A Product Used Every Day
Many women use talcum powder as part of their daily routine. As one woman stated in a recent Bloomberg article on the use of Johnson & Johnson talc powder: “I was raised up on it … [it] was to help you stay fresh and clean. We ladies have to take care of ourselves. It was as normal as using toothpaste or deodorant.” The revenue from sales of talcum powders suggests that millions of women throughout the United States share in this thought. For decades, they have used talcum powder on their undergarments or genital areas because marketing messages told them it was hygienic.
Manufacturers Hide a Secret Danger
Unfortunately, many of these women have subsequently developed ovarian cancer. This fact tends to shock people because they want to believe that the products they use every day are safe and properly tested. When the woman quoted above found out she had cancer and that it was likely linked to her use of talcum powder, her whole family was shocked. Even her son was heard saying: “It has to be safe. It’s put on babies. It’s been around forever. Why haven’t we heard about any ill effects?”
The reason that no one heard anything about the dangers of talc was that Johnson & Johnson, one of the largest manufacturers of these powders, had ignored warning signs of the talc-cancer link for decades.
Today, advanced toxicology and other medical technologies have uncovered decades’ worth of negligence. It is time to stand up to these companies and hold them accountable for putting women at risk. Thousands of cases have already been filed against Johnson & Johnson by those who have been diagnosed with cancer and those who have lost loved ones to ovarian cancer linked to talc powder.
