Ovarian Cancer Cases Caused by Talcum Powder
Our Team Can Fight for You Future: (888) 493-1629
Many women frequently use talcum powder as a feminine hygiene product. However, studies and other cases show that talcum powder is linked to fatal ovarian cancer, which thousands of women suffer from annually.
Additional research shows that the link between Johnson & Johnson’s talcum powder and ovarian cancer was first discovered in 1971. After performing in-depth investigations, researchers found talcum powder particles in the ovarian tissues of multiple women. Still, Johnson & Johnson, along with many other companies known for mining and selling talc, continue to oppose any proofs and research that link cancer to talc use. Consequently, many of these products continue to remain on store shelves—many of which are also left without restrictions or warnings.

Cancer Causing Agents Found in Talcum Powder
Talcum is primarily made using oxygen, silicon, and magnesium. Once combined, this substance is ground into powder and is often used to absorb moisture and reduce uncomfortable amounts of friction. As a result, many people use this product to prevent rashes and to keep specific areas of the body dry. While this product can be useful for such reasons, this product can become extremely dangerous and, in the worst cases, fatal if the product is used near the genitals. Research has shown that these harmful agents can become trapped in the ovaries, resulting in serious inflammation, which can contribute to the growth of ovarian cancer cells. According to the Cancer Prevention Research Journal, when using a talc-based powder on or near the genitals, a woman increases her chances of ovarian cancer by 41%.
