Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Link
Jacqueline Fox passed away from ovarian cancer that was caused in part by Johnson & Johnson’s talcum powder. J & J had their chance to dispute that conclusion, but a jury found Johnson & Johnson liable for negligence, conspiracy, and failure to warn women of the potential risk of using talcum powder in the genital area. The jury awarded $72 million dollars, but no amount of money can bring back Ms. Fox. The jury foreman felt J & J was hiding something, and hiding something they are. After the trial, J & J reaffirmed that they felt they did nothing wrong, but the jury felt they were covering things up and should have at least put a warning about the potential link to ovarian cancer with long term usage in the genital area.
As per a study conducted on women who used talcum powder in their genital area regularly the increased risk of ovarian cancer was as high as 33%. Nearly 2000 women with ovarian cancer were surveyed to come up with this conclusion.
A well renowned gynecologist has stated that scientists have looked at the ovarian cancer cases and significant talc particles were observed which were consistently present in number of women.
Internet rumblings dismissed the ovarian-talcum link. J & J dismissed the link and some discussion echoed that the Fox case was because the plaintiff were able to put forth their best case and the results would be different when the Defendant tried their case.
May 2016 – Johnson & Johnson Lose their Pick – Jury reaffirms Link
Johnson & Johnson lost their second talcum powder lawsuit. A jury found for Gloria Ristesund, for $55 million dollars concluded that her ovarian cancer was caused by J & J talc powder. The jury believed the company had been aware of health risks since the 1970s but failed to warn women about the talc- ovarian cancer link. J & J still doesn’t believe it besides the statistics, and two impartial juries telling them they’re wrong.
THE OVARIAN TALC CONNECTION
People who are under constant exposure to talc based products are at a risk of converting good cells into contagious bad ones, which is cancer.
As observed in the J & J cases using products like Shower to Shower baby powder for a significant amount of time in the genital area was believed by the jury to cause ovarian cancer and then death. There is no warning on the products. J & J continues to deny what two impartial juries have found – that is, their product is linked to talc ovarian cancer. The juries heard the evidence for weeks, saw the statistics and the science and found it was more likely than not that the cancer was caused by talcum powder and J & J should have warned of the risks. Still J & J keeps saying their product is safe and wishing the cancer away.
Talcum Ovarian Cancer Settlements
With over $122 million dollars in the first two verdicts, presently there is no plan to settle the case for women who also had ovarian cancer due to usage of the tac powder or baby powder. These cases need to be litigated. Will J & J step up to the plate and compensate women for their life altering injuries or will they continue to deny? While they are in denial, they are hoping the clock will run out on women’s ability to file timely claims to hold them accountable. Even though the company as of May 2016 is professing their product is safe, if women try to file a claim too late, they will argue out of the other corner of their mouths that the women should have known when they were diagnosed with cancer that Talc could have caused it. They will invoke terms like statute of limitations and argue against things like repose, but cancer does not care for legal terms, and they need to be held accountable.
