Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Lawsuit News

Ovarian cancer has been linked to use of popular talcum powder-based products, such as Johnson's Baby Powder™ and Shower to Shower Body Powder™, adult women under 40. As little as 4 years of regular use of use of talcum powder for perineal dusting can substantially increase the risk of ovarian cancer in adult women.

Johnson & Johnson lost the first talcum powder lawsuit over ovarian cancer in 2013.   Testimony during the trial demonstrated that the company was aware of medical studies demonstrating the link between perineal use of talcum powder products and still did not provide consumers with a warning on this danger.

Attorneys are now investigating cases of ovarian cancer, from which tens of thousands of women have died, where a talcum powder product was used at least weekly for four years or more.   One Harvard epidemiologist estimates that 10,000 women per year contract ovarian cancer due to talcum powder use.
