Talcum Powder

Johnson & Johnson executives have known since the early 1970’s that its talc products contained asbestos fibers and that exposure to asbestos fibers can cause ovarian cancer. Johnson & Johnson failed to warn consumers of these findings and the risks associated with using their talc products.

There is evidence that women that have used talcum powder, i.e. Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder and/or Shower to Shower, have a higher incidence of developing ovarian cancer. Women diagnosed with ovarian cancer who have a history of regular use of these products should consider the exposure to talc as a potential cause of their cancer.

Gold, Khourey & Turak is reviewing claims from women who have used Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder and/or Shower to Shower and have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. We offer free consultations, and we do not charge a fee until we win your case. Contact our office today at (304) 845-9750.

WHAT IS TALCUM POWDER?

According to the American Cancer Society, Talcum powder is made from talc, a mineral made up mainly of the elements magnesium, silicon, and oxygen. As a powder, it absorbs moisture well and helps cut down on friction, making it useful for keeping skin dry and helping to prevent rashes.

In its natural form, some talc contains asbestos, a substance known to cause cancers in and around the lungs when inhaled.
