When women sprinkle their sanitary napkins or genital area with talcum powder, the powder particles travel through their reproductive system and into their ovaries.
These powder particles embed in the ovarian tissue, causing irritation, inflammation, and damage to DNA, which enables the development and growth of ovarian cancer cells.
Many women and their families have begun suing Johnson & Johnson, the manufacturer of Johnson's Baby Powder and Shower powder containing two of the most popular products-the Shower. You can also hire a lawyer to file talcum powder cancer lawsuit against the talcum powder company.
This lawsuit claims that Johnson & Johnson knew of the dangerous link between the use of products for women's health and ovarian cancer and failed to warn consumers of the dangers.
