Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Lawsuits Continue

Johnson and Johnson’s famous baby powder and Shower To Shower products are under the legal gun for causing ovarian cancer in women. It appears the use of this powder to ” dry Off” on the genital area for over five years is being connected to the developing of ovarian cancer in later years. This is just a long trail of continuous products targeting women and the elderly.

Johnson & Johnson Just Lost   Millions in a Case Linking Talcum Powder With Cancer

Talcum Powder Lawyers Tell Us This Is Just The Tip Of The Iceberg

Johnson & Johnson has been ordered by a court to pay out  for not  warning against potential risks associated with the use of talcum powder and the link to ovarian cancer. Scientific  evidence is still undecided. Yet,  a state court jury in St. Louis, Missouri, decided that there was enough evidence to find the global company was liable for a 62-year-old American woman’s development of ovarian cancer.

Ovarian Cancer Victim Awarded Huge Settlement

Lois Slemp was awarded a payout of $US5.4 million in compensation, with Johnson & Johnson being slugged with a further $US105 million in punitive damages. The manufacturer of the talc considered to have caused the cancer, Imerys Talc, was found to also hold a percentage of responsibility and ordered to pay $US50,000. Slemp’s case has made headlines for its sizeable sum, but hers is just the latest in a series of cases against the company based on the allegation that Johnson & Johnson failed to warn people that using talcum powder near their genitals could cause ovarian cancer.

Other Victims Awarded Talcum Powder  Ovarian Cancer Settlements

In early 2016, several months after plaintiff Jacqueline Fox passed away from ovarian cancer, Johnson & Johnson were required to pay $US72 million in punitive and actual damages to the Fox family.

Talcum Powder Ovarian  Cancer Lawsuits Are Piling Up

More than 3,000 cases against the company have been filed across the US by people who believe not only that toiletry products based on talcum powder raise the risk of women developing ovarian cancer, but that Johnson & Johnson know it. Not all of the plaintiff’s cases have been successful, with Johnson & Johnson persuading a New Jersey court in 2016 to throw out two cases based on a lack of scientific evidence. “The court’s decision today appropriately reflects the science and facts at issue in this litigation,” a spokeswoman for Johnson & Johnson, Carol Goodrich, said in a statement at the time. “Science, research, clinical evidence and decades of studies by medical experts around the world continue to support the safety of cosmetic talc.”

A Long History Of Problems

While a number of juries might be convinced that Johnson & Johnson aren’t behaving as ethically as it should, the research on the matter hasn’t made a convincing case for the scientific community. Talc is a mineral made mostly of magnesium and silicates, often found underground in deposits mixed with small amounts of asbestos. While this sounds bad, ever since 1973, the asbestos is required to be removed long before it makes its way into plastic bottles to sprinkle on the parts of your (or your baby’s) body you want to keep dry. Back in the early 1970s, tissue from patients with ovarian and cervical tumours was found to contain particles of talc, leading to speculation that there was a link between the use of the powder and the cancers.
