Talcum Powder Use and Ovarian Cancer
For years, many women have used talcum powder for personal hygiene, for instance, dusting it between their legs or on sanitary napkins. However, such application near the genitals has been linked to the development of ovarian cancer. The particles in the substance can travel through the uterus and get trapped in the ovaries, which can become inflamed and allow cancer cells to develop.
Recent studies have linked talc use with ovarian cancer, saying it increases the risk of a diagnosis by 30%. However, companies maintain that their talc products are not harmful and continue to sell them. Yet, a report issued by Reuters suggests that Jonhson & Johnson knew for years that its powder wasn’t safe to use, but did not inform the public of potential health issues.
Now, thousands of lawsuits have been filed against companies that manufacture talc-based powders.
Brands that have faced litigation include:
- Gold Bond Medicated Powder
- Shower to Shower
- Johnson & Johnson
- Clubman Pinaud Talc
- Nivea Pure Talc
- McKesson Baby Powder
Juries have awarded victims and their families millions of dollars in verdicts for damages suffered from talc powder use. Most notably, Johnson & Johnson was ordered to pay $4.69 billion to 22 women who developed ovarian cancer after using the company’s talc-based products.
