The Dangers of Talcum Powder

While research is still being conducted to determine the true impact of talcum powder, data has indicated that consistent talcum powder use is linked to an increased risk of ovarian cancer and other kinds of damage to women’s reproductive systems. Medical research linking talcum powder use with ovarian cancer dates back to 1971 when a study discovered talc particles in ovarian tissue among many women suffering from ovarian cancer.

Prior to the 1970s and even today, some talc products have been found to contain asbestos, a known carcinogen. Similar to asbestos, talc is a silicate mineral that, when ingested, has been found to cause chronic inflammation that can eventually lead to the formation of cancerous tumors.

Some medical researchers believe that regular use of talc powder may cause chronic inflammation of the genital area, as the particles travel through the uterus to the fallopian tubes and ovaries. It has been suggested that continuous use of talc products can increase a woman’s risk of ovarian cancer by as much as 30%.

Who Has Been Affected?

For many decades, women thought it was safe to use talcum-based products on sanitary pads, undergarments or on their body directly in order to keep their groin area comfortable, cool and fresh. During this process, the reproductive tracts of many of the women who used talcum powder were exposed to risks.

Any woman who has regularly used talcum powder, which reportedly 20% of American women do, may be at risk of developing ovarian cancer caused by exposure to talc. Although the debate about the true severity of the risks posed by this product still rages on, educating yourself and determining whether talcum powder could be partly or fully responsible for an ovarian cancer diagnosis is your safest bet.

Johnson & Johnson® Failed to Warn About Health Risks

Despite the findings about the severe long-term health risks of talcum powder, Johnson & Johnson® has continuously defended the safety of their product. Women are filing lawsuits across the country alleging that the company knew about the dangers and failed to properly warn consumers about the potential risk of ovarian cancer through their marketing and packaging.

In fact, plaintiffs argue that Johnson & Johnson® knew about the health risks for more than 40 years.
