Talcum Powder

Talcum powder has been found to cause cancer when exposed to different tissues in the human body. Use of talcum powder has been linked to ovarian cancer and mesothelioma due to the asbestos in the powder.

Adult consumers are at risk of exposure to asbestos through talcum powder if they use cosmetics and personal care products including makeup, and body powders. Application of talcum powder as a feminine hygiene routine is the strongest risk factor for the development of asbestos-related ovarian cancer. Risk of developing mesothelioma increases with continued exposure to asbestos-contaminated talcum powder.

Johnson & Johnson has moved claims against it for talcum powder injuries into a bankruptcy proceeding in the state of New Jersey. If you have been affected by this product, you need attorneys who understand the bankruptcy process. Anne Andrews and Sean Higgins of Andrews & Thornton have negotiated on behalf of personal injury victims in some of the largest mass tort bankruptcies in American history. Their efforts secured billions of dollars in compensation for victims.
