Ovarian Cancer: Talcum Powder Lawsuit, Baby Powder Lawsuit
Talcum Powder, a Common Ingredient in Baby Powder, Linked to Ovarian Cancer
As early as 1971, researchers identified a link between ovarian cancer and the use of talcum powder. In recent years the American Cancer Society and American Association for Cancer Research have published data that suggests women who use talcum powder products for genital hygiene purposes are at a significantly increased risk of developing ovarian cancer. Products like Shower to Shower by Johnson & Johnson which were specifically marketed for female hygiene purposes, are of particular concern.

Baby Powder Ovarian Cancer Lawsuits
Manufacturers of talc-based products, such as Johnson & Johnson, allegedly failed to inform consumers of the known risks of ovarian cancer when talcum powder products are used in genital hygiene. In fact in 2013 during the first talcum powder ovarian cancer lawsuit, a lawyer for the corporate giant acknowledged that they had known about the risk between baby powder and ovarian cancer for years but chose not to include a consumer warning because they did not think the risk was significant. The plaintiff, who won her case against the large corporation, used talcum powder for decades, which included Shower to Shower body powder by Johnson & Johnson. The jury found that Johnson & Johnson failed to warn users of their talc products of the increased risk of ovarian cancer.
