There have been countless lawsuits, both past and present, that reflect how manufacturers of Talcum Powder—such as Johnson & Johnson—have failed to warn their users about the harm of talc-based products. These products, mainly used for personal hygiene, have been linked to an increased risk of cancers, including ovarian cancer and mesothelioma.
Many lawsuits further claim that these manufacturers have known about the link between cancer and use of their talc products for upwards of 40 years. Indeed, more than 20 scientific studies have been conducted which have shown a link between the application of talcum powder to genitals and ovarian cancer.
Internal records from J&J have now been discovered which show that J&J has known about these dangers for decades, but intentionally decided not to disclose these dangers to their consumers. This leaves individuals who have used these products for decades at a severely increased risk of developing deadly cancers linked to talc products—such as Baby Powder.
