Thousands of women throughout the United States have filed talcum powder lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson. Lawsuits have also been filed in Jackson Mississippi. Talcum powder is a popular cosmetic product that has been used for over a hundred years, so the evidence that shows a link between baby powder and ovarian cancer has generated concerns for women around the world.
Johnson & Johnson claims talcum powder is completely safe to use. However, recent research and studies tell a different story. Studies in the 1970s discovered talcum powder particles in ovarian cancer cells and other studies found there was an increased risk of cancer if baby powder was used for feminine hygiene.
Some women have already received compensation from their talcum powder lawsuits. Johnson & Johnson has had to pay almost $200 million dollars in compensation.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and you believe it could have been caused by long term use of talcum powder, you could be eligible to file a claim.
