Johnson and Johnson Ignored Evidence of Risk to Women’s Health, Claims Talcum Powder Cancer Lawsuit

J&J faces about 1,700 lawsuits in state and federal court of ignoring studies of the connection between talcum powder use and ovarian cancer. Through repeated genital use, talc can make its way into the vagina, uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries, these studies claimed.

For example,a 2013 study published in the journal Cancer Prevention Research reported a 20% to 30% increased risk of developing ovarian cancer in women who regularly used talc for feminine hygiene. Recently, a 2015 study published in the journal Epidemiology found that regular use of talcum powder to the genital area increased the risk of developing ovarian cancer by 33%.

Past Rulings For the Plaintiff in a Talcum Powder Cancer Lawsuit

In February 2016, a St. Louis, Missouri jury ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $72 million in compensatory and punitive damages to the family of an ovarian cancer victim whose death the jury believed was related to her use of the company’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower talc-based powders.

In a May 2016 trial, Johnson & Johnson was ordered to pay $55 million to a South Dakota woman who had developed ovarian cancer that she claimed was related to her long-term use of Johnson and Johnson’s talcum powder for feminine hygiene.
