MANUFACTURERS MAY HAVE KNOWN OF CANCER RISKS AND FAILED TO WARN CONSUMERS
According to research reported in the Journal of Epidemiology, regular use of talc-based powder in the genital area may increase a woman’s chance of developing ovarian cancer by as much as 30%. Additional research conducted by Harvard Medical School professor, Dr. David Cramer, and subsequent medical journals have bolstered these findings. A recent study published by Cancer Prevention Research confirms that women who regularly use talc-based products may have a 20-30% higher risk of developing ovarian cancer.
Despite these studies and this information, consumers were not warned of the danger.
THE DANGER OF TALC AND OVARIAN CANCER
Women throughout the United States may have developed ovarian cancer from use of talc body powder. Talc may migrate into the fallopian tubes, uterus, and ovaries. Talc that remains in this tissue can cause inflammation leading to cancer. Talc, which shares chemical similarities to asbestos which has been known to cause mesothelioma, a form of lung cancer, is a main ingredient in Johnson’s & Johnson’s Baby Powder, and Johnson’s & Johnson’s Shower-to-Shower Body Powder.
