Doctors link talcum powder to higher risk of ovarian cancer

According to research recently published in the European Journal of Cancer Prevention, doctors in Manhattan have found a statistically significant link between the use of talcum powder and ovarian cancer in woman.

In fact, Dr. Paolo Boffetta of The Tisch Cancer Institute of Mount Sinai Hospital — and one of the doctors involved in the recent study — was quoted by Newsday as saying, "Overall, it is about a 20 percent higher risk for women who say they used talc, compared to women who say they did not use it."

While the doctors stopped short of saying that talcum powder actually causes cancer, this research has nevertheless discovered some type of link.

Suspected dangers of talcum powder

Cancer victims have long suspected talc — the main ingredient in talcum powder — to be a dangerous substance. Indeed, many women have even filed lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson claiming that its baby powder and other talc products caused their ovarian cancer.

And, despite the fact that company officials have denied any links between its talc products and ovarian cancer, juries have awards large verdicts to multiple victims, including a $70 million verdict last year to a woman in California.

While it remains to be seen how the many other pending cases will play out, victims of ovarian cancer should nevertheless speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible if they believe their condition was caused by talcum powder use. If you wait too long to act, you may not be able to bring your claim later. So act today.
