Understanding Talc Powder & Its Risks
Talc is a mineral composed of silicon, magnesium, and oxygen. Talcum powder is often used to prevent rashes, reduce friction, and keep the user’s skin dry. However, there are inclusions and properties including asbestos and some similar to asbestos, and long term, regular use has been alleged to be linked with certain ovarian cancers, particularly among women who use talc on their genital areas as part of their daily hygiene regimen.
In recent studies, researchers examined cancerous ovarian tissue, and discovered traces of talc minerals. This is alleged to point toward a direct correlation between using talcum powder products and developing certain cancers. Because most talc products are cosmetic, the FDA does not have jurisdiction over the manufacturers.
Numerous lawsuits have been filed against talc powder companies for manufacturing and marketing such a dangerous product, and for failing to warn about its risks. Allegations include indications that companies, such as Johnson & Johnson knew of the risks for decades without warning users. If you have suffered harm from using talc products, our Louisville dangerous product attorney can fight on your behalf as you pursue justice.
