Johnson And Johnson: Talcum Powder And Ovarian Cancer Lawsuit
Johnson and Johnson has been proven to have known that talcum powder was linked to ovarian cancer and the company did not warn consumers. WOW. For those of us with ovarian cancer this is sad news, big news, angering news......stunning. For me personally I don't yet know what to make of it.
I used baby powder in my teens, 20s, 30s and 40s. I never knew it was actually dangerous. How many products actually have talcum powder? Is it on or in most feminine hygiene products? It is not a surprise that any company would hide this kind of evidence or information from consumers when their bottom line is threatened, especially cash cow products like baby powder or the infamous "Shower to Shower". I worry about young women and teens especially. Being a female takes a lot of work when it comes to hygiene, it just does. Powders were supposed to be helpful, not harmful. Wow, this is devastating in so many ways.
WHAT EXACTLY DOES THIS MEAN FOR ALL OF US?
God Bless the Fox family for being persistent with their lawsuit against Johnson and Johnson.
I am linking two articles today that show some details or links to important research for your benefit. We are learning together.
1.The Fort Worth Legal Examiner:
"J&J Slammed in Baby Powder Death Lawsuit"

2.Medscape author Nick Mulcahy:
"J&J Must Pay $72 Million in Talc Powder-Ovarian Cancer Case"
Quote from http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/859275 In 1982, Dr Cramer was the lead author of the first study ever to link talc use with ovarian cancer. He has since been involved in multiple studies on the association, the latest of which was published just a few months ago (Epidemiology. Published online December 17, 2015). He also testified at the Johnson & Johnson trial as a paid expert witness.
"I'm still absorbing the news," Dr Cramer said today. "A feeling of vindication is tempered by the realization that thousands of women continued to use talc products and died of ovarian cancer after my first study in 1982."
Peace and Blessings
