Johnson's Baby Powder has been a household product for decades. Women have been using it to keep their baby's bottom dry and fresh and are also used as a feminine hygiene product.
Many women have used this product and Shower and Shower products to keep them clean and odor-free.
Unfortunately, women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer discovered the dangerous link between cancer and the use of their powder products. Many of them fought back and sued Johnson & Johnson, the manufacturer of this product.
Their talcum powder ovarian cancer lawsuits claim that Johnson & Johnson knew the relationship between the use of talcum powder and ovarian cancer, and failed to warn women of the risks. Some cases have gone to trial-and women won their case and were awarded millions in damages.
Ovarian cancer is a particularly deadly form of cancer that begins in the ovaries and female spread to other parts of her body as cancer grows. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 20,000 women were diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year.
Because women experience some symptoms in the early stages of cancer, it is often not diagnosed until its later stages when it has spread and to travel to other parts of his body. Treatments include chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation.
Still, they are less operative in the late stages of the disease, and ovarian cancers-including the often fatal for women who suffer from this cancer from the use of powder.
