Research has shown an association between talc powder and ovarian cancer for decades. Apart from this research, the pharmaceutical company Johnson & Johnson continues to produce and sell powder products and claim that they pose no risk to the health of consumers.
If you or someone you love uses powder and you have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, cervix, or other forms, contact lawyers today to file a talcum powder litigation. They will carefully review your case and determine whether you have the right to sue for cancer.
"Powder" is a fine white powder made from talc, a natural mineral that contains magnesium, silicon, and oxygen. Despite organic powder, scientists believe that it becomes very cancerous after treatment for use in health products.
In 1971, an extraordinary scientific study published in the prestigious medical journal described scientists who discovered tiny powder particles embedded deep in the cells of several ovarian tumors.
Another medical study in 1982 found that women who used talc for female hygiene during ovulation were 92 percent more likely to develop ovarian cancer.
Despite decades of evidence from various scientific studies, Johnson & Johnson has never warned about the potentially life-threatening effects of using talc powder.
Many victims believe that companies must be prosecuted if they do not label Baby Powder® and Shower to Shower® products with warnings.
There is substantial evidence that the company knows the relationship between powder and ovarian cancer, but continues to produce and promote talc-based products as a safe and effective way to "prevent odors" when used as part of a daily hygiene routine.
