Helping Talcum Powder Users Who Have Contracted Ovarian Cancer

For more than a century, Johnson & Johnson has manufactured and sold talcum powder. Today, Johnson's Baby Powder and Shower to Shower are sold for use by children and adults. While parents frequently use talcum powder on their babies during diaper changes, many women continue to use this product into adulthood.

Unfortunately, there appears to be a link between the use of talcum powder in adulthood and ovarian cancer. In fact, a study published in 1971 showed a connection with an elevated risk of ovarian cancer and talcum powder use. In the 1980s through the present day, additional studies have shown a link between talcum powder use and ovarian cancer. In 2006, the World Health Organization listed talcum powder as a possible carcinogen. Despite these studies, Johnson & Johnson has continued to sell talcum powder to women unaware of these potential risk factors.

In 2016, two separate juries found Johnson & Johnson liable for selling a potentially dangerous product. Currently, thousands of long-time talc users who have ovarian cancer are bringing claims against Johnson & Johnson.
