Ovarian Cancer Claims Against Talcum Powder
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) is part of the World Health Organization (WHO) and classifies talc that contains asbestos as “carcinogenic to humans”. Based on numerous additional 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 talcum-based powder as a part of their feminine hygiene routine have a significantly higher chance of developing ovarian cancer.
Talcum powder is the focus of cancer lawsuits because of its brand recognition, long use, and marketing specifically for “feminine hygiene” uses. The Shower-to-Shower® Body Powder by Johnson & Johnson® is another product developed about 50 years ago. The company continued marketing Shower-to-Shower® products despite knowing about the research on a possible connection between talcum powder and cancer. Their most popular slogan remained “a sprinkle a day keeps odor away” even when they had the research.
Other companies have also been at fault in some lawsuits, including Whittaker, Clark & Daniels® and Cashmere Boutique by Colgate-Palmolive®. However, Johnson & Johnson’s® products are more popular and have many more lawsuits filed against them.
