Several studies have shown a higher risk of ovarian cancer for women who use talcum powder for personal feminine hygiene. Despite this known link to a carcinogen, companies like Johnson & Johnson have resisted efforts to warn consumers and to be held accountable. To date, thousands of plaintiffs are seeking compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages.
If you or a family member used talc-based products such as Johnson & Johnson's Baby Powder and Shower to Shower and have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, you may be entitled to compensation. A talcum powder and ovarian cancer lawsuit lawyer with Tosi Law LLP will review your case for free.

Talcum Powder Increases Risk of Ovarian Cancer, Many Studies Find
Talcum powder is made with talc, a soft mineral that has magnesium, silicon, oxygen, and sometimes asbestos. Asbestos is a known carcinogen. Many studies have found a link between talc products used for feminine hygiene and an increased chance of getting ovarian cancer. As far back as 1971, researchers published a report linking talcum with ovarian cancer in the International Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
More recently, research found in the U.S. National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health revealed that daily use of talcum powder in the genital area may increase the chance of getting ovarian cancer by 33 percent. Although not all talc products contain asbestos, the American Cancer Society advises that women should not use talc-based products in the genital area.
Johnson & Johnson Is a Prominent Defendant in Many Lawsuits
Johnson & Johnson has been the target of many civil actions for its name brand baby powder and other talc-based products. Given the many scientific studies on the link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer, there is reason to believe that Johnson & Johnson has known about this risk for decades but allowed millions of women to continue to believe the product was safe.
