Talcum Powder Connected to Ovarian Cancer
Talcum powder is a common ingredient in some of Johnson & Johnson’s most popular products, including Baby Powder and Shower to Shower. Despite growing evidence of the dangers of talcum powder, these products have been marketed as safe and dependable for feminine hygienic use for decades.
Research has shown that when talcum powder is used near the genitals, it can settle in a woman’s ovaries and remain there for several years. This causes the area to become inflamed and can lead to the development of ovarian cancer cells.
Studies have shown that woman who have used talcum powder products for feminine hygiene have a 20 to 30 percent increased chance of developing ovarian cancer.

Previous Lawsuits Filed Over Talcum Powder
Despite evidence and major court rulings, Johnson & Johnson has repeatedly denied any claim that its talcum powder products can cause ovarian cancer and refuses to warn consumers about the potential risk.
However, there have been more than a thousand lawsuits filed against Johnson & Johnson by women who claim the corporation knew that talcum powder use could lead to the development of ovarian cancer.
In a 2013 lawsuit filed on behalf of a woman diagnosed with ovarian cancer, a jury found that Johnson & Johnson did in fact know that its talcum-based products could cause woman to develop cancer. The Jury found Johnson & Johnson liable for conspiracy, negligence and failure to warn women of the risks of using Baby Powder in the genital area. The woman died in 2015 from her cancer.
In Oct. 2016, Johnson & Johnson was ordered to pay a $70 million settlement to a woman in St. Louis who claimed to have developed ovarian cancer from its talc products. The woman stopped using the product three years earlier after she was diagnosed. She was later given an 80 percent chance of dying within two years.
If you or someone you love has been affected by ovarian cancer after long-term use of a talc-based product, you may be entitled to compensation. By filing a talcum powder lawsuit, you will be able to hold manufacturers, like Johnson & Johnson, responsible for the harm they cause to trusting consumers.
