Talcum Powder Linked to Ovarian Cancer

Talcum Powder Linked to Ovarian Cancer

Talcum powder was a household staple for many years and widely used by parents for babies. Talcum powder’s safety concerns have been debated since the 1970s; it has been shown to contain asbestos, a known carcinogen that occurs naturally.

In addition, talcum powder is especially dangerous if inhaled or ingested. Some of the side effects of inhalation include difficulty breathing, vomiting, wheezing, coughing, and chest pain. Johnson & Johnson cautioned users to avoid inhalation on the label. Still, consumers believe that the company should have included another label warning users that long-term use could lead to cancer.

Complications of Talcum Powder

Talcum powder is believed to contain asbestos, a known carcinogen, and may cause toxic effects when inhaled or ingested.
Talcum powder has been linked to many diseases, including:

  • Ovarian cancer

Talcum Powder Leads to Ovarian Cancer

The risks of talcum powder use have been debated for years, but Johnson & Johnson adamantly denies that the routine use of talc-based body powder is a possible carcinogen in humans.

Numerous studies have demonstrated a link between talcum powder use and ovarian cancer. It’s believed that the small particles migrate into the vaginal canal into the ovaries, causing chronic inflammation and eventual cancer. Studies have cited between a 30% and 60% increased risk of developing ovarian cancer for women who regularly use talcum powder for personal care.

The minerals that comprise talc don’t break down over time. If the mineral embeds in the reproductive organs, the particles will still be present, and a doctor may be able to locate talc mineral fibers through a tissue biopsy. If these particles are found, they may be able to be used as evidence to support your case.

Most states have time limits that apply to product liability cases, such as the talcum powder lawsuit.
