Talc powder used in household products and is made from ground powder – a natural substance. Products used by women for hygiene include baby powder from Johnson & Johnson.
The main use of this product is to keep skin dry, especially in the female genitals, and to prevent rashes. However, some tampons and sanitary napkins also use powder.
Routine use of powder is estimated to diagnose about 10% of all American women with ovarian cancer each year. Ovarian cancer is the most deadly form of cancer in women because it can only be easily identified when it's too late.
Studies show that women who regularly use powder products in the genital area have an increased risk of ovarian cancer. Apart from these findings, this product is not regulated by the government.
Many applicants suffering from ovarian cancer or losing loved ones have successfully received compensation from Johnson & Johnson and other talcum powder manufacturers for pain, suffering, and damage caused by their negligence.
