Petition: By Choice For Procter & Gamble To Take The Contaminants Out Of Their Products
Petition Background (Preamble):
Consumers please sign this petition.
Stop purchasing Procter and Gamble, as well as, other company’s everyday use of some of their baby products, household cleaning products, household cooking products, plastic containers products and cosmetics products, until proven changes are made.
1,4-dioxide is a man made flammable colorless liquid with an odor. It is a dangerous fire and explosion hazard when it is exposed to heat and flame.
Dry 1,4-dioxane is stable, but it becomes unstable when temperatures and pressures are elevated.
Could that be the reason for a dryer fire?
If exposed to carcinogenic 1,4-dioxane compounds it is believed to have the strongest effect during the growth and development stages of children.
Therefore, the greatest concern about 1,4-dioxane in personal care products is the potential exposure to children.
Since the effects of many carcinogens are cumulative, low-level of exposure to children beginning at a young age may result in considerable cancer risk over time.
1,4-dioxane may cause cancer and severe skin allergies.
Some of 1,4-dioxane symptoms include dizziness, vomiting, unconsciousness, abdominal pain, eye irritation, allergies, skin rashes and severe health effects.
The NIOSH International Chemical Safety Card on 1,4-dioxane indicated that 1,4-dioxane can be absorbed through the skin, which is of considerable concern, considering it is in many personal care products.
1,4-dioxane, formaldehyde and other contaminants are found in everyday use of some of Procter and Gamble and other company's infant/baby products, such as baby wash, bubble bath, baby shampoos, infants and toddlers bath tubs.
1,4-dioxane, formaldehyde and other contaminants are found in many other unnamed personal care products for infants, toddlers and older kids too.
1,4-dioxane, formaldehyde and other contaminants are found in everyday use of some of Procter and Gamble young adults and adults personal products and household products such as detergents, soap, shampoos, deodorant, body lotions, dish washing soap, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, which they once owned.
1,4-dioxane, formaldehyde and other contaminants are found in many more unnamed personal care products and household products for young adults and adults, too.
Procter and Gamble take the 1,4-dioxane, formaldehyde and other secretive contaminants that are not included on the products labels out of the products.
Tests revealed that Procter and Gamble had the highest levels of 1,4-dioxane contaminants in some of their products.
The most important, but by choice, smart decision that Procter and Gamble should make in their life time are to inform the consumers about the overall secret contaminants that are in some of their products. Since by, Procter and Gamble choice, contaminants are kept secretive away from the consumers, therefore I can’t tell consumers what products to purchase.
I wouldn’t be able to live with myself if I told the consumers to use a product and later, I found out that, that product had contaminants in it. And also, I wouldn't be able to live with myself if later, I found out that the consumers were harm, injure or deceased from the company contaminants, which causes cancer, in which I told them it was safe to use.
By rules/regulations these big companies don’t have to warn the consumers when contaminants are in their products, because the contaminants that causes cancer are not consider an ingredient.
The consumers may never know the names of all the products that the contaminants are in, because, but by choice, Procter and Gamble have kept information away from consumers, when it comes to contaminants in their products.
It doesn’t matter how many scientists are employed with Procter and Gamble, who says, they are devoted to ensuring that their products and ingredients are safe. Scientists with years of experience make mistakes, which may cause consumers, severe injuries and deaths.
Procter and Gamble was founded liable for a human death, after she used their Rely tampons.
It was revealed through testimony that Procter and Gamble had known of a link between the tampons and toxic shock syndrome, and they still kept the tampons on the market.
A jury awarded the family damages.
What is $300,000.00 thousand dollars compared to a deceased young lady, who left behind her precious family?
A young lady bought a bottle of Clairol Nice 'n' Easy to dye her hair, but after using it her head began to weep and itch. Her head also was sore and became swollen.
Procter and Gamble was accused of negligently, examining, manufacturing and testing the hair color. Procter and Gamble were also accuse of selling the hair color in a dangerous and defective condition that was not fit for the use and it’s purposes for, which the hair color was sold.
It was stated that the manufacturer failed to sufficiently test the product or that it knowingly concealed the hair color defects. Even though the young lady was awarded an out of court settlement, Procter and Gamble did not accept liability. What is E 4,300 hundred dollars compared to the lost of one’s hair, which grew back in different patterns?
Clairol Natural Instincts hair color and Clairol Nice n Easy natural black hair dye have made people lose their hair. People have been left with chemical burns to their scalp. One of the victim’s hairs on her head fell out in large clumps for nearly 10 months. Procter and Gamble offer one of the victims an $8.00 dollar refund and a wig.
Paraphenylenediamine (PPD) is a chemical substance that is widely used as a permanent hair dye and is an ingredient in the hair dye that causes chemical burns.
Procter and Gamble had evidence of Fixodent danger, but did not warn the consumers.
Fixodent contains a form of zinc which is bonded to an unknown formulation. Procter and Gamble failed to give adequate instructions on how to prevent deviation from accepted use.
Being exposed to an excessive amount of zinc can result in copper depletion and serious negative adverse neurological effects. In 2008, a reviewed journal reported on patients suffering from neuropathy and other neurological symptoms typical of zinc poisoning and copper depletion. Yet it is still on the market.
In the Middle East Oater’s expert panel recalled/banned two of Procter and Gamble head and shoulders Lively & Silky, and Shine shampoos, because they do not comply with international standards.
High levels of 1,4-dioxane was found above 10 parts per million. The panel said, the 1,4-dioxane compound could cause skin disease and cancer.
Also the health and environment authorities had considerable concern among the long turn users of head and shoulder shampoos. Authorities warned consumers over usage, that excess presence of the hazardous 1,4-dioxane could cause skin diseases and cancer.
These big companies constantly have cat fights with each other all the time. In the course of business they sue each other for millions of dollars, variously, over advertisement, infringement and much more. It should be their responsibility to not only ensure, but make sure their products don’t harm, injure or kill the consumers.
Why can’t they care about the consumers the way they care about suing each other?
A company sued Procter and Gamble alleging that Procter and Gamble misled consumers about bounty paper towels advertisement, by saying quicker picker upper. The two companies reached an out of court settlement. Even though the company asked for $723,000 thousand dollars the amount of the settlement was not disclosed.
Procter and Gamble don't necessarily go by the book.
Several of Procter and Gamble employees snooped in a rival company trash to obtain company information. The two companies have settle the sue case.
Beware of Procter and Gamble Products. What you think are good for you may not be good for your health.
There is a lot more to be told.
Since some consumers says, everything cause cancer, my question is:
Do you won’t to die from contaminant 1,4-dioxane and formaldehyde that are in Procter and Gamble products, but are not included on the products ingredient labels?
Consumers shouldn’t have to be diagnose with cancer and skin rashes that could have been prevented by Procter and Gamble not having carcinogenic 1,4-dioxane and formaldehyde cancer causing hazard, harmful, contaminants in their products.
Products can be made without contaminants.
Share this with face book, put this on your face book wall, twitter, friends, emails, and all other social networks...My goal is to reach 1 million consumers, therefore I need your signature.
