Horror stories about the use of talc powder have been in the news and you may wonder about the legal issues involved. We wanted to alert you to some important information about talc lawsuits. Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder and Shower to Shower Powder have contained talc for many years. Talc is a soft mineral that can be ground into a fine powder to absorb moisture. Unfortunately, studies have shown that talc can cause serious side effects and research shows that women who have regularly used talcum powder on their genital area may have an increased risk for developing ovarian cancer. With regular use, small particles of the powder may travel through the various female organs and embed in the ovaries which can cause cancer. Ovarian cancer is particularly dangerous because it is difficult to detect. Talcum powder has been used by millions of women over the years to stay dry and feel fresh without knowing the serious cancer risks.
