Talcum Powder Lawsuits
Talcum powder has been a household product for over a century. As many believed the scented powder, commonly referred to as “baby powder,” was completely harmless it quickly became a household staple for woman and infants.
In fact, the scented talcum powder produced by Johnson & Johnson was so commonly used that many women have nostalgically associated the now controversial powder with the memories of their newborn infants. That it is why it has come to a shock to the people who trusted this product the most that Johnson & Johnson may have concealed information regarding its safety.

Talc Powder and Ovarian Cancer
Plaintiffs of talcum powder lawsuits are claiming that prolonged exposure to talcum powder near the genital area caused them Ovarian Cancer. Furthermore, they claim that Johnson & Johnson concealed information for over 40 years that could have possibly saved many women from one of the world’s most dangerous illnesses, cancer. This litigation is compelling because there has been no scientific link proven between the prolonged exposure of talcum powder in or near the vagina and Ovarian Cancer. So then why are so many women in talcum powder lawsuits with Johnson & Johnson?
A Responsibility To Women
According to medical professionals it is very difficult to conduct an accurate study determining if there is a true link between genital exposure to talc powder and Ovarian Cancer. Researchers claim there are many difficulties to overcome in a study like this. The first being that talc is not a medical drug and its usage and dosage vary from person to person. So even with all the unsurety, how is that Johnson & Johnson has been ordered to pay 100’s of millions of dollars in damages to the plaintiffs of the talcum powder lawsuits?
