Talcum Powder Lawsuits Making Headlines

Over the last few years, an estimated 1,200 lawsuits have been filed on behalf of women who were diagnosed with ovarian cancer after long-term exposure to using talcum powder products for feminine hygiene. Major news outlets including CNN, Fox and USA Today have reported on the story, raising awareness about the potential cancer risks. However, despite the countless headline stories and lawsuit victories, manufacturers have yet to update their product labeling to adequately warn consumers about the potential danger they may face from using these products.

A History of Negligence

The potential risks associated with long-term talc use have been studied in the medical community since 1971, when researchers discovered talc particles on 75% of ovarian tumors. Since that initial study, new research has steadily been released revealing a staggering 33% increased risk of women who regularly use talcum powder products for feminine hygiene developing ovarian cancer.

Despite the overwhelming medical research, manufacturers still fail to adequately warn consumers of the link between long-term use of talcum powder on the genital region and the potentially elevated risk of developing ovarian cancer. Because of this, countless life-long talc users may have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer without being aware of the connection.
