jury in St. Louis has ordered pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson to pay damages of $72 million to the family of a woman dead from ovarian cancer following her prolonged use of their personal care products containing talcum powder.

This class-action suit is one of two filed in 2014, both of which claimed the use of J&J’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower products were responsible for giving women ovarian cancer.

The action came just a year after a South Dakota woman’s claim that J&J was negligent because it failed to issue a warning of the dangers of these products during the 30 years she used them. She was also diagnosed with ovarian cancer. The suits highlight J&J’s failure to act responsibly in warning its customers about the inherent danger of products containing talcum powder.

The verdict brings the first award by a U.S. jury from the claims against these consumer products. Twelve hundred more cases have already been filed, and many more will likely follow, alleging that the company kept silent about information revealing that talc-based products could ignite cancer, in an effort to safeguard their bottom line.

As recently as October of 2015, Monsanto stated that it planned to double its sales in Mexico. The biotech giant already made around $400 million in the country in 2015. This greed to conquer the Mexican maize market has caused the company to fight resistance and GMO corn bans initiated by citizens and government, though the company continues to put 59 unique, indigenous varieties of corn at risk. [1]

The world’s largest seed producer (largely achieved through lies, deceit, and monopolizing trade agreements with bought-out governments), Monsanto still awaits a final ruling on a GMO corn ban that was overturned by a Mexican judge in September of last year. A final decision is expected to end up in Mexico’s Supreme Court.

The XII District Court overturned a 2013 ruling that prevented biotech companies, including Monsanto and Syngenta, from planting genetically modified (GM) maize in Mexico, but Monsanto may still have its way. Another judge upheld the ban in the appeals process, but Monsanto isn’t done. The company has already made 100 appeals to the court to reverse the ban.

Why is the biotech company so yearning to get into Mexico? The corp claims it is to end farmer poverty, but likely it is nothing more than an attempt to monopolize the food system, as has been done in multiple other countries.
