with relative ease, but is it really safe? Recently, a 62-year-old woman who had been using Johnson & Johnson products for roughly forty years developed cancer from the ingredient.

Lois Slemp, who resides in the state of Virginia, developed ovarian cancer from her near-daily use of Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder and their Shower To Shower product — both of which contain talc. Slemp was initially diagnosed in 2012, but her cancer has since returned and spread to her liver. Reports say that she is now being treated with chemotherapy.

Recently, a St. Louis court ruled in favor of Slemp, and awarded her a record-setting $110.5 million. The Missouri court concluded that Johnson & Johnson was 99 percent at fault, while their talc supplier, Imerys, was held just one percent of the blame.

In addition to the $4.5 million in compensatory damages, Johnson and Johnson has been ordered to pay an additional $105 million in punitive damages, while Imerys will pay out $50,000 to Ms. Slemp.

Sadly, Slemp is not the only person to be harmed by the company’s baby powder or other talc-containing products. Three other St. Louis juries have awarded a total of $197 million in damages to plaintiffs with similar complaints. Despite Johnson and Johnson’s claim to fame as “the world’s largest healthcare group,” lawyers say that the corporation failed to accurately warn consumers about the risks posed by the talc in their products. In fact, the company has faced thousands of lawsuits for allegedly ignoring studies that linked its baby powder and Shower To Shower products with ovarian cancer.

So far, at least 2,000 women have filed lawsuits over similar concerns about the ramifications of using Johnson & Johnson baby powder or other talc-containing products. Several other women have developed cancer as a result of using J&J’s baby powder or Shower To Shower. After years of using baby powder, Deborah Giannecchini from California was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2012 as well. She was recently awarded $70 million in damages.

In early 2016, the family of Jaqueline Fox was also awarded $72 million in damages after a jury concluded that her daily use of talc-containing powder contributed to her cancer and subsequent death. Fox had reportedly been using the product for approximately 50 years. Fox’s son, Marvin, stated that the company should have made consumers aware of the risk.

“It has to be safe. It’s put on babies. It’s been around forever. Why haven’t we heard about any ill effects? People were using something they thought was perfectly safe. And it isn’t. At least give people the choice. J & J didn’t give people a choice,” he reportedly commented.

In spite of the mounting lawsuits and consistently being found at fault, Johnson & Johnson has continued to maintain their innocence, and stated that they would be preparing to appeal and dispute the evidence. “We are preparing for additional trials this year and we continue to defend the safety of Johnson’s Baby Powder,” the company said.

Evidence has shown that talc can increase the risk of ovarian and endometrial cancers by about 30 percent. While some experts say that it’s just a “small increase for a rare cancer,” why take the risk? There are plenty of alternatives, which many manufacturers are turning to. Cornstarch, silk powder and finely milled oats are some options to be on the look out for when purchasing a talc-free powder.

Renowned skin care expert Dr. Trevor Cates lists 20 of the most toxic chemicals found in personal care products. “What we put on our skin should be as clean as what we eat. But for most people, it’s not. Even in tiny amounts, many of the chemicals commonly found in our cosmetics can have a tremendous health and hormonal impact, and we are only beginning to understand the consequences,” Dr. Cates writes in DailyMail.co.uk.

  1. Fragrances – According to Dr. Cates, fragrance mixtures may contain hundreds of individual chemicals that may trigger allergies and disrupt certain hormones. He suggests avoiding fragrances unless in their natural form such as pure essential oils.
  2. Formaldehyde – Nearly one in five personal care products contain this chemical. This toxic chemical can be found in hair care products, adhesives and nail products. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), formaldehyde is a carcinogenic chemical associated with the onset of various forms of cancer.
  3. Ethanolamines – According to the skin care expert, impurities in these chemicals may trigger the onset of certain types of cancer.
  4. Mineral oils – These oils, along with petroleum, are key ingredients in cosmetic products such as foundation, moisturizers and cleansers. However, these chemicals contain dioxane. According to Dr. Cates, dioxane is found to be carcinogenic in various animal studies.
  5. Oxybenzone – This harmful chemical is commonly found in lip balms, sunscreens, and other products that contain SPF. Oxybenzone is found to be easily absorbed in the bloodstream, and is associated with the onset of early puberty in girls.
  6. Parabens – Parabens are commonly used preservatives in various beauty products. The chemical is linked to breast cancer cell growth in women and lower testosterone levels and sperm count in men.
  7. Hydroquinone – According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), hydroquinones may cause ochronosis, a skin disease characterized by disfiguring and irreversible lesions on the skin. Hydroquinones are also found to be carcinogenic.
  8. Coal tar – Coal tar is a known carcinogenic. The chemical can be found in dandruff shampoos, creams, soap, and ointments.
  9. Toluene – According to Dr. Cates, toluene is a potent neurotoxic chemical and may trigger impaired breathing and nausea. Toluene is commonly found in nail care products.
  10. Butylated hydroxyanisole – BHA is a waxy compound that is used in various cosmetics and personal care products such as eye shadow and lipstick. The U.S. National Toxicology Program has identified BHA as a potential carcinogen, while the European Union (EU) classified the chemical as an endocrine disruptor.
  11. Triclosan and triclocarban – These chemicals are commonly used as antibacterial agents in personal care products. Both chemicals are known endocrine disruptors.
  12. Mica, silica, talc, and nanoparticled titanium dioxide – According to Dr. Cates, these minute particles may lead to lung disease when they accumulated in the body over time.
  13. Heavy metalsHeavy metals — such as mercury, lead, arsenic and aluminum —  can cause brain and nervous system impairment and hormone disruption. These heavy metals are also known carcinogens.
  14. Carbon black – Carbon black is a commonly used pigment in make up and nail polish. This chemical is known to cause cancers.
  15. P-phenylenediamine – This chemical is commonly found in hair dyes. Exposure to this chemical may lead to organ toxicity, adverse skin reactions, and cancer.

Other toxic chemicals commonly found in personal care products include resorcinol, methylisothiazolinone and teflon as well as phenoxyethanol and acrylamide.

“The personal care products industry is inundated with extremely toxic, cancer-causing chemicals,” explains the Health Ranger, founder of the Health Ranger Store which formulates and retails hundreds of non-toxic personal care products. “The average consumer poisons themselves with over 300 synthetic chemicals before they even leave the house each morning, and these chemicals are deliberately added to personal care products by manufacturers that care more about profit than consumer safety,” he adds.

Personal care products — such as cosmetics, body washes and hair and skin care products — have been subject to scrutiny for years due to potentially hazardous chemicals that most of them contain. These chemicals, when in contact with human body, may cause adverse health effects. In fact, a study by Herb Research Foundation reveals that the skin may absorb up to 60 percent of toxic chemicals found in personal care products.
