Is there a link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer?

 

According to a recent Harvard study, there is a 41% higher risk for women to develop ovarian cancer if they use talcum powder in the genital or perianal region. 

 

“As many as 10,000 women develop ovarian cancer each year as a result of baby powder use,” says Harvard epidemiologist Dr. Daniel Cramer. Ovarian cancer is a serious disease anticipated to result in more than 14,000 deaths annually, in the United States.

Asbestos in Talc

 

What’s worse is that Johnson & Johnson’s talc has been known to contain asbestos, which causes Mesothelioma, cancer of the protective lining of many internal organs in the body. 

 

If you or a loved one were diagnosed with ovarian cancer or mesothelioma and have a history of talcum powder use, then you may be eligible for financial compensation.

In December 2018, Reuters released a report asserting that Johnson & Johnson covered up the presence of asbestos in the talc their baby powder for decades.

 

A jury ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $55 million to a woman who claims talc in the company’s baby powder caused her ovarian cancer.

On Monday, a jury in St. Louis, awarded Gloria Ristesund $5 million in damages and $50 million in punitive damages, Reuters reported.

The verdict comes months after a jury ordered the company to pay $72 million to the family of an Alabama woman who died from ovarian cancer allegedly caused by using the company’s Baby Powder and other products which contained talc.

Mesothelioma is a deadly form of cancer.

Mesothelioma is cancer of the protective lining of many internal organs in the body. It typically occurs in the lining of the lungs, chest, abdomen, or heart. The only medically known cause of mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos. Symptoms may not develop for 20-50 years after exposure.

 

What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a fibrous mineral which, before 1980, was used in thousands of manufacturing products. It may be found in roof shingles, flooring felt, pipeline wrap, vinyl floor tile, corrugated sheet, clutch facings, drum brake linings and many other materials.

Where you unknowingly placed at risk?

Exposure on a day to day basis when working with materials containing asbestos created a risk most employees knew nothing about. Asbestos dust particles, when released into the air,  were inhaled or swallowed. An increased risk of developing mesothelioma has been found in people who have worked in many different occupations such as:

  • ship building

  • brick laying

  • plastering

  • construction

  • roofing

  • auto mechanics

What’s worse is that family members living with workers exposed to asbestos also have an increased risk of mesothelioma due to exposure to the dust on the clothing, shoes, and hair of asbestos workers.
