Ovarian cancer is a deadly disease, which will claim an estimated 14,180 women in 2015, according to the American Cancer Society.

Baby powder ovarian cancer lawsuits can be filed by women and the families of women who were diagnosed with ovarian cancer and have a history of using talc-based products for hygiene.
Johnson & Johnson knew about its products and ovarian cancer in the 1970s when studies of ovarian cancer patients showed particles of talc in their ovarian tissue.
In February, 2016 a judge ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $72 million to the family of a 62-year-old Alabama woman who died last year of ovarian cancer allegedly caused by years of using the company’s talc-based products. A separate jury in early May ordered J&J to pay $55 million to a 62-year-old South Dakota woman who alleged she developed ovarian cancer after using the company’s powders on her genital area for decades.There are now 1,200 lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson for its talc products.

How Does Talc Powder Cause Your Ovarian Cancer?
Talcum Powder is made up mostly of magnesium, silicon and oxygen, which, when ground into a powder form, can absorb moisture. For decades, talcum powder has been widely used to help keep skin dry and to prevent irritation and rashes. But when used on or near the genitals, particles can travel into the ovaries and remain there for years, causing inflammation and leading to the growth of cancer cells.
What’s more, a study by a Harvard doctor estimates that talc in hygiene products may be a contributing factor in the development of ovarian cancer in as many as 10,000 women each year.
Despite the scientific evidence, talcum powder continued to be used by Johnson & Johnson, unregulated and without any warning from the manufacturer.
Johnson & Johnson is currently facing more than 1,200 lawsuits alleging its products have led to ovarian cancer.
So far in 2016, two Missouri juries have weighed in clearly and strongly on the matter.
Why File A Talcum Powder Lawsuit?
We believe that Johnson & Johnson knew of about the link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer and still did not provide any warning to women who were using the product.
