If you’re a woman who uses talcum powder without giving it a second thought, it may be time to think twice. Talc has been linked with an increased risk of ovarian cancer. Multiple studies have confirmed this connection, and juries across the country are now holding talcum manufacturers responsible for cases of ovarian cancer linked to the product.
In March 2019, a California jury awarded a $29 million verdict to a woman who sued Johnson & Johnson over allegations that the company’s talcum-based baby powder contained cancer-causing asbestos. This followed a 2018 Missouri jury verdict against the company for $4.69 billion in favor of 22 women who claimed the product gave them ovarian cancer. It is estimated that there are over 10,000 lawsuits currently pending against Johnson & Johnson for talcum-related claims.
