Johnson & Johnson Products Can Cause Cancer

4 posts in this topic

I just found out that Johnson & Johnson products contain quaternium-15 and dioxane that can cause cancer.

Johnson & Johnson has said that it will take 2 years to remove those ingredients from their products.

I been using Purpose for years and feel crappy about this whole issue. Purpose contains one of the chemicals quaternium-15 which releases formaldehyde; a skin, eye, and respiratory irritant, and a known carcinogen (formaldehyde exposure has been associated with leukemia specifically).

Here are some articles:

Anything you do nowadays can cause cancer.

I wouldn't worry about it though over exposure and long term repetitive use can yes possibility cause cancer, by cancer causing carcinogens. Anything that damages the DNA enough times to where it cannot be rebuilt/fixed can lead to cancer. Some people are more prone then others. Cancer is essential an uncontrolled growth of cells. The cell's p51 (i believe) site responsible for cell destruction (apoptosis) becomes broken leading to continued cell growth aka cancer. Anything that affects this can cause cancer. So again i wouldnt worry about it because there is many things out there that do this.

Why would it take 2 years?

J&J has no intentions of removing chemicals from their products. I emailed them over 5 years ago about the J&J BABY shampoo having I-4 Dioxane in it. They admitted it was in there, and basically said it didn't matter. It was in "safe" levels... safe for a baby? really? I avoid J&J like the plague. They don't care about their customers one bit.
