Studies have linked talcum powder use to ovarian cancer, mesothelioma and other cancers.
If you have been harmed by talc powder usage, it is important to call me today!
Millions of people have used talcum powder for personal hygiene for years & years. Cancer typically results after long-term exposure to talc – even a small amount of asbestos found in talc powder can result in a deadly diagnosis of ovarian cancer or other cancers.
According to drugwatch.com:
- In the early 70s, a possible link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer was first recognized. Researchers found particles of talc in ovarian and cervical tumors.
- A 2007 case report in the journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology noted the presence of talc in the pelvic lymph nodes of a 68-year-old woman with stage III ovarian cancer. The patient had sprinkled talcum powder on her genital area every day for 30 years.
- A 2016 study led by Cramer suggests that women who regularly dust their genital region with talc have a 33 percent higher risk of developing ovarian cancer than women who don’t use baby powder.
- A 2015 study by Dr. Roberta Ness had similar findings. It concluded that talc use boosts a woman’s ovarian cancer risk by 30% to 60% and eliminating the use of talcum powder could protect more than a quarter of women who develop ovarian cancer.
You have legal rights! You should not have to suffer the consequences of an asbestos-related disease alone! Talcum powder manufacturers such as Johnson & Johnson are being held responsible for billions of dollars to compensate those that were injured by asbestos-contaminated talc products.
