Could Baby Powder cause your Ovarian Cancer?

Paul FinaA jury awarded $72 Million to Jackie Fox in February 2016. This was after she was diagnosed with ovarian carcinoma. She had been using Johnson & Johnson baby products for many decades. Fox died from the disease while the legal proceedings were being conducted. However, her son completed the case and finally found justice for his mother.

Fox is not the only American woman who believed that talcum powder was safe for feminine hygiene. However, numerous studies have shown that talc can cause ovarian cancer, and Johnson & Johnson has not done enough to warn the public or prevent further deaths. Paul J.

All Women Can Fight Back

According to the Associated Press, more than 1,200 civil lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson related to its talcum products. These include Johnson's Baby Powder, Johnson's Shower-to-Show Absorbent Baby Powder and Johnson's Baby Powder. These cases show that women used baby powder as a personal hygiene product for many years without realizing scientific evidence to prove it to be carcinogenic. These women aren't greedy, litigious, or looking to make a quick buck. These women are fighting for the best for their families and want Johnson & Johnson to be held accountable for their actions regarding baby powder.

The facts: The link between Talcum Powder and Ovarian Cancer

Over the past four decades, several organizations such as the American Cancer Society (ACS) and the World Health Organization have raised many concerns about the safety and efficacy of talcum powder for personal hygiene products for women. These concerns are based on 16 studies that included:

  • A 1989 study in the British Journal of Cancer showed that talcum powder, hysterectomy, and hormonal birth control were all associated with an increased risk of ovarian carcinoma.
  • A 1997 study on cancer found a strong association between baby powder and ovarian carcinoma. There was also a significant correlation between the amount of talcum powder used and the risk of developing cancer.
  • A 1998 study in the American Journal of Epidemiology examined the lives of more than 700 women and found that genital talc powders were likely to be a contributing factor in ovarian carcinoma.
  • Anticancer Research published a 2003 meta-analysis of 16 studies covering 30 years that found that talcum powder increased the likelihood of ovarian carcinoma by 33% compared to a population of nearly 12,000 women.

Johnson & Johnson insists, despite all evidence to the contrary, that their product is of the highest quality, purity, and compliance standards. Johnson & Johnson also believes that ovarian carcinoma is a complicated disease with no known cause.
