He spent decades protecting lives — now his community is hoping to help save his. Retired NYPD Officer Scott Blackshaw, who spent days searching for bodies at Ground Zero after the 9/11 attacks, was told he only had months to live after he was diagnosed with terminal brain and spinal cancer earlier this year.

Johnson & Johnson must pay $37 million to a New Jersey couple who claimed that the husband’s cancer was caused by using the company’s baby powder for decades, a jury ordered Thursday. Banker Stephen Lanzo was awarded $30 million dollars in compensatory damages by a New Brunswick, N.J. jury. His wife, Kendra, was awarded $7 million. Lanzo said that he used Johnson & Johnson talc-based powder products for more than three decades. He claimed that inhaling dust from the products containing cancer-causing asbestos gave him mesothelioma, a deadly form of cancer that affects the lining of the lungs. The jury found J&J was responsible for 70 percent of the damages and a division of France-based talc supplier Imerys was responsible for 30 percent. Lanzo’s case was the first to go to trial in New Jersey, the home state of Johnson & Johnson. The verdict came as J&J fights thousands of cases claiming its talc products can also cause ovarian cancer. … [Read more...] about $37 million awarded to NJ couple in Johnson & Johnson baby powder cancer suit
