Talcum Powder Increases Ovarian Cancer Risk by Up to 40 Percent
Studies show that women who use talc-containing products around the genital region for feminine hygiene are up to 40 percent more likely to develop ovarian cancer than women who do not use powder. Talc, a natural mineral, can travel into the body and become embedded within the tissue of the ovaries.
This causes inflammation, which over time can contribute to the formation of potentially cancerous tumors. Because ovarian cancer usually doesn’t produce symptoms, the condition often goes undetected until it has spread throughout the pelvis and belly. By this point, the cancer is more difficult to treat and may be fatal.
This risk has been known as far back as the 1970s, and yet Johnson & Johnson has failed to ever warn consumers of this risk by placing a warning label on its products. The company continues to defend the safety of its talcum powder, but has so far been ordered to pay $127 million in compensatory and punitive damages between only two cases – making sizable settlements in future cases highly likely.
