Does Baby Powder Cause Cancer?
Evidence dating back at least three or four decades reveals that talc, a natural mineral and key ingredient in talcum powder, may be linked to the development of ovarian cancer when used in the genital region. When used for this purpose, the particles can travel into the body and lodge into the uterus, causing irritation that can eventually lead to the formation of malignant tumors. While research is not conclusive on whether talc is a human carcinogen, many believe there is enough of a risk that powder manufacturers should place a warning label on their products. Johnson & Johnson has so far refused to do so. Meanwhile, nearly 127,000 women have died from ovarian cancer that may be linked to talcum powder.
Allegations Against Johnson & Johnson
While Johnson & Johnson continues to defend the safety of its product, there are currently over 4,800 plaintiffs who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and who have filed suit against the company alleging that the company failed to properly warn consumers of the risk associated with use of their product. Victims and families nationwide are now taking a stand and fighting back against this injustice.
Johnson & Johnson has been accused of:
- Failure to warn
- Breach of implied warranty
- Manufacturer negligence and conspiracy
- Violating the Unfair Competition Law
- Violating business & professions codes
