How Do We Know Baby Powder Could Cause Cancer?

According to Reuters, Johnson & Johnson “knew for decades” that traces of asbestos had been found in its talc-based bath products. Reports of this date all the way back to the 1970s, yet they did not share this information with consumers or regulatory bodies.

Studies linking baby powder to ovarian cancer go back just as far. Researchers noted talc particles embedded in ovarian cancer tumors.

Now, we know why: talcum powder has been known to contain traces of a cancer-causing substance called asbestos. In nature, asbestos deposits can form near talc deposits, resulting in contamination during the mining process.

Aside from ovarian cancer, prolonged exposure to talc-based baby powder may also cause lung cancer and mesothelioma.


Talc Baby Powder Lawsuit Outcomes

The fight for justice on behalf of baby powder cancer victims continues as courts repeatedly side with victims against Johnson & Johnson. The company has paid hundreds of millions in damages so far. They’re doing everything they can to avoid accountability, but the people they’ve hurt aren’t giving up.

Recently, Johnson & Johnson attempted to evade paying victims by moving the liability of some 38,000 lawsuits to a subsidiary company. That subsidiary would then file for bankruptcy, effectively snuffing out hope for tens of thousands of victims. A judge saw through this tactic, forcing the company to shift its strategy. Now, they’ve agreed to pay $9 billion to settle current and future baby powder cancer lawsuits.

Johnson & Johnson had previously attempted to contest a $2 billion verdict handed down to a group of women who alleged they developed ovarian cancer after using baby powder. The U.S. Supreme Court rejected the company’s appeal.

As people continue to come forward, Johnson & Johnson will have to pay. Duncan|Stubbs is actively taking on new cases and is ready to hear your story.
