Johnson & Johnson Knew About Ovarian Cancer Risk
Research as far back as the 1970s has shown that talc, the natural mineral
found in talcum powders, can increase a woman’s risk of developing
ovarian cancer by up to 40 percent. Tiny talc particles can migrate into
the body, where it can implant in the tissues of the ovaries and cause
irritation. Over time, this can lead to the formation of malignant tumors.
Since ovarian cancer usually doesn’t present symptoms, it can go
undiagnosed long enough for it to spread through the pelvis and abdomen,
at which point it is much more difficult to treat. In some cases, it can be fatal.
Johnson & Johnson is accused of knowing that their product was unsafe
and yet refusing to add a warning label to their bottles to protect consumers.
So far, the company has been ordered to pay $127 million to end two talcum
powder lawsuits, with more than 1,200 cases still pending. Future settlements
