Does Talcum Powder Cause Cancer, like Ovarian Cancer?

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) announced in 2006 that talcum powder used in or near the genitals is possibly carcinogenic.

In December of 2018, Reuters reported that traces of the toxic and carcinogenic mineral asbestos were found in Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder.

Previous to that, a study conducted in 1971 found talc-like particles in uterine and ovarian cancers. In 1982, a case study linked talc used in the genital region with ovarian cancer.

For many women who used Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder and Shower to Shower, these studies’ results became all too real when they were diagnosed with ovarian cancer following consistent use of talcum powder, leading them to file ovarian cancer lawsuits against the large corporation.

What is Talcum Powder Used For?

Women in particular use talcum powder, specifically baby powder, for:

• Feminine hygiene
• Masking odors
• Antiperspirant (specifically around the genital area)
• Lubricant
• Preventing rashes Keeping skin dry

For many women, sprinkling baby powder on their bodies was part of their everyday routine, no different from brushing their teeth or taking a shower. In fact, Johnson & Johnson advertised their baby powder specifically to women for feminine hygiene purposes. Unfortunately, using Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder and Shower to Shower with such consistency led many women to become diagnosed with various types of cancer, including ovarian cancer and mesothelioma. This became the catalyst of the talcum powder lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson.

Talcum Powder Lawsuit

Thousands of women who used talcum powder products and now have cancer are joining talcum powder lawsuits, going up against Johnson & Johnson to obtain justice and compensation for their preventable suffering.
