Talcum powder is a soft, white powder developed from talc, or magnesium silicate, a mineral composed primarily of magnesium, silicon and oxygen. When it is finely ground, talc absorbs moisture and helps reduce friction. These properties make made it widely used ingredient in cosmetics, personal hygiene products and many other common consumer goods.
Pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson, a major talcum powder manufacturer (Baby Powder), was aware of research that presents this serious side effect for its over-the-counter product. However, the company has referred to research into the matter as inconclusive and never has put a warning notice or label on its talcum powder products.
Talcum powder has been found to cause ovarian cancer when used by women for perineal hygiene. Johnson & Johnson, has been accused of failing to warn consumers of the risks of talcum powder. As many as 10,000 women develop ovarian cancer each year as a result of baby powder use, says Harvard epidemiologist Dr. Daniel Cramer. Ovarian cancer is a serious disease and is expected to result in more than 14,000 deaths this year in the United States. Since 1971, more than 20 studies have linked talc powder to ovarian cancer, and, in 2003, an analysis of 16 of these studies found that women using talcum powder were 33 percent more likely to develop ovarian cancer. It has been alleged that Johnson & Johnson, the maker of popular talc-based powders, including Baby Powder and Shower-to-Shower, knew about the ovarian cancer risk since at least 1982, but failed to warn women using these products.
Persons or family members of persons who were diagnosed with ovarian cancer after using talc-based baby powder or body powder products may have grounds to file a talcum powder cancer lawsuit. Filing a lawsuit enables families to seek compensation for medical care, pain, suffering, and loss associated with ovarian cancer. The Talcum Powder Cancer Lawsuit Center offers comprehensive information on baby powder ovarian cancer and baby powder lawsuits, as well as the legal services provided by our talcum powder cancer lawyers.
Do I need a lawyer?
Expert witness fees are very expensive. They can often cost several thousand dollars per day. The expert witness fees must be paid for consulting, which includes reviewing records, examining a patient, and discussing findings with the lawyer, as well as for depositions and for trial. Lawyers who represent plaintiffs on a contingency basis (meaning the lawyer only gets paid if you win) usually hire the experts for the case. Without a lawyer to advance these costs, you may find yourself unable to afford the experts you need to prove your case.
