Our Experienced Talcum Powder Lawsuit Attorneys Are Available Across the Country
In the last four decades, scientists and doctors have increasingly found that there is a link between use of talcum powder products and ovarian cancer. The common thought is that because talcum powder is often used in a woman’s genital area for personal hygiene, the talcum powder ends up causing ovarian cancer when it travels inside the uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes. Studies have revealed that women who regularly use talcum powder products in the genital area are at an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer by as much as thirty percent.
Despite these studies, talcum powder products are still largely unregulated by the government and manufacturers of these products do not warn consumers of the potential link between use of the products and ovarian cancer. If you believe that you have developed cancer from the use of a talc product, it is important that you consult with an experienced talcum powder lawyer right away. The knowledgeable and dedicated injury attorneys at Zinda Law Group have already been hard at work investigating talcum powder cases nationwide, preparing talcum powder lawsuits, and are ready to help with your case today.
What is Talcum Powder?
Talc is a mineral that occurs naturally in the environment. The talcum powder that is used in household products is generally made from this ground up talc. Some common talcum powder products that are used primarily by women in the home include body and facial powders, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder® and Valeant Pharmaceuticals’ Shower to Shower®. These powders are often used in the genital area to reduce friction, prevent rashes, and to keep skin dry. Talcum powder can also be found on feminine hygiene products like tampons and pads, or even on diaphragms and condoms.
Women who use talcum powder products on a regular basis are at an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer. Of the approximately 20,000 American women who receive an ovarian cancer diagnosis every year, it is thought that 2,000 of them have ovarian cancer that is related to regular use of talcum powder products. This means that approximately ten percent of ovarian cancer cases resulted from use of talcum powder. While ovarian cancer is not one of the most common forms of cancer amongst women, it is one of the deadliest. This is in part due to the fact that it is not easily detectable and often discovered late. As a result, the prolonged use of a talcum powder product can result in significant injuries and may also be fatal.
