Talcum Powder Increases Ovarian Cancer Risk by 33 Percent

Posted By Mirman, Markovits & Landau, P.C. || 11-Apr-2016

Studies show that talcum powder products used in the perineal region increase a woman’s chances of developing ovarian cancer by 33 percent. Evidence of this link has been known for more than four decades, but a jury has recently found that Johnson & Johnson, manufacturer of talcum baby powder and Shower-to-Shower powder, failed to warn consumers in an effort to protect their own interests.

Talcum Powder Lawsuits Filed Across the Country

Johnson & Johnson has been named a defendant in hundreds of lawsuits around the country alleging that they failed to adequately warn consumers of the risks associated with use of their product. In early 2016, the family of an Alabama woman who died of ovarian cancer linked with talcum powder usage was awarded $72 million in compensation.

Talcum or “talc” is a natural mineral that is difficult to remove from the body. Using talcum powder products near the genital region allows particles to travel into a woman’s ovaries, where they can embed in tissue and cause inflammation and the growth of cancerous tumors. The American Cancer Society and the National Cancer Institute have acknowledged that the use of talc-containing products near the genitals as a significant risk factor in the development of ovarian cancer.
