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.
