Facts About Talcum Powder and Ovarian Cancer

  • Ovarian Cancer There Is Growing Evidence of a Causal Link Between the Use of Baby Powder and Cancer — A case-controlled study in the May 2016 issue of the Journal Epidemiology reported on the link between talcum powder and cancer finding that women who routinely applied talc powder to their genital areas had a 33% higher risk of developing ovarian cancer.
  • Baby Powder and Ovarian Cancer: What the Experts Are Saying — The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classifies the genital use of talc-based powder as “possibly carcinogenic to humans” relative to ovarian cancer.
  • Prospective Study Identifies Increased Risk of Serous Ovarian Cancer With Talc Use — A study published in 2000 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute concluded that “perineal talc use may modestly increase the risk of invasive serous ovarian cancer” — the most common type which accounts for approximately two-thirds of diagnosed cases.
  • Talc Use and Associated Risk of Endometrial Cancer — The results of an analysis of 66,028 women published in 2010 in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention suggested “perineal talcum powder use increases the risk of endometrial cancer, particularly among postmenopausal women.”
  • A “20% to 30% Increase in Risk of Developing Epithelial Ovarian Cancer, Including Serous, Endometrioid, and Clear Cell Tumors” was suggested with genital talc powder use in a pooled analysis of eight case-control studies published in 2013 in the journal Cancer Prevention Research.
  • Talc and Asbestos — During the formal “discovery” process in recent litigation involving Johnson & Johnson, documents have come to light that reveal company concerns over asbestos-contaminated talc date back several decades and that the company waged a fierce campaign to suppress data, test results, scientific papers and other information that talc in its Baby Powder® contained asbestos. That Johnson & Johnsons Baby Powder® and Shower to Shower® body powder, as well as other brands of talc-containing powders may have been contaminated with asbestos, has re-focused much of the nationwide litigation. Though most asbestos litigation and claims focus on work, military and industrial-related exposure to asbestos and asbestos-containing products as causing mesothelioma, ever-increasing recent litigation is now focusing on the link between asbestos, talc and ovarian cancer.

Holding Irresponsible Parties Accountable

  • Internal company documents disclosed during a recent trial in St. Louis indicate that many years ago, and with full knowledge of the results, Johnson & Johnson engaged in a campaign to discredit scientific studies which demonstrated that long-term, frequent, genital application of talc-containing powder by women posed over a 30% increase in the risk of developing ovarian cancer.

Financial Help

Financial Consequences of Personal Injury

  • The financial burdens resulting from personal injury can be substantial and include the costs of hospitalization, surgery, doctors, rehabilitation, physical and occupational therapy, travel, prescription medications and other items. In addition, there is likely pain and suffering and oftentimes a loss of current and future income, of family and spousal consortium, and of the enjoyment of pre-injury activities and mobility. In cases of severe and/or permanent injury, the future costs of care, treatment, maintenance and support can be overwhelming.
  • Insurance may only go so far in covering these costs and losses. Legal action may be the only way to protect yourself and your family to obtain adequate moneys to address your needs and secure your and your family's future.
Protect your Rights

Protect Your Rights

  • Personal injury claims, including those for product liability and negligence, are subject to various statutes of limitation. These laws limit the amount of time within which a claim for monetary damages may be brought against the company or person responsible for the injuries. Consequently, acting promptly to protect your, or a loved one's, legal claims and rights is imperative.
  • Statutes of limitation vary from state to state. Generally, they can begin to run from either the date of your injury or the date you first discovered that the injury may have been caused by a defective product. These are important distinctions that may impact your legal rights.
  • If you or a loved one suffered a drug or medical device injury or a type of personal injury claim that we are investigating, we welcome the opportunity to talk with you.
