On this week’s edition of #PropagandaWatch we examine a case study in corporate spin as a thoroughly researched and meticulously documented Reuters report is marginalized with a magic two word phrase. Corporate stooges and PR lackeys take note!


Johnson & Johnson knew for decades that asbestos lurked in its Baby Powder

Everything Is Super Swell At Johnson & Johnson, Folks! (Just Don’t Mention The Baby Powder Cancer)

Johnson & Johnson Shares Plunge After Report It Knew of Asbestos in Baby Powder

Shut Up, Burglary Theorist!

Baby Powder Tainted By Asbestos, Johnson And Johnson Knew For Decades

Reuters’ Lisa Girion details her report on Johnson & Johnson baby powder

#MorningMonarchy: December 19, 2018


  1. I am pleasantly amazed that Reuters actually ran the article.
    My hat off to the journalist.

    I have long detested Johnsons and Johnsons baby powder because of its synthetic chemical perfumes and dust like nature. I think it is insane to sprinkle it on a baby. If you can smell it, it is going in your lungs (i.e. the very toxic synthetic chemical fragrances along with mineral talc particulates). Lung inhalation is a direct line to the blood stream, (as any pot smoker knows). Mineral particulates (whether talc or other types of minerals) in the lungs can cause all kinds of issues.
    Even J&J’s baby powder gives a warning “Keep powder away from baby’s face to avoid inhalation, which can cause breathing problems.”

    To me, it has always seemed like common sense NOT to sprinkle this dusty stuff on infants. My god! The baby is bound to breathe it. It is easily airborne.
    I just can’t get over how corporations can dupe the common sense out of people.
    I mean…look…Johnson and Johnson’s Baby Oil (mineral oil and fragrance). Mineral oil is typically a distillate of petroleum. Might as well just get some motor oil and put it on an infant.

    Corn Starch has long been used in the south by both guys and gals to help keep the private parts and feet dry, especially in the summer. It actually feels pretty good.

    “It’s a conspiracy theory”
    I think the media and corporations are starting to lose the impact of their denigration with the use of the supposed ‘insult’: “It’s a conspiracy theory”. Pretty soon, like on this Corbett Episode, the public will laugh at them for making such a silly statement.

    • Doesn’t the TeeVee J&J commercial have the kid rolled up in this stuff as if he’s going to get deep fried? People see the commercial a zillion times and read the instructions once or never. Guess what they’re going to do with it.

  2. Something strange about this. I was pretty sure asbestos only causes cancer from inhaling it. It’s not as if it is radioactive. I know this because I am a geologist that has worked in ore deposits that host asbestos bearing peridotites. I am very aware of the health risks associated with asbestos and have read a few journal articles on mesothelioma. I have not found a paper that links asbestos directly to ovarian cancer although I do find claims of it. If any of you do find a unbiased peer reviewed paper linking it to ovarian cancer please point me to it. It would be hard to prove ovarian cancer was caused from this but I don’t doubt it could cause ovarian cancer. Talc is pretty much asbestos accept it’s crystal habit is not in the fibrous form (chrysotile).

    • From the website that I posted above:
      “Once inhaled or swallowed, the fibers can become trapped in the respiratory or digestive tract. The body can get rid of some asbestos fibers, but many fibers become stuck. The stuck fibers slowly cause inflammation and DNA damage that leads to disease decades later.

      Asbestos causes cancer and noncancerous diseases.”

      Also lists sources.

    • zyxzevn and raymondkitchen,
      I think you both bring up important aspects about asbestos. Like Raymond points out and the first link in zyxzevn’s comment, some mineral forms of asbestos have a greater health liability than other forms.

      Evidently, there seems to be agreement in the mainstream about asbestos as a cause of ovarian cancer. “…the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) lists ovarian cancer as one of the four types of cancer definitely caused by asbestos exposure….”
      (From zyxzevn’s link)

      Generally, I think a lot of factors/substances could play a role in Ovarian Cancer.

      Actually, everyone has cancer-type cells develop daily. The body is pretty adept at disposing of these. However, in this era, our bodies are under assault from many different health damaging avenues. Beat up a body enough, and the dang thing doesn’t work right.

      I’m OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) on the topic of Fluoride. And there are links to Fluoride and Ovarian Cancer. Mechanically, fluoride certainly can facilitate any type of cancer.

      From what I have noticed, many of the Law firms which deal with tort and class action lawsuits, prefer to tackle cases which have legs.
      “Asbestos” litigation has been a winner for many firms.

  3. Before watching or reading any comments, let me try and guess…

    5. Crazy conspiracy theorist, I suppose you think fluoride is bad for you too?

    4. If you knew that our Baby Powder was actually made from dried and powdered babies, would you care about the asbestos?

    3. It is part of our carbon footprint reduction program, more dead babies, less CO2. We care for the planet.

    2. Asbestos is an essential part of any high fiber diet.

    1. Asbestos is good for babies, it prevents them catching on fire.

    • Number 1 is actually a very good application. I can’t count all the occasions when my brother and I would catch fire while growing up. I had to carry that little fire extinguisher in my backpack at all times.

      Of course, we weren’t that well set off, so we couldn’t afford J&J asbestos rich talk powder.

  4. Also gives new meaning to “he’s gonna talk(c) me to death.”

    • Tim’s still alive and kicking. Maybe that gag is done with cocaine. Or at least speed.

      Which makes me consider, if you get conned by your dealer and get sold some talc instead of cocaine you can sue him for attempted murder.

  5. Del Bigdick (yes, from now on I’m referring to this gentleman as he should be referred to) reports on some interesting tidbits about the J&J story and more.


    He’s prone to vocal guest destruction, but Del has some interesting oratory capabilities.

    I’ll provide one very interesting quote related to J&J story. This is J&J 1973 memo to the baby product division managers:

    Our current posture with respect to sponsorship to talc safety studies has been to initiate studies only as dictated by confrontation. This philosophy, so far, has allowed us to neutralize or hold in check data already generated by investigators who question the safety of talc. The principal advantage for this operating philosophy lies in the fact that we minimize the risk of possible self-generation of scientific data which may be politically or scientifically embarrassing.

    • I love Del Bigtree’s style!
      He puts emphatic passion and animation into his talks.

    Russian bots were US bots pretending to be Russians
    Most Russians do not know English anyway.

    Yellow vests forbidden?
    Time to write our protests yellow in snow?

    People get arrested for “protesting” with yellow vests. (Am. Vagabond)

    The protesters may now go to the banks instead. (Timcast)

    Boycotting Israel is almost forbidden
    Why do they have a wall and do they destroy properties?
    Why is bombing allowed? And endangering international airlines?
    Why can Bolton overrule Trump?
    Who really rules the US?

    Solution: Just ask
    WeAreChange talks with “The Ask Project” (WeAreChange)
    Just asking and listening helps to understand people, and is real journalism. In this case Israel/Palestine.

  7. Nice article from the BBC today:

    Looks like we’re in safe hands as Facebook has employed a UK “fact-checking” charity to help us decide what to think.

    It will cover all the main bases of debate, “everything from dangerous cancer ‘cures’ to false stories spreading after terrorist attacks, to fake content about voting processes ahead of elections”

    Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?


    • To illustrate the problem that fact-checking services and social networks face, the BBC has learned that a video went live last weekend falsely suggesting that smart meters emit radiation levels that are harmful to health.
      The original video had more than four million views in four days before being taken down.

      I’ll take this bit of information as a suppository, no explanation needed.
