The Talc Powder-Ovarian Cancer Link - When the Industry Knew

Talc cancer lawyers Rick Shapiro and Kevin Duffan discuss when manufacturers learned of the disturbing link between talc powder use and ovarian cancer in women who use the powder for feminine hygiene. Shockingly, the industry knew about the ovarian cancer risks back in the 1980s. In fact, a consultant for Johnson & Johnson, a major talc product manufacturer, suggested the company put warning labels on their talc powders in 1982. Johnson & Johnson ignored this advice and neglected the health of its consumers. 

Our law firm is currently investigating and accepting talc cancer cases. If you or a loved one used talc powder products consistently over the past five years and were diagnosed with ovarian cancer, you may be able to pursue financial restitution for your harms and losses.
