So I click on this thread looking for a brunch place, thinking that Holi Hai is some kind of a new restaurant at Exchange Place.

Instead I find user BeatrixKiddo as usual calling people names, this time over effin talcum powder.

I think I lost my appetite.


Just wait for Yvonne to complain about the parking because of the event and Monroe to complain about the immigrants.

What, do you work for J&J BeatrixKiddo ? How is bringing out in the open a us of a dangerous substance ruining a culture ? If anything they are ruining themselves. I am surprised they did not figure this out for themselves.

$37 million awarded to N.J. couple in Johnson & Johnson baby powder cancer suit

It’s soft, powdery, sweet-smelling — and, says a New Jersey jury, deadly.

Johnson & Johnson was ordered to pay $37 million in the case of a man who said he got cancer from the company’s baby powder, which he believes contained talc laced with asbestos.

Banker Stephen Lanzo III was awarded $30 million in compensatory damages Thursday by a New Brunswick, N.J., jury. Lanzo’s wife, Kendra, got $7 million.

Lanzo, 46, said he used Johnson & Johnson talc-based powder products for more than 30 years.

He claimed that by inhaling dust from the products that contained cancer-causing asbestos, he contracted mesothelioma, a deadly form of cancer that affects the lining of the lungs.

The jury found J&J responsible for 70% of the damages and a division of France-based talc supplier Imerys was responsible for 30%.

Lanzo’s case was the first to go to trial in New Jersey, Johnson & Johnson’s home state. The jury sat barely a mile from J&J headquarters.

One of the company’s biggest shareholders is Woody Johnson, a pal of President Trump and the current U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom. Johnson, who owns the New York Jets, is a great-grandson of J&J founder Robert Wood Johnson.

J&J is fighting thousands of lawsuits claiming its talc products also cause ovarian cancer.

Talc itself is not believed to be cancerous. It’s a mineral made up mainly of magnesium, silicon and oxygen.

A banker claimed that using Johnson & Johnson talc-based products for decades caused his cancer.

But talc is often mined near asbestos, which is long proven to cause mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer. Mesothelioma is almost always fatal.

Johnson & Johnson and other companies say that since the 1970s, they’ve kept asbestos out of their baby powders and other talc products.

J&J denied the lawsuit’s charges and said its products — such as Johnson’s Baby Powder — don’t contain asbestos or cause cancer.

During the trial, J&J lawyers claimed Lanzo could have contracted mesothelioma from other sources, said media reports. It noted that the house in Montclair, N.J., where he grew up once had asbestos-wrapped pipes, and that the public schools attended were also treated for asbestos.

“While we are disappointed with this decision, the jury has further deliberations to conduct in this trial and we will reserve additional comment until the case is fully completed,” Johnson & Johnson spokeswoman Carol Goodrich said in a statement.

The jury will begin a second phase of the trial to consider punitive damages on Tuesday.

J&J faces talc-related lawsuits by 6,610 plaintiffs around the country, Reuters reports.

The claims are largely based on allegations that the company failed to warn women about the risk of developing ovarian cancer by using its products for feminine hygiene.

A Los Angeles judge in October tossed a $417 million verdict for a woman who said she got ovarian cancer from J&J talc products.

WRONG, Hey Debbie Downer, the powder they use is made from flowers and corn starch, which was discovered in Jersey City.


Hope you are right -- but how do you know? I'm sorry but I don't trust what is in it.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holi#Holi_powder

Natural colours were used in the past to celebrate Holi safely by applying turmeric, sandalwood paste, extracts of flowers and leaves. As the spring-blossoming trees that once supplied the colours used to celebrate Holi have become more rare, chemically produced industrial dyes have been used to take their place in almost all of urban India. Due to the commercial availability of attractive pigments, slowly the natural colours are replaced by synthetic colours. As a result, it has caused mild to severe symptoms of skin irritation and inflammation. Lack of control over the quality and content of these colours is a problem, as they are frequently sold by vendors who do not know their origin.

A 2007 study found that malachite green, a synthetic bluish-green dye used in some colours during Holi festival, was responsible for severe eye irritation in Delhi, if eyes were not washed upon exposure. Though the study found that the pigment did not penetrate through the cornea, malachite green is of concern and needs further study.[73]

Another 2009 study reports that some colours produced and sold in India contain metal-based industrial dyes, causing an increase in skin problems to some people in the days following Holi. These colours are produced in India, particularly by small informal businesses, without any quality checks and are sold freely in the market. The colours are sold without labeling, and the consumer lacks information about the source of the colours, their contents, and possible toxic effects. In recent years, several nongovernmental organisations have started campaigning for safe practices related to the use of colours. Some are producing and marketing ranges of safer colours derived from natural sources such as vegetables and flowers.[74]

These reports have galvanised a number of groups into promoting more natural celebrations of Holi. Development Alternatives, Delhi and Kalpavriksh,[75] Pune, The CLEAN India campaign[76] and Society for Child Development, through its Avacayam Cooperative Campaign[77] have launched campaigns to help children learn to make their own colours for Holi from safer, natural ingredients. Meanwhile, some commercial companies such as the National Botanical Research Institute have begun to market "herbal" dyes, though these are substantially more expensive than the dangerous alternatives. However, it may be noted that many parts of rural India have always resorted to natural colours (and other parts of festivities more than colours) due to availability.

In urban areas, some people wear nose mask and sun glasses to avoid inhaling pigments and to prevent chemical exposure to eyes.[78]
