Talcum Powder – Ovarian Cancer
Talcum powder is a commonly used over-the-counter healthcare product used by millions of people each year for a wide range of applications. The soft white powder is directly derived from the mineral talc, also known as magnesium silicate.
Possible Personal Injury: Cancer
Talcum powder usage is associated with high potential for risk of personal injury in the form of ovarian cancer and development of serious respiratory conditions. Recent studies in the Cancer Prevention Research journal point to a 20-30% increased risk of developing ovarian cancer with talcum powder usage.
In July 2018, a jury in Missouri ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $4.69 billion to 22 women who said the company’s talcum powder products caused their ovarian cancer. The company is currently battling more than 9,000 more lawsuits in state and federal courts over the question of whether talc-based products like Shower-to-Shower and Johnson’s Baby Powder cause ovarian cancer.
