Talcum Powder Lawsuit Attorneys

Call a St. Louis Product Liability Lawyer 24/7: (800) 391-4318

For years, women have used various talcum powder based products for personal hygiene. Unfortunately, recent reports and studies now show that many talc-based products are causing deadly forms of ovarian cancer. In fact, statistics show that thousands of women are affected annually.

Research determines that the first link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer occurred in 1971 and dealt greatly with Johnson & Johnson’s products. Various studies prove that the talc particles within the Johnson & Johnson products were detected in ovarian tissues of various women. However, at that time, companies producing talc-based products, including Johnson & Johnson, were able to fight against such studies. Consequently, many of these products continued to be available to consumers.

What Harmful Constituents Are Attributed to Causing Ovarian Cancer?

Talcum usually takes the form of a powder-like substance and is prepared using the following ingredients:

  • Magnesium
  • Silicon
  • OxygenTalcum

In most cases, individuals use these talc to reduce friction and to absorb any moisture in order to prevent rashes and maintain dry skin. However, when these products are used on genital areas, the talc particles can move inside the body and become trapped in women’s ovaries. When the talc particles become trapped in the ovaries, the area can become inflamed, causing cancer cells to grow.

The Cancer Prevention Research Journal states that women who apply talc-based product near or on the genitals increase their chances of developing ovarian cancer by 41%. Still, these dangerous products remain on the shelves of stores everywhere and do not provide adequate warnings.
