WEB Notes: They did not just know, they purposely kept it a secret from the public and regulators. Why? Money, profits, power, you name it. Asbestos is a problem when you breathe it. The asbestos then enters the lungs and causes respiratory issues and failure among other health concerns. Think about baby powder, it fills the air when it is used. To keep such a thing secret is disturbing to say in the least…
If you think for one single second this is an isolated case and only happens at Johnson & Johnson you are mistaken.
This occurs every day at nearly every large company and government institution. Those instances do not concern asbestos, but something else.
There are many skeletons that are revealed if one has connections to individuals higher up within a company. Just because someone wears a suite an a tie and has a lot of money does not make them honest or believable. They should be questioned just as any other man. This is why our Father is not a respecter of persons and why we are told to treat men equally, (Romans 2:11).
To consider this thought, I will leave you with the book of James to consider.
1 My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.
2 For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment;
3 And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:
4 Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?
5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?
6 But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?
7 Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?
8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:
9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
Facing thousands of lawsuits alleging that its talc caused cancer, J&J insists on the safety and purity of its iconic product. But internal documents examined by Reuters show that the company’s powder was sometimes tainted with carcinogenic asbestos and that J&J kept that information from regulators and the public.
