We have become recently aware of the powerful connection between talcum powders and cancer. Talc powder has particularly has been used by women for purposes of feminine hygiene and is found in a large number of household cosmetic products. What is most alarming is the fact that manufacturers of talc powder, including Johnson & Johnson, have known of such dangers for a number of decades.

The Link Between Talc Powder And Cancer

Suspicions regarding the health risks of using talc powders first arose as early as the 1960s. More recent studies confirm that there is a connection between the use of such products and ovarian cancer. Some experts suggest that the use of talc powers for purposes of feminine hygiene may increase the risks for developing ovarian cancer by over 30 percent. Other studies also suggest there is a connection between the use of talc powder and other cancers. Once applied to the genital areas, it appears talc powders can travel to other parts of the body as well.

While large corporations have long known about the results of such studies, their failure to warn of the dangers and discontinue the manufacture of talc powders is inexcusable. The use of such products likely has led to thousands of individuals suffering from cancer and even dying. Such indifference to the safety of the public is why so many talc powder lawsuits have arisen. Many of these lawsuits resulted in multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements.
