The Relationship Between J&J Talcum Powder and Ovarian Cancer
There have been more than 20 studies published that show women who have used talc on their genitals are at an increased risk, up to 92% (according to a study performed in 1982) for ovarian cancer. In 1999, another study found that “avoidance of talc in genital hygiene might reduce the occurrence of a highly lethal form of cancer by at least 10%. The study also stated: “Appropriate warnings should be provided to women about the potential risks of regular use of talc in the genital area.”
Cases are currently coordinated in Los Angeles Superior Court, Johnson & Johnson Talcum Powder Cases, JCCP4872, where Mark P. Robinson Jr. serves as co-lead counsel, and in New Jersey Federal Court, Johnson & Johnson Talcum Powder Litigation, MDL 2738.
