Talcum powder products, including Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder, Shower-to-Shower Powder and other talc products, are believed to be responsible for many cases of ovarian and uterine (endometrial) cancer. The World Health Organization, The American Cancer Society and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), among others, have recognized the likely link between the use of talc-based baby and body powder products by women for feminine hygiene and an increased risk of developing certain reproductive cancers.
In 2013 and 2014, corn farmers lost billions of dollars when China rejected all corn shipments from the United States. The action by China was a result of GMO corn sold by Swiss-based Syngenta, which was not approved for sale in China.
Syngenta failed to obtain pre-market approval of its GMO seed before it was sold to farmers throughout the United States. The presence of unapproved, GMO corn in U.S. corn supplies resulted in a dramatic drop in the price of corn. By marketing GMO corn before ensuring its approval in foreign markets, Syngenta harmed hundreds of thousands of corn farmers across the United States, including those who did not use the company's corn.
