Talcum Powder is one of the most common hygiene products on the market. Its ability to absorb moisture and reduce rashes has contributed to its popularity amongst consumers for decades. Talcum Powder is made from Talc, a seemingly noncomplex combination of magnesium, silicon and oxygen.
Since the 1970’s there has been much speculation amongst researchers that there may be a link between Talcum Powder and the risk of developing Ovarian Cancer.
A study conducted in 1971 discovered that Talc was in 75% of ovarian tumors. Allegations have recently surfaced claiming that Johnson & Johnson knew about the possible link between Talcum Powder products such as Johnson's Baby Powder and Shower to Shower and the risk of being diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer, but failed to properly warn the general public of the potential Ovarian Cancer risk.
In 2013 the first Talcum Powder lawsuit was won in federal court against Johnson & Johnson. This benchmark lawsuit gives hope to the possibility of financial compensation and product accountability to the thousands of women who have been diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer after using a Talcum Powder product. Due to the popularity of Talcum Powder there are thousands of potential claims that could be filed against Johnson & Johnson due to their negligence.
