Women who regularly use talcum baby powder on their genital area increase their risk of ovarian cancer by 24%, according to new research. This information is highly disturbing considering that nearly 40% of women are said to regularly use baby powder for personal hygiene after bathing and showering. Some of the most popular talc powder products used are Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower.
The first baby powder lawsuit to go to trial over ovarian cancer claims occurred in October 2013. The plaintiff accused Johnson & Johnson of failing to warn her that Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower could cause ovarian cancer. Other baby powder cancer lawsuits are being filed now against companies for failing to warn about this baby powder danger.
Baby Powder Danger: Talcum Powder and Ovarian Cancer
The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2014, about 21,980 new cases of ovarian cancer will be diagnosed and 14,270 women will die of ovarian cancer in the United States alone. The exact number of these ovarian cancer cases that are linked to talcum baby powder use is unknown, but meta-analysis of data pooled from eight separate studies found that out of 8,525 women diagnosed with ovarian cancer, nearly a quarter used baby powder after bathing or showering.
Researchers warn that talcum particles applied to the genital area can travel into the body and trigger inflammation, “allowing cancer cells to flourish.” These tiny particles have been found deep inside the pelvis and ovaries of some women, and can last inside the body for years. It is estimated, for example, that it would take eight years for one particle of talc in the lungs to dissolve. Some experts say talcum powder is chemically similar to asbestos, which is linked to causing a deadly form of lung cancer called mesothelioma.
This baby powder danger was widely unknown by consumers for decades, putting hundreds of thousands of women at risk for ovarian cancer. A number of product liability lawsuits are being filed against baby powder manufacturers like Johnson & Johnson for failing to warn about the danger of baby powder cancer.
A free class action lawsuit investigation has been launched to help women and their families pursue compensation for their injuries and medical bills.
