Harvard researcher, Dr. Daniel Cramer stated that each year, approximately 10,000 women develop ovarian cancer caused by their use of talcum powder. Our talcum powder lawsuit claims the manufacturers including Johnson and Johnson (and others) failed to warn users of talc of the increased risk of ovarian cancer in women who use these products for personal hygiene. Rubenstein Law is seeking compensation for women who had significant exposure to talcum powder, including Johnson’s Baby Powder and a diagnosis of:
According to Cancer.org in powder form talc absorbs moisture well and helps cut down on friction, making it useful for keeping skin dry and helping to prevent rashes. Talc is often used in cosmetic products including baby powder and adult body and facial powders, as well as many other consumer products. One of the primary producers of talc-based products in the U.S. is Johnson & Johnson. Even though they stopped selling talcum baby powder in North America as of May 2020, they are now facing lawsuits across the country for failing to warn consumers of cancer risks. For decades, talc was ubiquitous to store shelves, and executives aware of the link to cancer did not issue warnings to consumers.
Cancer.org, says talcum powder may cause cancer in the ovaries when the powder is used in the genital area or on sanitary napkins, diaphragms, or condoms if the particles travel to a woman’s reproductive organs during regular use.
Other manufacturers may include but are not limited to: Valeant Pharmaceuticals and Baby Magic Baby Powder. Because talc is widely used in many products, it is important to determine if one has developed cancer as a cause of the powder. The more regular the use of talcum powder by a woman the higher the risk for developing cancer.
Talcum powder may cause ovarian and reproductive cancer in women who use it routinely for feminine hygiene. A 2008 study from Harvard epidemiologist Dr. Margaret Gates, states that women who use talcum powder daily face a 41% increase in risk for ovarian cancer.
