Does talcum powder cause ovarian cancer?

| Mar 11, 2016 | Products Liability |

Are the products you use on a day-to-day basis safe?

One common cosmetic product, talcum powder, can be found in millions of households across the United States.

But several studies show the dangers of talcum powder use, specifically for females who use powder in the genital area and have done so for years.

Repeated use of talcum powder on the genitals over time has been shown to increase a woman’s risk for developing ovarian cancer by 33 percent. This risk has been known for decades, but Johnson & Johnson, a leading talcum powder producer, has done little to protect consumers. It has only warned consumers to avoid inhaling the product and getting it in the eyes.

Why does Johnson & Johnson baby powder cause ovarian cancer?

Several studies have shown the carcinogenic effects of talc. When the powder is used frequently on the female genitals, the talc can travel into the reproductive system. This can cause chronic inflammation and eventually lead to cancer.

Unfortunately, thousands of women have been using such powder for years. Women who have developed ovarian cancer caused by talcum powder use may have legal recourse. In a recent case, the family of a woman who died from ovarian cancer was awarded $72 million in a jury trial.
