Does Talcum Powder Contain Asbestos?
Johnson & Johnson is facing thousands of lawsuits over its Shower to Shower and Baby Powder talcum powder products. Lawsuits have been filed across the country by women who claim they have developed ovarian cancer from using Johnson & Johnson’s talcum powder. If used on the genital area, the powder, which contains talc as well as other harmful substances can increase the rise of ovarian cancer. Talc, a group of naturally occurring minerals, can migrate to the ovaries and cause inflammation. This inflammation is believed to produce cancer cells over time. There are also claims that Johnson & Johnson’s talcum powder products contain asbestos.
Internal company documents reportedly show that Johnson & Johnson has known its talcum powder products have contained asbestos. According to the documents, Johnson & Johnson has allegedly known since the 1970s that its talcum powder products are contaminated by asbestos and heavy metals during the mining process.
