Documentary Toxic Beauty New

In 1982, world-renowned epidemiologist Dr. Daniel Cramer linked Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder to ovarian cancer. Since the 1960s, J&J allegedly knew the risks and did nothing. In 2004, Dr. Philippa Darbre, a UK scientist, found parabens, a chemical preservative in many cosmetics, in breast tissue. In 2018, the National Institute of Health’s sister study linked breast cancer to personal care product use. Links to hormonal disruption in baby boys, developmental delays, low sperm count in men, infertility, cancer, diabetes, obesity and skin disease — the cosmetic industry isn’t pretty. Top researchers worldwide have the hard science to answer the question: Are cosmetics and personal care products making us sick? Toxic Beauty is a documentary feature film with exclusive access to scientists, lawyers, advocates, regulators, politicians, a dynamic whistleblower, survivors and women who have lost their lives. It follows the class action lawsuit against J&J and the plaintiffs, personal stories of women fighting for justice in a race against time with this deadly disease.
