What is Talcum Powder?

Talcum powder (talc) is best-known as an ingredient in baby powder. It is also an ingredient in thousands of cosmetics, feminine hygiene products, contraceptives (condoms and diaphragms), deodorants, anti-chafing products, and more. Johnson’s Baby Powder is among the most popular talcum powder products.

Studies Explore Talcum Powder and Cancer

The first study linking talc and ovarian cancer was published in the 1970s, when researches who examined cancerous ovarian tissue discovered talc fibers. Since then, numerous studies have been published on the issue, although experts do not agree on whether there is a causal connection between talc and ovarian cancer.

Talcum Powder Lawsuit Information

Women who used talcum powder and developed ovarian cancer are pursuing lawsuits claiming that makers of talcum powder products failed to warn of the risks associated with these products. If you would like more information about a talcum powder lawsuit, contact Clark & DiStefano for more information. All consultations are free, confidential, and without any obligation on your part.

Some cases settle early in the claims process, but it is not expected that there will be early talcum powder settlements. However, the trials that have taken place to date may give the parties an idea of the types of evidence and arguments that will be made and how juries will respond. After additional cases have been tried, the parties may be in a better position to determine whether a case can be settled.

It is expected that a talcum powder settlement will follow this pattern, although the outcome of any case is never guaranteed and past results are not necessarily predictive of future outcomes.

Talcum Powder Timeline | Clark & DiStefano

At least 20 scientific studies dating back to 1971 have linked the use of talcum powder to ovarian cancer.  

The World Health Organization classifies the perineal (genital) use of talcum-based body powder as possibly carcinogenic to humans.

Based on numerous studies involving thousands of individuals, women who used talcum products are 30% more likely to develop ovarian cancer.

This means that women who regularly use talc-based powder as a part of their feminine hygiene routine have a one in 50 chance of developing ovarian cancer.  

So why do people still use it?

Manufacturers of talcum-based products such as Johnson & Johnson have known about the link between talc and cancer for decades, yet have FAILED TO WARN CONSUMERS ABOUT THESE RISKS.
