Studies show that talcum powder is linked to Ovarian cancer and has long been linked with potential risks associated with long-term talc use since 1971.
Researchers discovered that talc particles were found on 75% of ovarian tumors and that there is a 33% increased risk for women who regularly used talcum powder products for feminine hygiene for developing ovarian cancer.
Various medical studies and tests suggested talc particles enter through the vaginal opening, move into the cervix and uterus, and continue through to the fallopian tubes until they reached the ovaries.
Ovarian cancer is rarely diagnosed in its early stages because it mimics many of the symptoms associated with menstrual cycles and other gynecological problems. Typically, Ovarian cancer symptoms are identified after cancer has metastasized (spread to other areas of the body).
Women who have developed Ovarian cancer often experience a loss of fertility because their ovaries must be removed.
Ovarian Cancer is a deadly disease that claims the lives of more than 14,000 women each year in the U. S.
Despite the overwhelming medical research, manufacturers failed to adequately warn consumers of the link between long-term use of talcum powder on genital areas and the elevated risk of developing Ovarian cancer. Thousands of life-long talc users may have been diagnosed with Ovarian cancer without being aware of the connection.
There are more than 1,200 lawsuits pending in state and federal courts by women who claim that they developed Ovarian cancer after using Johnson & Johnson’s Talc-containing baby powder and other talcum powder products.
