Reports are surfacing regarding a connection between talcum powder use and it causing ovarian cancer. If you have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer after having used baby powder or products such as Shower to Shower body powder containing talcum powder, you need to contact an experienced lawyer familiar with talcum powder lawsuits here in Central NY.
Manufacturers, such as Johnson and Johnson, have known of the link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer for over 40 years. The recent lawsuit involving talcum powder states that these manufacturers failed to warn consumers of the increased risk of ovarian cancer caused by using talc-based products for personal hygiene use in the genital area. Moreover, despite its talc supplier adding warning labels in 2006, Johnson and Johnson chose not to add similar warnings to its products, according to litigation documents.
The attorneys at Brindisi, Murad & Brindisi Pearlman are reviewing personal injury cases related to people suffering from ovarian cancer due to the use of talcum powder. If you or someone you know has used talcum powder products and now has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, contact The People's Lawyer today.
What Is Talcum Powder AND WHY IS IT Utilized?
Talcum powder is made from talc, the main ingredient in baby powder. It is a white powder primarily made up from the elements of magnesium, silicon, hydrogen and oxygen. When talc is finely ground, it helps to reduce friction and absorb moisture, making it useful for keeping skin dry and preventing rashes. It is widely used in cosmetic products such as baby powder to reduce diaper rash, used in cosmetics like blush and in adult body powders to reduce odors.
Common SIDE EFFECTS Of Talcum Powder Usage
Initially the main health concern was from long-term exposure of the inhalation of talc which raised the risk of lung cancer. However, today the most serious concern is the use of beauty products by women. There has been a connection established between woman using talcum powder and ovarian cancer, caused by the powder entering the ovaries through the vagina. According to the International Journal of Gynecological Cancer, frequent talcum powder use on the female genital area increases the risk of ovarian cancer between 30-60%. The more often a woman uses it on her genital area, the more likely she will experience ovarian cancer.
Additionally, talcum powder has been associated with respiratory issues, especially in infants. This is caused by the powder becoming airborne during normal application. When inhaled by infants, the powder can cause wheezing, fast and shallow breathing, coughing, and in some cases acute or chronic lung irritation. Long-term exposure to talc can cause pneumonia and asthma symptoms.
