Talcum Powder: Its Link With Mesothelioma, Ovarian, Lung and Throat Cancer

Since 1971, researchers have collected evidence linking the use of talcum powder and mesothelioma, ovarian cancer, lung cancer and throat cancer. This body of evidence has grown so strong in recent years that two juries have recently awarded plaintiffs with multimillion-dollar awards — one for $72 million and the other for $55 million.

If you or a loved one contracted either mesothelioma, ovarian cancer, lung cancer or throat cancer after using Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder or Shower to Shower products, you should contact an experienced product defect attorney as soon as possible. You may be eligible for compensation for your medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering, and other losses.

The Dangers of Talcum Powder

For years, researchers suspected that talcum powder was linked to mesothelioma, ovarian cancer, lung cancer and throat cancer. They surmise that small amounts of talcum powder used for hygiene purposes eventually traveled through the vagina and the fallopian tubes to the ovaries. Talcum powder can also travel to the lungs and throat.

Many manufacturers changed the formulation of their products to eliminate talcum powder, but Johnson & Johnson continued to use it in its Baby Powder and Shower to Shower products. Johnson & Johnson also failed to warn users of the risks of talcum powder and its link to mesothelioma, lung cancer, throat cancer or ovarian cancer, despite increasing evidence of its dangers. Instead, the company chose to withhold that information.

This reluctance by Johnson & Johnson to disclose the known risks of its products follows a pattern. The company is also in deeply involved litigation involving vaginal mesh products. Johnon & Johnson’s reluctance to disclose the risks of talcum powder is yet one more example of corporate greed taking precedence over the health of its customers.
