Internal memos suggested Johnson & Johnson executives knew of the risks: one of their medical consultants even compared talc use to smoking. So far, Johnson & Johnson have been forced to pay over $100 Million in damages to their victims. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and have used talcum powder, you may be eligible for compensation.
The particles that make up talcum powder are extremely fine. When applied to a woman’s genital area on a habitual basis, the particles can travel through the fallopian tubes and settle in the ovaries. The ovaries may then become hindered by the presence of talcum powder particles that could then cause cancer cells to form, grow and spread.
A Harvard epidemiologist has stated that as many as 10,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer because of their baby powder use.
A 1999 study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute noted, “Perineal talc use has been associated with an increased risk of ovarian cancer in a number of case-control studies,” and concluded that “perineal talc use may modestly increase the risk of invasive serious ovarian cancer.”
In 2013, the American Association for Cancer Research published findings that talc powder “is associated with a modest 20-30 percent increase in risk of developing epithelial ovarian cancer.”
Since 1971, more than 20 studies have linked talc powder to ovarian cancer. In 2003, an analysis of 16 of these studies found that women using talcum powder were 33 percent more likely to develop ovarian cancer.
At present, both the National Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society consider talc use near the genitals as a “risk factor” for ovarian cancer. Despite this possible link, Johnson & Johnson and other talc powder manufacturers have not placed warnings about this risk on their products.
