Talcum Powder: An Unknown Danger
Talcum powder has a positive association for most people – baby care. Many parents use talcum powder to absorb moisture and prevent diaper rashes. It is also a common personal hygiene item for women. However, talcum powder can actually prove very dangerous. In the past few years, doctors have made a strong connection between talcum powder and ovarian cancer.
The attorneys at Jason J. Joy & Associates, P.L.L.C., have years of experience advocating for parents and other consumers who suffered because of the use of talcum powder. Our Dallas law firm can work to establish a connection between your use of talcum powder and your illness, then fight for compensation.
Why Is Talcum Powder Harmful?
Talcum powder is composed of tiny particles of a mineral called talc. When someone inhales talc, the particles can settle in the lungs and potentially cause cells to become cancerous. When women use talcum powder on their genitals, the talc particles can travel to the ovaries, contributing to ovarian cancer.
Hold Talcum Powder Companies Accountable
Even though multiple scientific studies have linked talcum powder to cancer, manufacturers continue to produce this potentially hazardous product. Many manufacturers do not provide adequate warnings to consumers.
One way to hold irresponsible manufacturers accountable is through legal action. By filing a claim, you can let these companies know that you are prepared to bring them to justice for their negligence in court. This also sends a message to other talcum companies that they will not get away with creating hazardous products.
