Talcum Powder

Talcum Powder Linked to Ovarian Cancer

“It is not the culture of U.S. medicine to report adverse events to the FDA.”

Dr. David Kessler, Former FDA Commissioner

Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder is a staple in American households.

For decades, millions of women have been using it as a feminine hygiene solution, and to care for their children. Unfortunately, women are now discovering that this all-too-common product is causing epithelial ovarian cancer.

Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder is made of talc. According to the American Cancer Society, regular talc usage in the groin area can increase the risk of ovarian cancer by a whopping 30-40%. In fact, many oncologists report seeing actual talc particles, when viewing epithelial ovarian cancer cells through a microscope.

Women across the U.S. are outraged. Many are seeking financial compensation from the manufacturer.

Johnson & Johnson Continues to Market the Cancer-causing Baby Powder

Johnson & Johnson released baby powder in 1892. It quickly became the go-to product for feminine hygiene and nursery care. The product consists of 99% talcum powder and 1% fragrance. In 1971 scientists discovered a link between talc and ovarian cancer. Yet even today, Johnson & Johnson fails to acknowledge and warn patients about the risk. If you have epithelial ovarian cancer due to using Johnson & Johnson baby powder, you may qualify for financial compensation.

Talcum Powder Lawsuits & Settlement Landscape

The first settlement case took place in 2009 in South Dakota, where three separate doctors confirmed that a woman had talcum powder present in her cancer cells. In a court testimony, Daniel Cramer of Harvard University who studied the issue of talcum powder and ovarian cancer for three decades, stated that talcum powder was likely a contributing factor in 10,000 cases of ovarian cancer annually.

If you or your family member has been diagnosed with epithelial ovarian cancer in the last 10 years, and are under the age of 63, you may be eligible for financial settlement.

I love Walmart. Not only can I pick up my groceries for the week, but I can grab some socks for my kids, put a bag of birdseed in the cart for my parakeets and even purchase a tent if I ever feel the desire to go camping (which isn’t very likely).

What is a Mass Tort Lawsuit?

A mass tort suit consolidates your claim with the claims of other people (plaintiffs) who have experienced harm from the same drug or device. The goal is to create the strongest case that the product was unsafe and caused serious harm to many people. And typically, a greater number of cases makes for a stronger case collectively. This united front usually results in more compensation for each of the plaintiffs.

Transvaginal Mesh Failure

Many mothers had no idea that their lives would change—some irreparably—following a “straightforward” surgery to correct pelvic organ prolapse (POP), a common complication of childbirth causing surrounding organs to bulge or sag into the vagina, putting pressure on the bladder and often inducing stress urinary incontinence (SUI). TVM (also called TVT) has been called a “catastrophic failure” of regulators and the health system to protect women. Many women who have undergone POP surgery using this device have developed acute, crippling pain that is often not taken seriously by their doctors, or worse, many doctors and manufacturer executives have turned female pain into the punchline of inappropriate jokes. Women are uniquely impacted by the attitudes towards pain management in healthcare, and due to the implant’s astronomical failure rate (roughly 1 in every 15 procedures) must become proactive advocates for themselves.
