Johnson & Johnson Products Containing Talcum Powder Are Linked to an Increased Risk of Ovarian Cancer
The Yost Legal Group is investigating claims involving talcum powder products that are linked to ovarian cancer. Scientific studies have shown that women that regularly used Johnson & Johnson products containing talcum powder are up to 20% more likely to develop ovarian cancer.
There have been suspicions in the medical community for more than 35 years that regular talcum powder use could increase the risk of developing ovarian cancer. Despite this knowledge of the link between talc and ovarian cancer, Johnson & Johnson chose not to add warning labels to any products containing talcum powder. By failing to warn consumers about the serious health risks of talcum powder, Johnson & Johnson jeopardized the health and safety of thousands of women.
Over 1,200 women diagnosed with ovarian cancer after long term use of Johnson’s Baby Powder® and Shower to Shower® products have filed suit against Johnson & Johnson.
