A third woman was just found by a jury to have developed ovarian cancer
due to Johnson & Johnson talc-based powder and Shower-to-Shower products.
She was awarded more than 70 million dollars.
Johnson & Johnson has been named as a defendant in approximately 1,700
talcum powder lawsuits across the United States for ignoring studies which link its Shower-to-Shower
and baby powder products to ovarian cancer.
The 62-year-old woman used Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder for
feminine hygiene purposes for more than 40 years and was diagnosed with
ovarian cancer three years ago. The evidence was that the woman has about
an 80% chance of passing away in the next two years. She has undergone
radiation, chemotherapy, and surgical procedures.
According to the woman’s lawyer, Johnson & Johnson was aware
of the studies that showed the increased risks of ovarian cancer from
the use of talc. Instead of providing warning labels, the company developed
a strategy to prevent government regulation of their products.
