Have You Suffered Injuries From Products That Contain Talcum Powder?

Talcum powder has long been an ingredient in many feminine hygiene products. For many years, women used these products on a regular basis and today’s generation still uses them. Once upon a time, talcum powder included the cancerous ingredient asbestos. Today’s formulas don’t’ have asbestos – and haven’t had that cancerous ingredient since the ‘70s – but as it turns out, it may still be just as dangerous.

Studies are now linking use of talcum powder with an increased risk of cancer

Recent studies have shown that there may be a link between using talcum powder and a higher-than-average risk of ovarian cancer. Many products may contain talcum powder, including:

  • Baby powder
  • Condoms
  • Feminine washes
  • Sanitary napkins
  • Vaginal deodorants
  • Shower powders
  • Diaphragms
  • Tampons

Other victims have already held manufacturer’s responsible

There have been landmark verdicts on these cases. Earlier this year, a jury awarded one family $72 million. The victim was a 62-year-old woman who died from ovarian cancer and her family’s attorneys were able to prove that it was the talcum powder in feminine hygiene products that likely caused her cancer.
