Johnson & Johnson is being sued by a man who alleges his wife died of ovarian cancer after years of using talcum products marketed by the company and bought in stores in Los Angeles County.

Johnson and Johnson is seeking to dismiss a Talcum Powder lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County on May 25th. An ovarian cancer lawsuit was filed by the husband of a woman who died from Talcum Powder related ovarian cancer in 2012. Johnson & Johnson is claiming that there has nit been enough evidence to show that the woman ever purchased or used Johnson & Johnson’s talcum powder in Los Angeles, or developed or was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in Los Angeles, California. (Case No. BC617311).
You can now add Talcum Powder to the long list of drugs and devices harming woman. Johnson’s Baby Powder is an old staple. Women used it for years to ” dust off” in the pelvic area. Talcum powder is now considered to be a possible cause of a a fatal ovarian cancer diagnosis.
What Is The Link Between Talcum Powder and Ovarian Cancer?
Talcum powder is made from talc. Talcum powder has been used by women for years on private areas. Johnson & Johnson has marketed Shower-to-Shower body powder to women with the slogan: “Just a sprinkle a day helps keep odor away.”
Did you dust your private area or their sanitary napkins with talcum powder?
Can Talcum Powder Cause Ovarian Cancer?
Talc contains asbestos. Asbestos causes cancer in humans. In 1973, federal law has prohibited the use of asbestos in consumer products containing talc. Recent studies have linked asbestos-free talcum powder to an increased risk of ovarian cancer. Studies suggest that women should not use talcum powder as an intimate hygiene powder because of its link to ovarian cancer. Any woman diagnosed with ovarian cancer is urged to consider the possible link to talcum powder and contact the Talcum Powder Lawsuit Helpline today.
They Knew It As Early As 1971
In 1971, scientists concluded there was a possible connection between the dusting of female genitals with talcum powder and ovarian cancer. They advised that talc particles entered a woman’s reproductive tract through the vagina and traveled through the cervix into the uterus, then moved through the fallopian tubes to the ovaries. The Lancelet journal reported that a majority of ovarian tumors had particles of talc deeply embedded in them. Ovarian cancer often goes undetected until it has spread to the pelvis and stomach. At this late stage, ovarian cancer is more difficult to treat and can be fatal.
That study was followed by another published in 1982 in the journal Cancer, which provided supporting research linking the powder and ovarian cancer. Since then, more than 20 studies showed similar cause-effect relationships.
The Proof Is Out In The Open- But They Knew It For Years
The World Health Organization and the International Agency for Research have issued warnings about the use of talcum powder in the genital area resulting in cancer.
Talcum Powder Lawyers Win Lawsuit
Johnson & Johnson paid $72 million to the family of a woman whose death from ovarian cancer was linked to her use of talc-based Baby Powder and Shower-to-Shower for years.
The Talcum Powder lawsuit claimed that Johnson & Johnson knew of this link between the talc in its powder products and ovarian cancer, but failed to warn consumers about this danger for decades. The woman whose family filed this product liability case against Johnson & Johnson had used the powders for feminine hygiene for more than 30 years but wasn’t diagnosed with ovarian cancer until three years ago. She died at age 62.
