Talcum Powder Found to Increase Ovarian Cancer Risk

Lawsuits are being filed against Johnson & Johnson, who has failed to acknowledge that talcum may cause ovarian cancer. The company maintains that its products are all safe, but the number of plaintiffs continues to increase.

FDA Investigating Link Between Talc and Ovarian Cancer

“The FDA announced in 2016 that it would conduct its own investigation into the cancer nexus, a move the agency says was prompted by both the suits and the nearly 1,000 complaints it has received about talc,” shared Prevention Magazine.

Link Revealed for Years Between Talc and Cancer

Today, thousands have filed claims against Johnson & Johnson for their failure to disclose the possible link between their talcum powder and a heightened risk of ovarian cancer. Daniel Cramer, head of the Obstetrics and Gynecology Epidemiology Center at Brigham, Women’s Hospital in Boston and a professor of epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and a paid expert for plaintiffs in the lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson, said that he first identified the potential link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer in 1982, which he said lead to the medical director of Johnson & Johnson contacting him to say that using talcum powder as a feminine product is harmless.

Cramer added. “He was very concerned I not spread adverse publicity.”
