The Talc-Cancer Connection

Talc is a mineral found naturally in the environment. However, asbestos is also found in the same environs, and research suggests that asbestos shards can contaminate talc powder products like baby powder. When used regularly for feminine hygiene, any shards contaminating the talc powder can travel into a woman’s reproductive system and become embedded in the tissue. Over time, the particles can cause inflammation, which can lead to the formation of cancerous cells. Thousands of women across the country have allegedly been affected by talc cancers, and many are using the legal system to hold Johnson & Johnson liable for the injuries they have sustained.

Research has shown a potential connection between talc use and ovarian cancer since the 1960s, and by the 1970s, scientists were questioning possible asbestos contamination in baby powder products. Even though scientists are still analyzing and evaluating the risks of talc use, J&J has been promoting its baby powder products as safe and effective for decades. But women and their families are not being silent about the potential risks and dangers of talc use, and they are using our attorneys to ensure their voices are being heard in courtrooms across the country.

J&J Ordered to Pay Billions in Baby Powder Cancer Lawsuits

During the past few years, Johnson & Johnson has been ordered to pay billions out to victims and their families over baby powder cancer injury claims including:

  • $55 million to a South Dakota woman diagnosed with cancer
  • $110 million to a woman in Virginia who developed cancer after baby powder use
  • $417 million to a woman in California who blamed baby powder for her cancer
  • $70 million to a Missouri woman who also developed cancer after talc use
  • $72 million to the family of a woman who died from ovarian cancer
  • $117 million to a man who blamed his mesothelioma on baby powder use
  • $4.6 billion to 22 women who were diagnosed with ovarian cancer after baby powder use
