Johnson & Johnson Failed to Notify Users of the Cancer Risk.
Juries Have Awarded More Than $4.67 Billion to Victims.
Ovarian Cancer is the leading cause of death from cancer of the female reproductive system. Baby powder, also called talcum powder, is a common household product used by millions of women worldwide. What many people don’t know is that Ovarian Cancer in women can be caused by talc-based products. Today, thousands of people have filed claims against Johnson and Johnson for failing to reveal the potential link between their talcum powder and anincreased risk of ovarian cancer. Johnson & Johnson products have been linked to cancer, including Shower to Shower or Johnson’s Baby Powder. In fact, Johnson and Johnson has already paid hundreds of millions of dollars to women and their families through court cases and settlements.
How is Talc Causing Cancer?
Since talcum powder is made from tiny particles of the natural mineral called talc, they cause inflammation and it is difficult for the body to remove them. A tumor can develop where these particles settle and become stuck in the body. The particles build up over time with regular use as a feminine hygiene product. Minuscule particles may find their way into the body of a woman through her reproductive system and become embedded within the ovaries, the particles can remain in the body for years, even after talcum powder use is discontinued. These particles can cause inflammation in the ovaries and allow cancer cells to form, grow and spread.
