Note: Tylenol (acetaminophen) lawsuits stymied. Will any of us live long enough to see autism allowed in court under any circumstances? The following article is from The Defender, from Children's Health Defense.
The 440 lawsuits brought against Tylenol and generic acetaminophen manufacturers do not have “admissible evidence” to show that prenatal exposure to the medication can lead to autism spectrum disorder or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, a federal judge ruled this week.
The 440 lawsuits brought against Tylenol and generic acetaminophen manufacturers do not have “admissible evidence” to show that prenatal exposure to the medication can lead to autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), a federal judge ruled this week.
The news comes as a blow to the hundreds of families who filed lawsuits alleging their child developed ASD and/or ADHD as a result of the mother taking acetaminophen during the pregnancy.
U.S. District Judge Denise Cote in the Southern District of New York, who is presiding over the cases, in her 148-page opinion wrote that, in the absence of admissible evidence, the District Court will not hear the plaintiff’s expert testimony.
The ruling “effectively kills” the consolidation of lawsuits, Bloomberg reported. The Defender asked lawyers with four of the main firms handling the cases for comment, but they did not respond by our publication deadline.
The lawsuits allege retailers, including Walmart, CVS, Walgreens and others, falsely advertised products that contain acetaminophen as being safe for pregnant women and did not warn them about the risks posed to fetal development.
Johnson & Johnson’s former consumer health unit, now a separate company called Kenvue, told Reuters in a statement it will move to dismiss the lawsuits in light of the ruling. Johnson & Johnson, the original maker of the Tylenol brand, was not named in the suits. Read more here:

The Studies the CDC Refuses to Do
This book is based on over one hundred studies in the peer-reviewed literature that consider vaccinated versus unvaccinated populations. Each study is analyzed, and health differences among infants, children, and adults who have been vaccinated and those who have not are presented and put in context. Readers will find information on:
The infant/child vaccination schedule
Thimerosal in vaccines
Live virus vaccines
The human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine
Vaccination and Gulf War illness
Influenza (flu) vaccines
Hepatitis B vaccination
The COVID-19 vaccine
Vaccines during pregnancy
Given the massive push to vaccinate the entire global population, this book is timely and necessary for individuals to make informed choices for themselves and their families.

The Wuhan Cover-Up: And the Terrifying Bioweapons Arms Race (Children’s Health Defense)
By Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
“Whenever I read, listen to, or debate Bobby, I learn something new and change my mind on at least one or two issues, while vehemently disagreeing with many others. Both the agreements and disagreements stimulate my thinking and emotions, even when they make me angry or concerned. Read him and make up your own minds." —Alan Dershowitz
“The Wuhan Cover-Up will blow out of the water the international disinformation campaign by US and Chinese government officials and their bribed scientists that COVID-19 somehow magically jumped out of the Wuhan wet market. Kennedy’s book will provide the ammunition needed for us lawyers to hold them all legally accountable for this Nuremberg Crime against Humanity.” —Professor Francis A. Boyle, author of the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989
