Did You Use Talc Baby Powder?
Have You Been Diagnosed With Ovarian Cancer?
Talcum powder lawyers are filing Talcum Powder lawsuits for women who have gotten ovarian cancer from Talcum Powder.
Think talcum powder and many of us picture chortling babies and smiling mothers changing diapers. Nothing seems more safe and wholesome. And many women use talc products daily, as well, for feminine hygiene and after showering.
Do you remember this famous phrase from Johnson & Johnson’s Shower to Shower ads? “Just a sprinkle a day helps keep odor away.” Well that sprinkle is now resulting in women filing lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson claiming that talc in this and other products led to them developing ovarian cancer. They claim that the they should have been warned.
Johnson’s baby powder was one of the company’s household name products. It has been sold for more than a 100 years. Now they say it can cause ovarian cancer? A recent lawsuit awarded $72 million to a woman whose ovarian cancer could be scientifically linked to use of Talc.
But, you say, I have been using this product for years. Since I was a teenager or younger and they knew and did not tell us? Yes, in the last few decades, studies have suggested a possible link between talc and ovarian cancer.
These studies go back, he says, to a British study in 1971. Researchers reported that microscopic analysis of 13 ovarian tumors found talc particles in 10 of them. Several other studies followed in the early 1980s in the United States and Europe and suggested that women who use talc feminine hygiene products may have up to a 35% higher risk of ovarian cancer than women who don’t those products.
The Johnson and Johnson website proclaims “Few ingredients have demonstrated the same performance, mildness and safety profile as cosmetic talc, which has been used for over 100 years by millions of people around the world.” It goes on to note that talc is used “in a range of other consumer products such as toothpaste, chewing gum, and aspirin.”
