Talcum powder was first associated with ovarian cancer in the 1980s because it is generally caused by inflammation around the ovaries. This inflammation increases the risk of developing ovarian cancer.
Although the risk of cancer development, some nation's largest medicines, and cosmetics manufacturers continue to market and sell products based on powder. After years of petitions and negative publicity, some companies agree to remove material considered to be a carcinogen in 2015.
For many consumers, however, it was too late. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer or other injuries related to the use of baby powder, personal hygiene products, or household items that contain talc; call the leading national baby powder cancer attorneys immediately.
You and your family can receive significant compensation for injuries or damages. In February 2016, a jury ordered pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson to pay $ 72 million in damages to the family of a woman who died during a battle with ovarian cancer.
The jury determined that the cancer was directly related to the use of the drug manufacturer of baby talc powder and feminine hygiene products.
At trial, it was revealed that Johnson & Johnson knew about the risk of ovarian cancer since 1997. Johnson & Johnson failed to inform consumers about the risks associated with the powder, according to several lawsuits.
