In 2006, the International Agency for Research on Cancer officially labeled talcum powder a “possible human carcinogen.” A growing body of research found that talcum powder may be responsible for the development of cancer — specifically in women — when the powder is used on the genitals. However, despite raising alarm, not a single company that sells talcum powder products did anything. On top of that, there was no reaction from any federal agency. As a result, a number of women suffered — and died from — various cancers, including ovarian, peritoneal and/or invasive fallopian tube cancer. Why talcum powder, or talc, causes cancer isn’t fully understood, but some suspect that it causes inflammation within the reproductive tract, and this inflammation leads to cancer development. As people began to piece the puzzle together, thousands of lawsuits were filed against Johnson & Johnson, Valeant Pharmaceuticals, Colgate-Palmolive, Mennen, and others who produced various talc-based products, including Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder and Shower to Shower. As more filed, it became clear that the various companies knew the risks associated with talcum powder and yet frankly, they put profits before customers’ safety! Studies found that using talcum powder on the genital region for a period of four years or more greatly increased the risk of developing cancer. The risk is higher when used during a woman’s active menstrual cycle. Many women between the ages of21 and 80 have been diagnosed with ovarian, peritoneal and or invasive fallopian tube cancer. In many of these cases, diagnosis occurred after the International Agency for Research on Cancer began calling for action. If you or a loved one has had their life turned upside down by talc exposure using Johnson & Johnson or another manufacturers talc-based products, which caused development of ovarian, peritoneal and/or invasive fallopian tube cancer (diagnosed prior to 2004), there are legal options to try and obtain fair compensation for the injuries.
