When women use talcum powder for perineal hygiene, it has been found to cause ovarian cancer. A Harvard epidemiologist has stated that as many as 10,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer because of their baby powder use. Ovarian cancer is expected to cause 14,000 deaths in the U.S. this year. The major talcum product manufacturer, Johnson & Johnson, has failed to warn consumers of the risks of talcum powder and ovarian cancer.
In 2013, Johnson & Johnson was sued in federal court by a woman who used the company’s talcum powder and was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. During the court case, it came to light that Johnson & Johnson knew that there was a link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer. Even though the company knew of the link, they Johnson & Johnson did not think it was a good idea to warn the public. Johnson & Johnson once was one of the most trusted companies in America, but the company recently has been in legal battles because of defective, dangerous and recalled products.
