A $72 million judgement was just awarded against Johnson & Johnson to a woman’s family whose fatal ovarian cancer was caused by the company’s talcum powder. Dudley DeBosier is presently accepting claims against Johnson & Johnson for women who have developed cancer after using Johnson & Johnson talcum products “Baby Powder” and “Shower to Shower.”
Researchers began linking talc to ovarian cancer in the 1970s and have found that women who suffered from ovarian cancer actually had talc particles embedded in their tissues. However, for dozens of years, Johnson & Johnson argued against these findings and continued marketing its products without issuing any warnings to female users.
Studies have indicated that talc particles can enter the body through the genitals and can then become trapped in the ovarian tissues. This can cause inflammation and the growth of malignant cancer cells.
Johnson & Johnson’s internal documents show that it knew of studies connecting talc use and ovarian cancer yet hid it from the public. Testimony revealed that 1,500 women per year will die of ovarian cancer linked to J&J Baby Powder and Shower to Shower.
In addition to baby powder, products used in the genital area that may include talc are: condoms, diaphragms, sanitary napkins, tampons and vaginal deodorants.
When a corporation’s products threaten your life, you shouldn’t be left without help. If you or a loved one has developed cancer after using a product containing talcum powder, you deserve an experienced team of lawyers protecting your rights. Contact Dudley DeBosier at 866.897.8495 today.
