Dangerous and Defective Hip Implants

Sadly, our culture in the United States seems to be turning into a culture of cheating. We recently witnessed the confession of Lance Armstrong. Over the past several years, we have watched the confessions made by many elected officials. Cheating, deceit, chicanery all seem to be much more rampant in our society today. Below are recent articles in the New York Times and Bloomberg about Johnson & Johnson’s hip implant. Emails show that Johnson & Johnson knew the very high failure rate of these hips. Yet, they shamelessly continued to market this dangerous medical device. Click on the second link to read some of the horror stories of patients devastated by this hip implant. Articles like these make you think more and more about J&J Ortho-McNeil sales reps downplaying the risks of Levaquin. 

Johnson & Johnson’s famous credo states that there is nothing more important than the patient. The articles below are yet another example of the company putting profits before people.

As always, please make sure to boycott all Johnson & Johnson consumer products. This company needs to be held accountable for their greed and harm to society!  Thank you for your advocacy.
