Is US Big Pharma getting away with murder? RT’s Boom Bust investigates

US pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson is considering a new liability strategy to handle the thousands of lawsuits the company faces over its controversial talcum powder.

The suits allege the company’s talcum products contain asbestos, and that their use has resulted in cancer for thousands of Americans.

Facing a legal onslaught, Johnson & Johnson is considering creating a separate liability company to deal with the claims. However, critics point out that this would limit the compensation paid to victims.

Mike Papantonio, host of ‘America’s Lawyer’, digs into the reports and the firm’s history of dealing with lawsuits.

Johnson & Johnson recalls five of its Neutrogena and Aveeno aerosol spray sunscreens after finding cancer-causing chemical benzene in samples

Johnson & Johnson has recalled five of its Neutrogena and Aveeno aerosol spray sunscreens after internal testing uncovered the cancer-causing chemical benzene in some samples.

The New Jersey-based company on Wednesday told consumers to immediately stop using the products and discard them.

J&J insisted only low levels of benzene were found, which would not be expected to pose a health risk, but said the company was voluntarily recalling the five sunscreens 'out of an abundance of caution'.

European Data Protection Supervisor and Board Demand Total Ban on Automatic Recognition via A.I. Technology

By B.N. Frank

It’s overwhelming to think about how much we are all being watched and tracked. This happens often without our knowledge or consent. A few years ago, the term “Surveillance Capitalism” was introduced. It’s the perfect name for a perfectly creepy practice.

Despite opposition, “Surveillance Capitalism” is only increasing since a growing number of businesses and other entities insist on tracking us for targeted advertising and other purposes. Artificial Intelligence and other technologies are being used for this.

The Sweet Stevia Conspiracy

By Tom Theimer

Stevia, a plant once banned and confiscated in the U.S. during the ’80s and ’90s because it had non-toxic and sweet-tasting leaves, has a story all its own. Even Stevia’s own printed story was at one time seized by the FDA in Dallas with the intent to burn the publications.
Competition for Market Share

For me, the story of Stevia begins at the time of the Ford Administration during the early ’70s, shortly after Ford pardoned Nixon for his crimes. Donald Rumsfeld is the Secretary of Defense, while Dick Cheney serves as Chief of Staff under President Ford. Then President Carter takes office in 1977. So, where do fellows like Rumsfeld and Cheney go when they are not a part of their party’s political arena and need jobs? ...

“Bad for African Farmers, Bad for the Planet”: How the Gates Foundation Is Driving the Food System in the Wrong Direction

By GRAIN

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has spent nearly US$6 billion over the past 17 years trying to improve agriculture, mainly in Africa. This is a lot of money for an underfunded sector, and, as such, carries great weight. To better understand how the Gates Foundation is shaping the global agriculture agenda, GRAIN analysed all the food and agriculture grants the foundation has made up until 2020.

We found that, while the Foundation’s grants focus on African farmers, the vast majority of its funding goes to groups in North America and Europe. The grants are also heavily skewed to technologies developed by research centres and corporations in the North for poor farmers in the South, completely ignoring the knowledge, technologies and biodiversity that these farmers already possess.

Washing machines and dishwashers will last longer and be easier to repair under new rules for manufacturers coming into force TODAY

Manufacturers must make home products such as washing machines and dishwashers easier to repair under new standards coming into force on Thursday.

White goods and televisions will be cheaper to run and last longer as a result of the new energy efficiency rules to tackle 'premature obsolescence' – a short lifespan deliberately built into an appliance by manufacturers which leads to unnecessary and costly replacements for the consumer.

Manufacturers are now legally obliged to make spare parts for products available to consumers for the first time – a new legal right for repairs – so that electrical appliances can be fixed easily.

Why Big Pharma Wants Human Vaccine Factories

By Julie Beal

Not all coronavirus vaccines use mRNA or DNA. Some of them contain ready-made spike proteins that are made using synthetic biology. They’re grotesquely unnatural and laced with weird adjuvants that most people have never heard of. The way the artificial proteins are made reveals the short cuts being taken with the mRNA/DNA versions and why calling them vaccines is the equivalent to saying a home-brew kit is the same as a glass of wine.

Does Paraquat Weed Killer Cause Parkinson’s Disease? U.S. Judge Sets Trial in Litigation against Syngenta

A federal judge appointed to coordinate proceedings for claims that Syngenta AG’s paraquat weed killers cause Parkinson’s disease said Wednesday she was setting a jury trial date for Nov. 15, 2022.

U.S. Judge Nancy Rosenstengel of the Southern District of Illinois issued the order in an initial hearing with lawyers from multiple firms who are representing people alleging their exposure to Syngenta’s popular herbicides caused them or family members to develop and suffer from the dreaded neurological disorder.

There are 157 cases pending in state and federal courts around the country, according to a June 22 court filing. The plaintiffs allege Syngenta was aware of the risks but failed to warn users.

Syngenta, which is owned by a Chinese chemical company, has denied the allegations.

Along with Syngenta, the defendants include Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LP, and Chevron USA, Inc. All have denied any liability.

Smart Meters “quietly broadcasting data” That May Reveal What Infrastructure Was Protected During Texas Snowstorm

By B.N. Frank

American opposition to utility “Smart” Meters – electric, gas, and water – has been ongoing due to safety and privacy concerns. Because “Smart” Meters are 2-way wireless transmitting, they allow utility companies to collect customer usage data 24/7 which they can use to try to sell more products and services to customers and/or sell the data to 3rd parties to do whatever they want with it.

“Smart” Meters also allow them to remotely control services as well as ration customer energy use. Utilities can’t do this with traditional 1-way analog meters. Because of the 2-way wireless transmitting feature, “Smart” Meters are also at a high risk for cybersecurity issues. A hacker recently used the vulnerability of smart “Smart” Meters to learn more about what happened during the Texas snowstorm...

Pepsi and Mountain Dew Are Being Sued By This Coffee Company

Rise Nitro Brewing Co. wants PepsiCo to wake up, smell the coffee, and admit that the launch of Mountain Dew Rise threatens to eclipse the small Rise Nitro Brewing's brand. On June 15, the New York City-based canned cold brew company filed a lawsuit against PepsiCo Inc., after Rise Brewing says they reached out to Pepsi in an attempt to keep their concerns out of court over the name "Mountain Dew Rise."

Rise Brewing's claim reportedly adds that PepsiCo has a considerable history of infringing on other brands' names—from the source: "The smaller company painted Pepsi as a habitual trademark infringer, pointing to earlier cases in which Pepsi was sued for launching products that allegedly ripped off VitaminWater, Polar seltzer and Simply Orange juice." Bloomberg also reported when PepsiCo settled out of court earlier this year with a Mexican beverage brand, Electrolit, which said PepsiCo's branding for Gatorlyte was too similar to their brand.

Washington State’s Approaching Energy Crisis – Good Intentions Gone Wrong?

Washington State has trouble on the horizon – trouble with its electrical grid. Trouble as in not being reliable. Trouble as in risk of rolling blackouts.

“In our kind of zeal to remove CO2 emissions and aim for this 100% clean energy, we’re creating a reliability crisis, potentially,” Benton County PUD General Manager Rick Dunn told the Lens News. “We need to get more serious about securing our future supply of electricity.”

Dunn warns that Washington faces a large gap between grid demand on the coldest and hottest days and the availability of dependable electrical generation over the next decade. After nearly two decades of relatively flat growth, both annual and peak electricity loads are forecasted to increase in the region by 5 or 6%, even after accounting for increased energy efficiency.

How An Electric Car Battery Can Fail: One Story

Batteries are what make an electric car an electric car. But they can also be its undoing.

I’ve owned EVs since 2013. I now drive a 2021 Chevy Bolt — but it’s not the car I should be driving.

My car is actually a 2018 Chevy Bolt. But after leaving it at the dealer in April to fix a battery issue, I haven’t seen it since.

The problem appears to be a combination of a Chevy Bolt battery recall and a chip shortage which has been plaguing the car industry since the pandemic began last year.

My problem began when the “MyChevrolet” app on my smartphone started giving me a warning (shown above) about my 2018 Bolt, urging me to take it to the dealer to address the issue.

This is a general warning that applies to all owners of 2017, 2018, and 2019 Bolts in the wake of incidents where Bolts caught fire.

"Discrimination At The Hands Of Their Government": Another Federal Court Has Halted A Racially-Biased Federal Relief Program

The order was made in favor of twelve plaintiffs from nine different states who sued the Secretary of Agriculture and the Administrator of the Farm Service Agency to enjoin the Biden Administration from implementing a loan-forgiveness program for farmers and ranchers under Section 1005 of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA). The program pays up to 120% of direct or guaranteed farm loan balances for Black, American Indian, Hispanic, Asian American or Pacific Islander farmers.

As part of the ARPA, Congress appropriated “such sums as may be necessary” to pay for the cost of loan modifications and payments to “socially disadvantaged” farmers and ranchers. § 1005(a)(1). The term “socially disadvantaged farmer or rancher” is defined under 7 U.S.C. § 2279(a). § 1005(b)(3) as a farmer or rancher who is a member of a “socially disadvantaged group.” § 2279(a)(5).

Frustrated Homebuyers Are Competing With Investment Funds That Are Literally Buying Up Entire Neighborhoods

Unfortunately, many potential home buyers don’t even realize that they may be competing with investment funds, billionaires and wealth foreigners.  Gobbling up homes is now considered to be a way to make huge returns very rapidly.  Once homes are purchased, they are either flipped quickly for a large profit or they are rented out at very aggressive rates.  Meanwhile, it is becoming a lot more difficult for ordinary Americans to find affordable places to live.

"A Dangerous Precedent" - 3rd FDA Advisor Quits After Controversial Alzheimer's Drug Approval

While the mainstream media focused on the hope-filled headlines that, for the first time since 2003, the FDA approved Biogen's Aduhelm treatment for Alzheimer's Disease; few, if any, were fully aware of the levels of controversy behind the scenes.

Aside from the scientific uncertainty over whether amyloid plaque treatments are an approach worth continuing...

Despite the dominance of the amyloid hypothesis over the past few decades, evidence that links reductions in plaque levels to improvements in cognition is “thin, at best”, says Jason Karlawish, a geriatrician and co-director of the Penn Memory Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

“Desperation should drive the funding of science, not drive the way we interpret the science,” he says.

It turns out that despite the fact that not one member of the FDA Advisory Committee voted to approve Aduhelm, the FDA recently approved this Alzheimer therapy anyway, relying on an alternative measure of activity.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We desperately need approaches to this horrific issue of dementia, which come from classical, morally responsible science, rather than what the drug is apt to make, financially; I am quite sure that since its approval, whether it actually works for dementia victims or not, it will be another huge"cash cow" for Big Pharma.

And what the hell is this "alternative measure of activity" which caused this drug to be approved for Alzheimer patients in the first place?!? Can someone please quantify this for me in plain English?!? I am betting that the straight answer to this question is, "HELL no!!"

5 Signs That America’s Raging Inflation Crisis Is Accelerating

When you begin to wildly create new money, this is what happens. Prices go haywire and shortages tend to occur. -- Unfortunately, our leaders don’t seem to have even a basic understanding of the laws of economics, and the pain that we have experienced so far is just the tip of the iceberg.

If they were smart, global authorities would be taking emergency measures to get inflation under control before it is too late. -- Of course that is not happening. Instead, they just continue to feed the monster. -- This crisis is going to go from bad to worse, and you should prepare accordingly.

Over 90% Of The News You See On Television Is Owned And Controlled By Just 5 Giant Corporations

Internet news is more diversified, but in conjunction with the 15 billionaires that own and control America’s newspaper industry, the same five corporations have come to dominate online as well.  The tech giants have certainly helped their cause by designating them as “trusted sources” and by adjusting algorithms to ensure that we get a steady diet of the “news” that the media giants are constantly putting out.  The entire system is designed to direct us to certain voices, and those voices are constantly working very hard to alter what we think about things.

An Inconvenient Truth: EVs May Offer A "Negligible" CO2 Difference From ICE Vehicles

Are the carbon footprints of EVs really as drastically lower than that of internal combustion engine vehicles? When considering the amount of carbon and CO2 created from assembling lithium ion batteries, one firm thinks the difference could be "negligible".

Such was the topic of a new blog post by natural resource investors Goehring & Rozencwajg (G&R), a "fundamental research firm focused exclusively on contrarian natural resource investments with a team with over 30 years of dedicated resource experience."

The firm, established in 2015, posted a blog entry entitled "Exploring Lithium-ion Electric Vehicles’ Carbon Footprint" this week, where they call into question a former ICE vs. EV comparison performed by the Wall Street Journal and, while citing work performed by Jefferies, argue that there could literally be "no reduction in CO2 output" in some EV vs. ICE comparisons.

SURVEILLANCE CITY: NYPD CAN USE MORE THAN 15,000 CAMERAS TO TRACK PEOPLE USING FACIAL RECOGNITION IN MANHATTAN, BRONX AND BROOKLYN

BY AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL
The New York City Police Department (NYPD) has the ability to track people in Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronx by running images from 15,280 surveillance cameras into invasive and discriminatory facial recognition software, a new Amnesty International investigation reveals.

Thousands of volunteers from around the world participated in the investigation, tagging 15,280 surveillance cameras at intersections across Manhattan (3,590), Brooklyn (8,220) and the Bronx (3,470). Combined, the three boroughs account for almost half of the intersections (47%) in New York City, constituting a vast surface area of pervasive surveillance.
