Cervical, Ovarian, Uterine, Vaginal, Vulvar cancer are various types of gynecological cancers women must be made aware of. You must understand your risk factors and the various products on the market that can potentially cause these types of cancer. These cannot be ignored nor can the potential risk of your having used talcum powder for years.
Recently Johnson and Johnson paid 72 million dollars to a woman’s family after she passed away from ovarian cancer. The jury accepted the claim that the woman’s use of talcum powder products for feminine hygiene caused for her ovarian cancer and eventual death. There are no warning labels on Johnson and Johnson’s Baby Powder or Shower to Shower that their these products may be harmful to women if used this way.
This is not a new idea but women have been shocked and are frightened now. If you feel ashamed talking about your private parts then realize these manufacturers used your fear of not smelling fresh to sell this product and never told you about the ovarian cancer risk. It has been reported that over 98,000 women have been diagnosed with gynecologic cancers last year. Many of these were due to ovarian cancer and we do not know how many of them used the “stay dry” talcum powder marketed to them.
Do you still use talcum powder for personal hygiene? How many other products do you use that you have no clue may harm you? The manufacturers certainly did not fess up and you obviously cannot trust them to tell you.
After the Johnson and Johnson fiasco I realized how many dangerous drugs and devices that are massive lawsuits have targeted women. We speak to women every day about the potential risk of using talcum powder and people who have lost a loved one to ovarian cancer and now realize their mother, sister grandmother, wife or loved one used these products right where the particles can travel to the ovaries.
The more I speak with callers about their ovarian cancer and their use of talcum powder products the more I realize how careful we must be and how glad I am my mother pushed old fashioned corn starch. It was also alot cheaper in those days. But, J & J found a great market to go after. The black and Hispanic women who wanted to fit into a white society and smell clean and nice became the ultimate target. They knew that choosing their product, if marketed correctly, had very little to do with awareness of cancer health, and totally due to fear of not smelling like a pretty white princess all day and every day.
Black woman often used talcum powder for her their entire adult life. These products seemed safe, after all, mothers used talcum powder on their babies, right? Using Talcum Powder products were a part of being in with the other girls. Yet, as far back as 2005 Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center did a study about these products. Another study was published in 1997. The studies suggested there might be a connection between talcum powder use and ovarian cancer.
Now we learn the truth thru Talcum Powder Lawsuit TV lawyer ads.

Taxotere Lawyers Filing Hair Loss Lawsuits
In a recent Taxotere lawsuit a woman alleged that her use of breast cancer drug Taxotere (docetaxel) resulted in permanent alopecia, or a total failure of her hair to regrow. Sanofi-Aventis has failed to warn patients that they may not experience hair regrowth after stopping Taxotere.
Taxotere Lawsuits Mount Up
In December of 2015, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration publicly announced numerous adverse incident reports related to Taxotere and permanent alopecia in breast cancer chemotherapy patients.
If these filings continue Taxotere cases may be consolidated in federal multidistrict litigation (MDL)
Talcum Powder Lawsuit Helpline alerts women who didn’t know of the possible link between Talcum powder product use on the pelvic area and ovarian cancer. Talcum powder lawyers claim that if talcum powder is used for years the particles can travel to the fallopian tubes and the ovaries. They can stay there for years and cause irritation which eventually can result in cancer cells. Ovarian cancer rates are highest in women aged 55-64 years. This is the exact age group that Talcum powder was marketed to when they were teenagers and young women.
Johnson & Johnson is now facing more than 1,000 lawsuits from women claiming they knew that the talc in its Baby Powder and Shower to Shower products was linked to ovarian cancer when used in the genital area. They did not warn anyone of this. Both products were marketed extensively for feminine hygiene. . A 1988 ad for Shower to Shower said “just a sprinkle a day keeps odor away.” Others told women: “Your body perspires in more places than just under your arms.”
Is Talcum Powder Johnson and Johnson’s next horror for women? 1000’s of women are still suffering from their vaginal mesh products. The Talcum Powder Lawsuit Helpline receives dozens of calls every day from women who feel their ovarian cancer is from use of these Talcum Powder products.

What Is Talcum Powder?
Talcum powder is made from talc or hydrated magnesium silicate which occurs naturally as a mineral in formations like soapstone. For over 120 years, Johnson & Johnson has marketed talcum powder around the world as a baby powder and for adults to absorb sweat in products like Shower to Shower.
Johnson and Johnson has targeted women to increase sales. “Want to feel cool, smooth and dry? It’s as easy as taking powder from a baby,” was the text in a Johnson & Johnson ad from the 1960s.
In the 1970s, the first studies emerged showing that talc was deeply embedded into ovarian cancers. Johnson & Johnson introduced corn starch alternatives but it continued to offer talc-based products. In 2014 Johnson & Johnson’s annual talcum powder sales were estimated at $374 million.
The Research Is In On Talcum Powder
The World Health Organization reports that talc is “possibly carcinogenic to humans.” Talc is banned in Europe.

It is important for woman between the ages of 40 and 60 who used Talcum powder products to see their doctor and get tested for ovarian cancer.
