Ovarian Cancer Lawsuits Caused by Johnson & Johnson Talcum Powder
Orlando Defective Drugs Lawyers Ready to Defend You
For many women, talcum powder is a frequently used product for feminine
hygiene. However, recent studies report this product is linked to a fatal
form of ovarian cancer, which occurs in thousands of women annually.
According to research, the link between ovarian cancer and the talcum powder
produced by Johnson & Johnson first occurred in 1971. That year, a
study proved talc particles were found in the ovarian tissues of numerous
women. However, Johnson & Johnson along with companies that mine talc
have managed to fight against such findings. As a result, these
dangerous products have remained on the shelves of stores everywhere. Even worse, most of
these products do not come with warnings or restrictions.
Currently, The Maher Law Firm is reviewing cases involving women who have
developed ovarian cancer after using the talcum powder product made by
Johnson & Johnson.

What Constituents in the Talcum Powder Cause Ovarian Cancer?
Primarily, talcum is made using the following ingredients:
This substance is ground into a powder form. Then, the product can reduce
friction and absorb moisture. For this reason, the powder is used to prevent
individuals from developing rashes and to keep areas of the skin dry.
However, when this product is used on the genital areas, these harmful
particles can travel inside the body where is can become trapped in the
ovaries. When this occurs, a woman can sustain serious inflammation of
the ovaries, which can cause ovarian cancer cells to grow.
In addition, the
Cancer Prevention Research journal states that women increase their risks of ovarian cancer by 41%
when they use talc-based powder near the genitals. Yet, these dangerous
products have not yet been removed from the market nor have they been
regulated or manufactured with warnings attached.
