Talcum Powder Claims
Talcum powder has been widely used for decades, trusted by consumers for its ability to absorb moisture and prevent rashes and chafing. In that time, however, numerous studies have been conducted surrounding the safety of the product and the potential risk it poses to users.
These studies investigated a potential link between talc powder and ovarian cancer. They showed that women who used the powder had a significantly higher risk of developing ovarian cancer. It is suspected that the powder traveled up the woman, resting in the ovarian tissue and increasing the woman's risk for ovarian cancer.
Talcum Powder Lawsuits — Holding Manufacturers Accountable
As researchers were conducting these studies, manufacturers of the product were aware that the powder was under the microscope and there was the possibility that it could be dangerous. They did nothing to warn consumers or recall products that posed a risk.
Because of these companies negligence, allowing dangerous products to be sold and used, all the while putting women at risk, there are legal options for those who have been harmed by this product. Women who used talcum powder for a period of time and developed ovarian cancer should explore their options for seeking compensation from liable manufacturers.
