Talcum Powder

Have you used talcum powder once a day for four years or twice a day for two years, and have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer?

Are you between the ages of 40 and 62?

Do you use Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder or Shower to Shower products?

You may be entitled to compensation.

Every year 15,000 women die as a result of ovarian cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, for over thirty years it has been known that the continuous use of talcum powder near the genital region can increase the risk of ovarian cancer by 30-40%. Talc particles have the ability to move up the reproductive system and to become embedded in the ovarian lining, which causes an increased likelihood of producing tumors. Although talc is not regulated in the United States, Johnson & Johnson failed to disclose this information to consumers by disregarding the warning affixed to the talc minerals that they use to manufacture their products. But with 23 medical studies confirming the association between talc powder and ovarian cancer, it’s time to take action against these manufacturers.

Recently, a St. Louis jury awarded $72 million to a family who lost a loved one to ovarian cancer because of her continuous Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder and Shower to Shower product use. Ten million dollars was awarded for compensatory damages and the other $62 million as punitive damages for failure on behalf of the company to make known the risk of using these product.
