Talcum powder link to ovarian cancer explained

| Medical Drugs

Talcum powder manufacturers know about an increased risk of ovarian cancer in women who use talc-containing products in the genital area, said Beasley Allen attorney Ted Meadows during his presentation at the 2014 Beasley Allen Legal Conference, held in November 2014. In fact, he told the audience of lawyers, manufacturers like Johnson & Johnson have known about the link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer for years, but have refused to add warnings to their products.

Ted is leading the charge in litigation related to women who have developed ovarian cancer after using talc-containing products like Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder and Shower to Shower body powder. In his presentation, Ted shares documents from physicians that provide evidence that tiny particles such as those in talcum powder can travel through the vagina, up the fallopian tubes, and become embedded in the tissue of the ovaries, where it can trigger abnormal cell growth resulting in ovarian cancer. Attorneys at Beasley Allen have filed about 300 ovarian cancer lawsuits.
