  • 3M Combat Ear Plugs

    Between 2003 and 2015, the dual-ended 3M Combat Arms Ear Plugs (version 2) were standard issued equipment for soldiers. The plugs were supposed to provide two levels of ear protection: one side was intended to block all noise and the other was intended to protect the eardrums from gunfire and explosions while still allowing soldiers to communicate freely. The failed dual-ended Combat Arms Ear Plugs (version 2) to protect soldiers’ ears has resulted in high incidences of tinnitus (ringing or buzzing of the ears) as well as partial or full hearing loss.

  • Clergy Abuse

    It can take many years for victims of abuse in the Catholic church to bring their story to light, as well as track down those in the church who have been relocated due alleged sexual abuse cases. However, this has recently changed as Governor Cuomo signed into law the “Child Victims Protection and Accountability Act,” or the Child Victims Act. The act extends the statute of limitations for child victims who have been sexually abused, assaulted, or molested while under the age of 18. Child victims will have the ability to make claims until they reach age of 55. Additionally, for a short window of time, any person who has been sexually abused, assaulted, or molested under the age of 18 can bring a claim against their victimizer (regardless of their age or how long ago the abuse occurred). Therefore, it is important to act as soon as possible by contacting an attorney with experience handling cases of sexual assault.

  • PPI’s

    Proton pump inhibitors (also referred to as PPIs) are a specific class of medications used to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), gastric ulcers, dyspepsia, Barrett’s Esophagus, and more common gastric issues like heartburn. Because of the large numbers of people across the U.S. who suffer from heartburn, GERD, and similar gastric problems, these drugs are prescribed at a very high rate by physicians, in large part due to heavy advertising to the public and pharmaceutical promotion to doctors. Side effects include chronic kidney disease, high blood pressure, low blood count (anemia), nerve damage, heart disease, blood vessel disease and weakened bones.

  • Roundup

    Roundup, which is produced by Monsanto, contains a commonly used herbicide called glyphosate. This substance is widely used as a weed killer on both private and commercial properties. It’s also sprayed directly on crops throughout the United States. In fact, some studies have noted that glyphosate can be found in a wide variety of cereals and other breakfast food products. The World Health Organization has found a link between cancer and glyphosate. Claims are being made that Monsanto has failed to inform consumers that there may be a link between Roundup and non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, and has repeatedly taken steps to hide this information.

  • Talcum Powder

    Thousands of people are suing Johnson & Johnson over cancers allegedly caused by baby powder, and the company has been forced to release internal documents. The documents showed that the company had known about asbestos contamination since at least as early as 1971 and had spent decades finding ways to conceal the evidence from the public. In December of 2018, the company lost its request to reverse a jury verdict that ruled in favor of the accusers, which required the company to pay $4.14 billion in punitive damages and $550 million in compensatory damages. With how widespread the use of baby powder currently is, there are still thousands of cases to be brought to justice and will continue to be for the foreseeable future.

  • Truvada

    Truvada, manufactured by Gilead, contains the active ingredient tenofovir disproxil, and increases the risk of bone density loss, fracture, renal impairment, and kidney failure. A safer version of tenofovir, known as TAF, is an effective antiretroviral that does not pose the same risk for kidney problems and bone density loss. However, despite knowing this, Gilead continued to manufacture the drug, thus resulting in horrible side effects.

  • Uloric

    When Uloric was first approved in 2009, the FDA required the drug manufacturer, Takeda, to conduct a large postmarket safety clinical trial in more than 6,000 patients with gout treated with either Uloric or allopurinol. The primary outcome revealed increased risk of heart-related death, heart attack, stroke and unstable angina which is a condition where there is inadequate blood supply to the heart requiring surgical intervention.

    A whistleblower lawsuit filed in 2012 specifically alleged that Takeda, the manufacturer of Uloric, failed to reveal that the drug could lead to potentially fatal side effects when combined with other drugs such as digoxin, imuran, methadone, and warfarin. The failure to reveal this information reportedly led to the death of some Uloric patients.
