Baby Powder Ovarian Cancer Warnings
Numerous organizations have issued warnings regarding the risk of ovarian cancer connected with talcum powder use, yet FDA has never warned American consumers of the increased risk for ovarian cancer. The outcome of the first baby powder ovarian cancer lawsuit was settled in favor of the plaintiff, Deane Berg, when a federal jury found that Ms. Berg’s ovarian cancer was connected to her use of Johnson & Johnson talcum powder products. Even in light of this court decision, no official baby powder ovarian cancer warning statement has been issued by the FDA.

Studies show Talc particles embed deep in the ovaries.
A study published The Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaeology in March 1971 found that 75 percent of the ovarian tumor tissue studied contained particles of talc. Since that time, numerous studies have suggested that minute talc particles can migrate from the vaginal areas to the ovaries where they embed deep within the tissue.
Talcum Powder and Ovarian Cancer
Pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson finds itself the subject of two class-action lawsuits filed in 2014, both of which claim the company is responsible for giving women ovarian cancer through its high-selling talcum powder products, Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower.
The class-action filings came one year after South Dakota resident Deane Berg won her legal claim that J&J was negligent because it did not warn her during three decades of Baby Powder use could put her at greater risk for developing ovarian cancer. Berg was diagnosed with that type of cancer in 2006.

Every legal claim has a time limit, though. If you don’t sue in time, you risk losing your claim forever. Unfortunately, when the clock starts—and how long it will run—isn’t always clear before it’s too late. That’s why speaking to a lawyer as soon as possible is the smart thing to do. Don’t delay.
Persons or their loved ones who have developed ovarian cancer and have a history of using talc baby powder may be entitled to compensation for damages and losses they have suffered as a result of talcum powder cancer. No amount of compensation can make up for the suffering or loss that comes with cancer, but talcum powder cancer lawsuits can also help to exert pressure for future baby powder cancer warning labels.
