  • Baby Formula

    Manufacturers of baby formula have failed to warn doctors and consumers of potentially life-threatening risks associated with their baby formulas. A number of scientific studies reveal a link between baby formula and increased risk of Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC).

    Delayed or misdiagnosis of food-protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES) is common and can cause NEC.

    Cow’s milk protein allergy (CMPA) is a common food allergy. Milk allergies produce an extensive range of severe symptoms and adverse health effects. Cow’s milk allergies are among the top causes of food-protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES) in premature babies, infants, and newborns.

    Cow’s milk protein allergy symptoms include:

    🡆 Abdominal wall erythema
    🡆 Apnea (Breathing pauses)
    🡆 Bloody or dark stools
    🡆 Bradycardia (Slowed heart rate)
    🡆 Cardiovascular collapse
    🡆 Decreased bowel sounds
    🡆 Decreased peripheral perfusion
    🡆 Delayed gastric emptying and constipation
    🡆 Diarrhea
    🡆 Hypotension (Low blood pressure)
    🡆 Lethargy
    🡆 Low or unstable body temperature
    🡆 Shock
    🡆 Tender, red, or painful abdomen
    🡆 Trouble feeding
    🡆 Vomiting, particularly green vomit containing bile

  • CPAP-BiPAP

    On April 26, 2021, Philips issued a recall notification (U.S. only) / field safety notice (International Markets) for their products including:

    🡆 CPAP
    🡆 BiPap
    🡆 Ventilator

    Philips has recalled several breathing devices and ventilators due to sound-reducing foam that might degrade, become toxic and cause illness including asthma, headache, nausea and vomiting, hypersensitivity, respiratory problems, cognitive difficulties and a variety of different cancers.

    The recall includes specific Philips Bi-Level Positive Airway Pressure (Bi-Level PAP), Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) and mechanical ventilator devices that may have potential health risks related to polyester-based polyurethane sound abatement foam used in the machines. This foam can deteriorate and project tiny particles and gases that are toxic and can irritate airways, cause health problems or may carry the risk of cancer, according to the company.

  • Firefighter Foams

    Exposure to film-forming foams (AFFFs) commonly used to fight fires caused the development of testicular cancer, indicating that several chemical manufacturers withheld important safety warnings about the potential side effects. A long list of companies are named as defendants, including 3M Company, Buckey Fire Equipment Company, Chemguard, Inc., Chemours Company FC, Chubb Fire, Ltd., Corteva, Inc. Du Pont De Nemours Inc., Dynax Corporation, Kidde, National Foam, Inc., Tyco Fire Products, United Technologies Corporation and UTC Fire & Security Americas Corporation, Inc.

    In addition to firefighting foams, PFASs are chemical substances used to manufacture several products, including food packaging materials, pizza boxes, popcorn bags, fabrics, nonstick cooking pans, and other products. The firefighting foam has been regularly used at military bases nationwide over the past decade during routine fire extinguishing exercises and is increasingly used by civilian firefighters.

    The chemicals are projected to take thousands of years to degrade, and past studies have shown their ability to enter and stay in the environment and human body through the air, dust, food, soil, and water. Previous U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) studies have shown PFAS chemicals primarily settle into the blood, kidney and liver, and could likely be detected in the blood of 98% of the U.S. population.

  • Hernia Mesh

    A hernia mesh is a device inserted during surgery to help repair a hernia. Hernias occur when an organ, intestine, or fatty tissue squeezes through a hole or weakness in surrounding muscle. The hernia mesh is meant to strengthen that muscle or repair the hole, reducing the risk of future hernias in the same location.

    Most of them include a material called polypropylene, which is a plastic commonly used in many different medical devices and objects like water bottles. Polypropylene is a plastic that should not be used in devices meant for permanent implantation in the human body, yet manufacturers continue to use it because it is cheap. Polypropylene tends to degrade over time, sometimes in months, though typically over many years. Since a hernia mesh is a permanent implant, becoming part of the patient's body, this decay can cause serious issues including autoimmune reactions, bowel obstruction, and dangerous infections. Additional surgery is often required to remove a defective mesh, which brings more medical costs and risks with it.

  • Paraquat

    Paraquat is a herbicide that is widely used throughout the world for weed and grass control, particularly by farmers and agricultural workers. The herbicide is typically applied or sprayed onto fields by tractor-drawn rigs or “crop-dusting” airplanes.

    Recently, lawsuits have been filed against Syngenta and Growmark, the manufacturers of Paraquat, by individuals alleging that their long-term use or exposure to Paraquat caused them to develop Parkinson’s disease. Most of the individuals who have been filing these lawsuits are either agricultural workers or farmers who used and/or were directly exposed to Paraquat.

    Ingestion of small to medium amounts of Paraquat may lead to development of the following adverse health effects within several days to several weeks:

    🡆 Tremor or shaking
    🡆 Slowed movement (bradykinesia)
    🡆 Rigid or stiff muscles
    🡆 tooping or hunching over
    🡆 Impaired balance
    🡆 Loss of automatic movements
    🡆 Trouble walking
    🡆 Speech impairment or changes
    🡆 Writing difficulty or changes

  • Products Containing Benzene

    On December 17, 2021 The Procter & Gamble Company issued a voluntary product recall of their aerosol dry conditioner spray products and aerosol dry shampoo spray products from Pantene, Aussie, Herbal Essences, and Waterl<ss, in addition to previously discontinued aerosol dry shampoo products from Old Spice and Hair Food, after detecting the cancer-causing chemical benzene in some products.

    Benzene has also been found in sunscreen and after-sun care products, prompting Johnson & Johnson to recently RECALL the following products they manufacture:

    🡆 Neutrogena® Beach Defense® aerosol sunscreen
    🡆 Neutrogena® Cool Dry Sport aerosol sunscreen
    🡆 Neutrogena® Invisible Daily™ defense aerosol sunscreen
    🡆 Neutrogena® Ultra Sheer® aerosol sunscreen
    🡆 Aveeno® Protect + Refresh aerosol sunscreen

    Valisure LLC, an online pharmacy, found 78 (about 27%) of the nearly 300 sprays and lotions it tested were positive for benzene. The FDA concentration limit for benzene is 2 parts per million (ppm). Valisure found up to three times this limit in some batches.

    Valisure's analysis identified 14 batches from 8 different Sun care products which had benzene concentrations of 2 ppm or more. These products are sold under the popular brands Neutrogena, Sun Bum, CVS Health, and Fruit of the Earth.

    Cancer-causing chemicals such as benzene present in sunscreens and after-sun care products is a serious concern. Studies show the bloodstream can contain high levels of these chemicals after sunscreen and sun after-care products are applied to the skin.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Xeljanz

    The FDA approved Xeljanz® for rheumatoid arthritis in 2012. As a condition of approval, the FDA required the manufacturer, Pfizer, to conduct a safety trial to study the risk for heart-related events.

    The FDA Stated in the Safety Alert:

    "During the most recent analysis of the trial, a FDA appointed monitoring committee found an increased occurrence of blood clots in the lungs and death in patients treated with tofacitinib 10 mg (Xeljanz®) twice daily compared to patients treated with tofacitinib 5 mg twice daily or a TNF inhibitor."

    Warning Signs of a Pulmonary Embolism include:

    🡆 Sudden difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
    🡆 Pain in chest or back
    🡆 Coughing up blood
    🡆 Severe sweating
    🡆 Skin that is clammy or bluish-colored
