HEALTH ALERT: Talcum Powder Use Linked to Ovarian Cancer

The potential link between talcum powder-based products and cancer has been the subject of more than 20 studies over the last several decades. Dr. Daniel Cramer, a Harvard researcher and professor, testified that talcum powder is likely responsible for 10,000 cases of ovarian cancer each year.

If you were diagnosed with ovarian cancer and have a history of talcum powder use, you may qualify to receive damages.

A report published by the New York Times in the 80’s stated that Johnson & Johnson was aware of studies indicating the increased risk in ovarian cancer when talcum powder was regularly applied on the genitalia.
