PFAS Contamination Lawsuit against Kleenex. According to a new federal class action lawsuit, deadly PFAS pollution from a Connecticut Kleenex plant has contaminated the land, well water aquifers, and drinking water, risked residents’ health, and destroyed their property values.

PFAS Contamination lawsuit

PFAS Contamination lawsuit. Over 15,000 of these similar man-made chemicals are linked with cancer, severe diseases, and wrongful death.

This Kleenex PFAS Contamination Lawsuit is the first case involving facial tissues, though researchers previously found the chemicals in toilet paper.

PFAS and the related 15,000 man-made chemicals are going to be the biggest environmental disaster of the 21st century.

What is PFAS?

PFAS stands for Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances. PFAS are a class of more than 15,000 man-made chemicals that have been widely used in various industrial and consumer products since the 1950s. PFAS are prized for their ability to repel water and oil, resist heat, and reduce friction. PFAS is supposed to be regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the federal government, but usually nothing comes of it and hence Private Citizens lawsuits like this one, to force the regulatory bodies to act.

PFAS have been used in a wide range of products including non-stick cookware, think Teflon, stain-resistant fabrics, think ScotchGard, water-repellent clothing, food packaging, think Pizza boxes, firefighting foams, and many others. Continue reading

After tackling defective hip implants over the past 15 years, another implant manufacturer is under the gun. Affected patients are filing lawsuits against Synovo Total Hip Replacement System (THS). The lawsuits claim that the Synovo THS uses modified components that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved.

What is the Synovo lawsuit about?

As with all the previous lawsuits against hip manufacturers over the past 15 years, this is nothing new. These hip implant companies take shortcuts in their rush to get to the marketplace, do insufficient or incomplete safety testing, find out problems or defects with their product and fail to notify the FDA or the public.

The Synovo hip implant lawsuits are primarily related to issues with the Synovo Total Hip System, which was altered from its original design approved by the FDA. These modifications, made in 2019, have raised concerns about the safety and effectiveness of the implants. Continue reading

Suboxone Teeth Rot. Suboxone is a prescription sublingual film medication used to treat opioid addiction and opioid dependence. Suboxone oral film can be effective in helping patients handle withdrawal symptoms and damp down cravings for opioids, but there are potentially serious side effects noted with its use.

Suboxone Teeth Rot

Suboxone Teeth Rot? Contact Dr. Shezad Malik Law Firm at 214-390-3189.

Dependency. Suboxone contains buprenorphine, a partial opioid agonist, which means it has similar effects as an opioid drug but at a lower level. Buprenorphine changes the way the brain and nervous system respond to pain. Buprenorphine also decreases the pleasurable effects of opioids, making misuse of them less appealing. Suboxone can help reduce withdrawal symptoms and cravings, but it can also lead to physical dependence if not taken as prescribed.

Abuse potential. Although Suboxone has a lower potential for abuse compared to full opioid agonists, it can still be abused, particularly when taken in higher doses or in combination with other substances.

Dental Side Effects. Suboxone has been touted as a safe medication to treat opioid addiction but the acidic components in Suboxone strips have been shown to cause severe enamel erosion and subsequent dental problems, including Suboxone teeth rot. Continue reading

Roundup Weedkiller. In this article, I am going to address Roundup, and its links to cancer specifically non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and provide an update on the current trials and appeals.

Roundup Weedkiller

Roundup Weedkiller linked to Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and other cancers. Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and used Roundup? Call Dr. Shezad Malik Law Firm at 214-390-3189.

The use of the popular herbicide Roundup and glyphosate the main ingredient in Roundup and other weedkillers, is linked to an increased risk of non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and other cancers.

Roundup Weedkiller Glyphosate

The concerns surrounding glyphosate, the active ingredient in many herbicides are multifaceted and involve environmental, health, and regulatory issues.

Glyphosate Health Concerns:

Cancer Risk: The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a branch of the World Health Organization (WHO), classified glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic in humans” (Group 2A) in 2015 based on limited evidence of cancer in humans (from real-world exposures that actually occurred) and sufficient evidence of cancer in experimental animals.

This classification has fueled ongoing debates and legal battles, despite other regulatory bodies, including the EPA, concluding that glyphosate is not likely to be carcinogenic to humans based on their assessments.

Environmental Impact:

  • Biodiversity Loss: Glyphosate’s effectiveness as a broad-spectrum herbicide can lead to decreased plant diversity which can have cascading effects on ecosystems, including impacts on pollinators and other wildlife.
  • Weed Resistance: The widespread use of glyphosate has led to the evolution of glyphosate-resistant weed species, which can become difficult and costly to control, leading to increased herbicide use.

It’s important to note that the context of glyphosate’s use (e.g., adherence to label directions, personal protective equipment usage) and exposure levels are critical factors in assessing its risks.
