California Talc Injury Attorneys for the LGBT Community
Talcum Powder Linked to Ovarian Cancer
Talcum Powder, found in Johnson & Johnson products, has been found to be linked to ovarian cancer. In a February 2016 court ruling, Johnson & Johnson was ordered to pay $72 million to a family of a woman who claimed her fatal ovarian cancer was caused by the company’s use of talcum powder. The woman used the products for personal hygiene purposes, for an extensive amount of time. Little did she know, this would lead to fatal effects. Ovarian cancer can develop when talc particles remain in a woman’s ovaries for an extensive period of time, resulting in inflammation and producing an environment beneficial to the growth of cancer cells.
J&J had been aware of the risks posed by talcum powder for decades, but instead chose to hide it from the public and continued using it in their products. They are now facing over 1,200 lawsuits. Research shows that an estimated 10,000 women have developed ovarian cancer annually as a result of using J&J products containing talcum powder.
