Ovarian cancer is a very serious disease and is expected to be the cause of up to 15,000 deaths this year. Since 1982, studies have proven that the extended use of talcum powder with women has been the cause of some of these deadly cases of ovarian cancer.
When talcum powder is applied to the genital region, talc particles can travel through the reproductive system to the ovaries and can remain in the ovaries for years. These particles create an environment conducive for the growth of cancer cells
Most people may think that it would be difficult to prove liability to talcum powder in many of these cases but that isn’t the case at all. Talcum powder has a similar chemical make-up as asbestos in how in some mesotheliomas asbestos causes ovarian cancers.
