Super soft and quick to adsorb moisture, Johnson & Johnson baby powder has been a household favorite for women and babies for generations. The magic ingredient? Talcum powder which contains the world's softest mineral, talc. Unfortunately, the baby powder and other talc-based products heavily advertised and produced by Johnson & Johnson has also been strongly linked to ovarian cancer.
Talcum Powder & Cancer
So how exactly does talcum powder cause cancer? The repeated application of talcum powder (via baby powder and other products) to the genitalia area can cause the powder particles to travel up the women to her ovaries. There are still a lot of clinical and lab-based studies taking place to draw a more concrete connection but dating back to as early as the 1960's doctors and scientists have found a higher rate of ovarian cancer in women that used talc-based powders than in women that did not.
To date, there have been over 5,500 claims filed in various US Courts against Johnson & Johnson for this issue.
Johnson & Johnson Liability
You have have seen some of the recent headlines around huge personal injury and wrongful verdicts against Johnson and Johnson for their role in contributing to ovarian cancer in their customers. Their liability is not in making women use their product but in putting a knowingly dangerous product on the market without attaching any type of warning to it. And there is a lot of strong evidence out there against the health care company that proves a very essential element to this type of lawsuit- that they knew or should have known and did nothing about it. Because of this knowledge and lack of warning, many of the cases filed against Johnson & Johnson are also seeing huge punitive damages aimed at punishing and deterring this behavior.
Johnson & Johnson is fighting these cases aggressively (and losing most of them) which is one of the many reasons that working with an experienced personal injury attorney is always a good idea if you are suffering some ovarian cancer as a result of using their products.
