Concerns about talcum powder use linked to ovarian cancer?
Have you been diagnosed with ovarian cancer? If so, did you also regularly use Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder or Shower to Shower products for feminine hygiene?
Some studies have shown that women who have regularly used talcum powder products in their genital area have a 30% increased risk for developing ovarian cancer. In fact, one study conducted by British researchers back in 1971 found in 75% of all ovarian cancer patients they studied that talc particles were present in the tumor.
Talcum powder ovarian cancer lawsuits
Over 1,200 lawsuits have been filed by women who developed ovarian cancer after using Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder or Shower to Shower talcum powder products for feminine hygiene. In February 2016 a St. Louis jury awarded $72 million to the family of a woman who died of ovarian cancer after using Shower to Shower and Baby Powder products for years. Then in May 2016, another jury awarded $55 million to a woman who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer after also using Shower to Shower and Baby Powder products throughout most of her life.
Court documents in these trials point to internal memos from Johnson & Johnson show that the company knew about the risk of ovarian cancer associated with talcum powder products.
