Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder Is The Cause Of Cancer In Over 10,000 Women Per Year. Talcum powder has been found to cause ovarian cancer when used by women for perineal hygiene, to prevent or eliminate infection, odor, promote healing, remove secretions, and provide comfort. Johnson & Johnson, a major manufacturer of talc-based baby powder and body powder has been accused of failing to warn consumers of the risks of using their products. It has been reported that over 10,000 women per year develop ovarian cancer as a result of baby powder use, according to Harvard epidemiologist Dr. Daniel Cramer. Ovarian cancer in itself is a serious disease and results in more than 14,000 deaths per year in the United States.
According to Talcum Powder Cancer Lawsuit Center, lawyers for Johnson & Johnson admitted executives had known about the association between baby powder and ovarian cancer for years, but did not deem the risks significant enough to require a product warning. Baby powder cancer lawsuits are just the most recent in a long list of product liability lawsuits resulting from Johnson & Johnson’s dangerous, defective and recalled products. Although they were once a trusted household name, the company’s reputation has deteriorated due to problems with products such as Tylenol, Bausch & Lomb contact lenses, DePuy hip replacement parts, and now talcum powder. People who were diagnosed with ovarian cancer after using talc-based baby powder or body powder products may have the grounds to file a talcum powder cancer lawsuit. Filing this lawsuit enables families to seek compensation for medical care, pain, suffering, and loss associated with ovarian cancer. CLICK HERE —> TO LIKE DAILY BUZZ LIVE ON FACEBOOK!
