Does talc power have asbestos in it? A huge verdict against Johnson & Johnson as well as a asbestos mining company seems to hint at yes. Financial banker Stephen Lanzo III developed asbestos-specific cancer mesothelioma after years of using Johnson & Johnson baby powder. While Johnson and Johnson pointed to other possible points of exposure to asbestos that could have resulted in mesothelioma, the New Jersey jury sided with Lanzo to the tune of $37 Million. And this isn't the end of the deliberation-- next week this same jury will decide whether this multi-million dollar reward 

Business Insider sheds some more light on this huge talc asbestos verdict, "Officials of both companies were worried that asbestos was tainting talc used in baby powder as early as 1969." Evidence in this case included damming internal memos that warned the company that talc may be in this popular baby product. Judgments this size are hard and long fought and then usually fought again after Johnson and Johnson appeals.
