Talcum Powder Linked to Cancer

The New York Times reported studies claiming the use of talcum powder is linked with a 44 percent increased risk for invasive epithelial ovarian cancer.

 

Talcum Powder Lawsuits

Talcum powder lawsuits involve claims that the powder is linked to an increased risk of ovarian cancer. One ovarian cancer lawsuit resulted in the jury awarding $55 million to Gloria Ristesund. The award included $50 million in punitive damages and $5 million in compensatory damages. Meanwhile, a February 2016 jury award of $75 million was given to the family of Jacqueline Fox, who died of ovarian cancer at the age of 52. Attorneys for the plaintiff argued in that case that Johnson & Johnson knew its talcum powder was linked to a risk of ovarian cancer but did not warn consumers about that risk. — lawyersandsettlements.com
