Talcum Powder Tied to Risk of Ovarian Cancer

*** UPDATE ***

A jury has awarded $55 million dollar verdict in a second talcum powder trial against Johnson & Johnson, finding that the talcum powder product caused the Plaintiff's ovarian cancer. Read More: http://mobile.reuters.com/article/idUSKCN0XT20L

If you or a loved one have developed ovarian cancer following talcum powder use, contact us today for a free case evaluation at 1-800-CALL-KEN.

For decades, women have used talcum powder for feminine hygiene.  Talcum, contained in many baby powders and body powders, is a mineral with moisture absorbing properties.  Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder and Valeant Pharmaceutical’s Shower to Shower body powders are promoted as appropriate for use all over the body.  Generations of women have used talcum powder on a daily basis by applying it to their undergarments and genitals.  Unfortunately, they have done so without knowledge or warning from the product manufacturers of the true risks posed by such use of these products.

Despite now mounting evidence of serious health affects with genital use of talcum powder, major manufacturers of talcum powder products do not warn consumers of the potential dangers.  Talc products used regularly in the genital area can increase the risk of ovarian cancer if talc particles travel through the vagina and uterus, into the fallopian tubes and ovaries.  A December 2015 study, written by Dr. Daniel Cramer of Harvard University, found a direct link between inflammation from talc particles in the reproductive system and the development of ovarian cancer.  See Cramer, DW, et al., Association Between Talc Use and Ovarian Cancer:  A Retrospective Case Control Study In Two U.S. States, Epidemiology (Dec. 17, 2015).  The report found that those who regularly applied talcum powder products to their genitals, tampons, sanitary napkins and/or undergarments were at 33% greater risk of developing ovarian cancer than those who did not use talcum powder products.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), part of the World Health Organization (WHO), has concluded that, based on limited evidence from human studies of a link to ovarian cancer, IARC classifies the perineal (genital) use of talc-based body powder as “possibly carcinogenic to humans.”

An estimated 20,000 women are diagnosed each year with ovarian cancer, and according to Dr. Cramer, as many as 10,000 of those women develop ovarian cancer as a result of baby powder use.  Ovarian cancer symptoms may include bloating, abdominal pain, changes in bladder and bowel movements and overall fatigue.  Ovarian cancer is a serious disease and is expected to result in more than 14,000 deaths this year in the United States.

Recent Jury Verdict

Recently, a Missouri jury awarded $72,000,000 to the family of a Birmingham, Alabama woman who died of ovarian cancer following daily use of Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder and other products containing talcum powder. At trial, attorneys introduced into evidence a September 1997 internal memo from a Johnson & Johnson medical consultant suggesting that “anybody who denies [the] risks” between “hygenic” talc use and ovarian cancer would be publicly perceived in the same light as those who denied a link between smoking cigarettes and cancer: “Denying the obvious in the face of all evidence to the contrary.”  Yet, incredibly, Johnson & Johnson has to date continued to fail to warn users of their talcum powder products of this risk.

An expert at trial testified at least 45,000 women have died as a result of ovarian cancer that could be attributed to talcum powder use on the genitals, and estimated 1,500 women will die within the next year as a result of talc use.

Nugent's Flamethrowers

This season, Ken Nugent has pledged to give back to the firefighters that protect our community with the help of some guys who know how to bring the heat!

For each strikeout that the Braves pitching staff records, Ken will donate $10.00 to a local fire station. At the end of each series, they'll tally the "K's" and give that total to a local fire station.

Every time a Braves pitcher takes the mound, give an extra loud cheer because when they rack up the "K's", Atlanta's Firefighters and Braves fans win!

This is a great cause and our fans can also get into the game by logging onto http://www.680thefan.com/ and nominate their local Fire Station. Come on Braves lets make every pitch worth $10.00.
