Talcum powder link to ovarian cancer explained

Talcum powder manufacturers know about an increased risk of ovarian cancer in women who use talc-containing products in the genital area, said Beasley Allen attorney Ted Meadows during his presentation at the 2014 Beasley Allen Legal Conference, held in November 2014. In fact, he told the audience of lawyers, manufacturers like Johnson & Johnson have known about the link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer for years, but have refused to add warnings to their products. Ted is leading the charge in litigation related to women who have developed ovarian cancer after using talc-containing products like Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder and Shower to Shower body powder. In his presentation, Ted shares documents from physicians that provide evidence that tiny particles such as those in talcum powder can travel through the vagina, up the fallopian tubes, and become embedded in the tissue of the ovaries, where it can trigger abnormal cell growth resulting in ovarian cancer. Attorneys at Beasley Allen have filed about 300 ovarian cancer lawsuits. If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and have used talcum powder or baby powder you may have a claim.

Click Here!! http://www.saturdaydiet.com for eCourses Get FREE; 10 page Weight Loss eBook at http://www.joanBars.com Special Alert For Women: Talcum Powder May Cause Ovarian Cancer It was reported by Google News on February 24, 2016 that Johnson & Johnson have been ordered by a court to pay $72 Million for selling Talc-Containing Products which contribute to ovarian cancer. What is Talcum Powder? Talcum powder is best-known as an ingredient in baby powder. It is also an ingredient in thousands of cosmetics, feminine hygiene products, contraceptives , deodorants, anti-chafing products, and more. Recent lawsuits have alleged that companies such as Johnson & Johnson were aware of this risk but failed to take steps to warm consumers. Studies Linking Talcum Powder and Cancer The first study linking talcum powder and ovarian cancer was published in the 1970s, when researches who examined cancerous ovarian tissue discovered talc fibers. Since then, numerous studies have been published but experts do not agree that there is a causal connection between perineal talcum powder and ovarian cancer. Ovarian Cancer Kills- over 140,000 women a years. Signs Of Ovarian Cancer Abdominal or Pelvic Pain, Bloating, Feeling Full Quickly, Urinary Problems Why Does Ovarian Cancer Affect Women Talcum powder usage around the genitals increases ovarian cancer risk. 1 out of 5 American women apply talc powder to the genitals. Talc travels through the vagina, uterus, and Fallopian tubes to the ovaries. May cause inflammation and growth of ovarian cancer cells. A possible 30 percent increased risk of ovarian cancer with the perineal or genital use of talcum powder. Products that Contain Talcum: Baby Powder, Eye Shadow, Face powder, Deodorant powders, Shower to Shower Body Powder and other cosmetic products. Recent studies linking talcum powder and ovarian cancer: Anticancer Research - Meta-analysis of 16 studies found a 33% increased risk of ovarian cancer from perineal talcum powder use, but no causal relationship. Cancer Epidemiology - Harvard researchers compared 1,400 women with ovarian cancer to 1,800 healthy women and linked the use of talcum powder with a 36% increased risk of ovarian cancer. You should reduce your exposure to talcum powder ! Studies of personal use of talcum powder have had mixed results, although there is some suggestion of a possible increase in ovarian cancer risk. There is very little evidence at this time that any other forms of cancer are linked with consumer use of talcum powder. Until more information is available, people concerned about using talcum powder may want to avoid or limit their use of consumer products that contain it. For example, they may want to consider using cornstarch-based cosmetic products instead. There is no evidence at this time linking cornstarch powders with any form of cancer.

Talcum Powder Linked to Ovarian Cancer
 
00:16
Many women utilize talcum powder on the genital region as a way to keep their skin dry and reduce friction. The problem is that particles of talc can potentially enter the vagina and make their way to the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. This could potentially cause inflammation and increase the risk of cancer. The first study linking talcum powder and ovarian cancer was published in the 1970s, when researches who examined cancerous ovarian tissue discovered talc fibers. Since then, numerous studies have been published but experts do not agree that there is a connection between talcum powder and ovarian cancer. If you have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer after using talcum powder, you may have a valid talcum powder lawsuit. You could be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost income and pain and suffering, among other losses. Our firm works with experienced and knowledgeable talcum powder lawyers, who charge no legal fees unless you receive a settlement or award.

Talcum Powder Linked to Ovarian Cancer
 
02:55
Attention: If you or a loved one uses talc powder, you may be at increased risk of ovarian cancer. A South Dakota jury recently sided with a woman claiming her ovarian cancer was linked to her use of Johnson & Johnson talc-based body powder. The jury stated that J&J should have warned of the risks. Three doctors analyzed the woman's cancer tissue and found talc. They concluded that the body powder was the cause. One of those doctors, Daniel Cramer of Harvard University, has studied the association between talc and cancer for 30 years. He stated that talc is probably a factor in 10,000 cases of ovarian cancer each year. Talc is a mineral made up primarily of magnesium, silicon, and oxygen. As a powder, it absorbs moisture well and helps cut down on friction. It is estimated that 20% to 40% of women use talc powder regularly on their genital area. This usage occurs either through direct application, or as a result of tampons, sanitary pads and diaphragms that have been dusted with talc. Ovarian cancer is the eighth most common cancer in women, and the fifth leading cause of female cancer deaths. Each year in the U.S. about 22,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer, and about 15,000 die from it. The FDA stated in 1993 that it was aware of dangers due to talc, but to this day has not taken any action on the problem. The FDA has even denied petitions requesting that talcum powder products be required to have warnings on their labels. In 2002, the president of the industry's Cosmetic Toiletry and Fragrance Association, Edward Kavanaugh, conceded that talc is toxic and "can reach the human ovaries." The International Agency for Research (IARC) on Cancer said that based on evidence from human studies, the IARC classifies the perineal (genital) use of talc-based body powder as "possibly carcinogenic to humans." Anticancer Research published a 'meta-analysis,' or large scale review, of 16 previous published studies involving 11,933 women and found a 33 percent increased risk of ovarian cancer was confirmed. If you believe that you or a loved one may have been harmed or killed from talcum powder use, contact one of our representatives immediately to find out if you may qualify for compensation: call today at 1 (800) DRUG 411.

"Talcum powder can be used partly for the babies but excessive use has his own Side Effects like if you use a lot of talcum it has very small particles which may enter the respiratory tract of the baby and this me irritate the cells in the respiratory tract and most of the baby's may get allergic or they may have a hyper active airway and hence this may increase their hyperactive Airway disease or increase the irritability in the Airways leading to increased wheezing episodes, so always better to have a less use of the talcum powder. Again know there are some studies with says that some of the talcum Powder contain asbestos content, long exposure of asbestos to the respiratory tract may lead to lung cancers which is like especially mesothelial mass. It also it may affect the skin and some of the baby skin a very sensitive increase use of talcum powder decreases the moisture content and hydration of the skin and hence the skin become more irritants and there is a chance of increase dermatitis in the babies and. Scientific evidences which has come out that increase talcum powder used in the genital area or the diaper area may increase the chances of ovarian cancer in Girl babies prolonged use can cause this so always it is advisable to use it very sparsely.

The results of several studies to determine if talcum powder can cause ovarian cancer have been inconclusive. Most of these studies focused on whether the chance of a woman getting ovarian cancer increased if particles of talcum or baby powder traveled through the vagina, uterus, and fallopian tubes to the ovary via sanitary napkins, diaphragms, condoms or direct application, American Cancer Society reported. ► SUBSCRIBE our channel: https://goo.gl/5F04NY 💋 G+:https://goo.gl/lQsL5w Twitter: https://goo.gl/lQDTlX 💋Pinterest: https://goo.gl/EZLI5T ► If there are any copyright issues with any videos posted here i will remove them. ► Thanks for watching! 💋Please watch: 💋Health :https://goo.gl/x3JCp9

Talcum Powder And Cancer - How Bad Is Baby Powder For You?
 
02:41
How Bad Is Baby Powder? You heard correctly. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends against using baby powder as do many individual pediatricians. The issue is the talc that once was used in powders but, fortunately, has been eliminated in many of these products. Talc is a mineral composed of hydrated magnesium silicate. The danger is that babies can easily inhale tiny particles of it that are light enough to be carried in the air. When inhaled, talc can dry an infant’s mucous membranes, adversely affect the baby’s breathing, and cause serious lung damage. Studies have shown that talc can lead to shortness of breath and wheezing in babies and can also lead to obstruction of the airways. Some babies have developed pneumonia and some have died as a result of respiratory failure from inhaling the powder. Corn starch isn’t ideal either, but its particles are larger and are not as easily inhaled as talc. You should also be careful not to use either of these powders around older children or adults who have asthma because of the irritation it can cause when inhaled. If you do use powder, be sure not to sprinkle it directly on your baby’s body and keep it as far from the head as possible. It would be best to shake some of the powder on your hands away from the baby and then use your hands to apply it to the baby’s bottom. Be sure to keep any powder you use in a childproof container so that other youngsters don’t open it and accidentally spill it or shake it into the air. You may have read about a possible link between talcum powder and cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, the principal concern is whether talc miners or others who have had long-term exposure to particles of the mineral are at higher risk of lung cancer as a result of breathing them in. In addition, some studies have suggested that women who regularly use talcum powder on the genital area have an increased risk of ovarian cancer. As for a link with lung cancer, the big question is whether talc itself might be at fault or whether small amounts of asbestos that occur with some kinds of talc are the problem. Other mineral exposures may also play a role. The American Cancer Society notes that no increased risk of lung cancer has been reported with consumer use of talcum powder.

Can talcum powder give you cancer?: http://www.theweek.co.uk/95028/can-talcum-powder-give-you-cancer. Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCknfO1p2sC4ItWDCow9uZzg?sub_confirmation=1   Johnson & Johnson has been ordered to pay $4.7bn (£3.6bn) in damages to 22 women who claim that asbestos in the pharmaceutical giant’s talcum powder products caused them to develop ovarian cancer.   Lawyers for the women and their families alleged that the company “knew its talc was contaminated with asbestos since the 1970s but failed to warn consumers about the risks”, says the BBC. The  jury at the trial, in the US state of Missouri, heard that of the women represented in this case, six have died from ovarian cancer. But what does the science say about the apparent link? What is talcum powder? Talcum powder is made from talc, a mineral made up of the elements including magnesium and silicon. Because of its moisture-absorbing qualities, it is commonly found in “cosmetic products such as baby powder and adult body and facial powders, as well as in a number of other consumer products”, says the American Cancer Society. In its natural form, some talc contains asbestos - a substance known to cause cancers when ingested. This has led to concerns that women who apply talcum powder regularly to their genital area may have an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer.What does the evidence say? In a recent study, researchers looked at data on more than 2,000 women with ovarian cancer and compared their use of talc to a control group of women without the disease. “Overall, they found a 33% increase in the risk of ovarian cancer with genital talc use,” says the NHS website. However, the site adds, these risk estimates were based on a small sample of women and the participants self-reported their use of talc, so the findings may not be reliable. These kinds of studies also cannot determine whether talc actually caused the cancer: a complex variety of lifestyle and genetic factors affect risk of developing the disease. So is talcum powder safe to use? The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classifies talc that contains asbestos as “carcinogenic to humans”, and perineal (genital) use of talc-based body powder as “possibly carcinogenic to humans”, according to the American Cancer Society website. This suggests that there may indeed be a link between the powder and ovarian cancer. But is important to note that all talcum products used in homes in the UK and US have been asbestos-free since the 1970s. Furthermore, Cancer Research UK says there are “important weaknesses” in the studies that suggest women who used talc prior to then may have an increased risk of ovarian cancer. However, to play it safe, medical experts recommend that only women use only plain, unscented soaps on the external genital area. #Can, #talcum, #powder, #give, #cancer #ScienceHealth, #US

Case Allege Talcum Powder Can Lead to Ovarian Cancer
 
02:58
Visit: https://www.thehigginsfirm.com/products-liability.html Kacy Hagerty: The company Johnson & Johnson is facing a number of lawsuits alleging that they fail to warn women about the risk of developing ovarian cancer when using one of their products. Attorney Carrie LaBrec with The Higgins Firm recently stopped by to tell us the very latest. Carrie, it's great to have you on the show. Carrie LaBrec: Thank you for having me. Kacy Hagerty: So, tell us a little bit about these cases and what's going on here? Carrie LaBrec: Well, we are reviewing cases on behalf of women who have developed ovarian cancer after using talcum or baby powder products. In 1971, there were some studies that were done that actually linked the tumors that developed in a women's ovaries to concentrate the forms of talc powder and then there were later studies done in 1982 that actually found that the women who used talcum-based powders and baby powder near their genital area were at a much higher chance of developing ovarian cancer. There had been numerous lawsuits that have risen out of these – out of these claims and that's what we're here, you know, seeking to help all these women who've been affected by this today. Kacy Hagerty: Right. It's so sad. So how many lawsuits been filed that you know of or any in your office? Carrie LaBrec: Yes. There's – many lawsuits have been filed specifically against Johnson & Johnson which is, you know, one of the large companies that developed these products. The 1982 researchers actually recommended that these companies have warning labels, something to let women know the risk of developing ovarian cancer and they have failed to do that to this day… Kacy Hagerty: Wow. Carrie LaBrec: Back in 2013, there was a kind of a landmark case in which the woman, the plaintiff in the case, had been using these powders for 30 years near her genital area and developed ovarian cancer and the jury found that this was the cause of her ovarian cancer and that Johnson & Johnson knew of these risks since 1982 but failed to warn her and the public of these – of all these risks. Kacy Hagerty: Goodness. So if someone watching suspects this could be happening to them or maybe they’ve developed cancer and think that that could be part of the reason, when should they call your office? Carrie LaBrec: Well, I think that if they know that there is – that they have been having problems or they’ve developed ovarian cancer or some – even if it's just suspected that it might be related, they can call us anytime. We can go ahead and get information and see kind of where – where we are with their process. If they have any initial concerns about using these products and not really sure, you know, if they're at risk, they – best thing for them to do is talk to their doctor. But we are free anytime to talk to anybody who wants to give us a call. Kacy Hagerty: Absolutely. Answer a lot of questions and walk them through the process, really helping out a lot of people out there, Carrie. Thank you so much for being here. Carrie LaBrec: Thank you. Kacy Hagerty: The Higgins Firm is serving Tennessee. Give them a call at 1-800-705-2121. Again, that number is right there on your screen. That's 1-800-705-2121.

Increased Risk of Ovarian Cancer in Women Using Talc Product

Talc cancer attorney Rick Shapiro talks about the shocking results of medical studies conducted to determine whether there was a link between using talcum powder products and ovarian cancer. The results showed an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer in women who consistently used talc products in the genital region. In fact, some studies showed a 33 percent increased risk of being diagnosed with ovarian cancer.

जॉनसन  के उत्पादों से कैंसर / johnson & johnson ordered to pay $4.7 billion,baby powder cause cancer
 
02:56
A jury in Missouri ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $4.69 billion in damages to 22 women who claim the company’s talcum powder products caused ovarian cancer. Following an eight-hour deliberation Thursday, jurors awarded the women $550 million in compensatory damages and another $4.14 billion in punitive damages, their attorney, Mark Lanier, said in a news release. At issue were claims that the pharmaceutical giant sold powder products that were contaminated with asbestos — once a pollutant in talc that has been linked to lung cancer — though there is much debate about whether talcum powder can lead to ovarian cancer. Johnson & Johnson said in a statement that it is “deeply disappointed in the verdict.” “Johnson & Johnson remains confident that its products do not contain asbestos and do not cause ovarian cancer and intends to pursue all available appellate remedies,” it said. “Every verdict against Johnson & Johnson in this court that has gone through the appeals process has been reversed and the multiple errors present in this trial were worse than those in the prior trials which have been reversed.” For decades, talcum powder has been used on babies. Women sometimes use it, too, particularly on genital areas to absorb moisture and reduce odors. According to the complaint filed last year in the Circuit Court of the City of St. Louis, the women routinely used Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower, an absorbent body powder, to “dust their perineum for feminine hygiene purposes.” They said they later developed ovarian cancer. Following Thursday’s ruling, the women’s lawyer said that the case led to the first talc- and asbestos-included ovarian cancer verdict in the United States. “For over 40 years, Johnson & Johnson has covered up the evidence of asbestos in their products,” Lanier said in the press release. “We hope this verdict will get the attention of the J&J board and that it will lead them to better inform the medical community and the public about the connection between asbestos, talc, and ovarian cancer. The company should pull talc from the market before causing further anguish, harm, and death from a terrible disease. “J&J sells the same powders in a marvelously safe corn starch variety. If J&J insists on continuing to sell talc, they should mark it with a serious warning.” But Johnson & Johnson said in its statement that the trial was “a fundamentally unfair process,” noting most of the women were not from Missouri, where the testimonies were heard. The company added that the verdict “which awarded the exact same amounts to all plaintiffs irrespective of their individual facts, and differences in applicable law, reflects that the evidence in the case was simply overwhelmed by the prejudice of this type of proceeding.” As The Washington Post’s Laurie McGinley reported, there is a debate about whether talcum powder can cause ovarian cancer, with many experts, including government researchers, contending the evidence is thin. Talc is a mineral used in cosmetics and personal-care products, McGinley reported. According to the American Cancer Society, in its natural form, it may contain asbestos, which, when inhaled, may cause cancer in the lungs. However, there are questions about whether asbestos-free talc, which is the form used in modern products, poses a similar risk, according to the association. Regarding ovarian cancer, in particular, the American Cancer Society states that studies have shown mixed results, “with some studies reporting a slightly increased risk and some reporting no increase.” #ttnnews #news please subscribe for more latest updates..

Talcum Powder may cause Ovarian Cancer   TheLawFirm com SD
 
01:40
Talcum Powder May Cause Ovarian Cancer if Regularly Applied to Genitals Johnson and Johnson’s® Baby Powder is one of the most popular products containing talcum powder, may increase the risk of ovarian cancer when used for feminine hygiene. Recent court cases have shined a spotlight on the possible link between women's regular use of talcum powder on their genitals and an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer. In February 2016, a jury determined that the family of a 62-year-old Alabama woman, who died from ovarian cancer in 2015 after decades of using talcum powder for feminine hygiene, was entitled to $72 million in damages from Johnson & Johnson®. The company did not inform customers of the potential dangers of its powders despite being aware of the possible health risks. Talcum powder is widely used in cosmetic products, such as baby powder and adult body and facial powders. The powder — made from talc, a mineral that consists of the elements magnesium, silicon, and oxygen — is used to absorb moisture and cut down on friction.

Sadly, there is no other way for us to tell you without us first reviewing the individual facts of your situation. Call our helpline for advice on the next steps you can take. Every state has speficied time restrictions on when a baby powder claim must be filed. These time constraints are called laws of restrictions. If a claim is not filed against the maker, online marketers, vendors before the statue of limitations ends, the affected persons are permanently voided from bringing a case versus the individuals and also firms who could have created their injuries. In situations like this, government judges typically pick a few lawyers to lead the examination for all those harmed that have actually filed a government lawsuit. The legal action entailing talcum powder mentions the producers have actually failed to caution customers of the enhanced danger of ovarian cancer cells caused by using talc-based products for individual health use. Especially, the legal actions indicate that the makers of talcum powder may have actually known for greater than 40 years there is a web link between baby powder and ovarian cancer. Nonetheless, these business intentionally made the decision not to advise ladies that the powder could cause cancer if it went into the ovaries with the vaginal area, uterus, and also fallopian tubes after being put on the genital area or on sanitary pads, diaphragms, or prophylactics. The most serious possible adverse effects from using baby powder by women is ovarian cancer cells, brought on by the powder getting in the ovaries with the vaginal canal. Based on the International Journal of Gynecological Cancer cells, constant talcum powder usage on the female genital location raises the danger of ovarian cancer between 30-60%. Dr. Daniel Cramer, with Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and also Harvard Medical College, approximates that hundreds of women obtain ovarian cancer from baby powder utilize annually. The more often a woman utilizes it on her genital location, the most likely she will certainly experience ovarian cancer cells.

Special Alert For Women Seniors: Talcum Powder May Cause Cancer
 
05:04
Go To http://www.InsuredMeds.com for FREE Quotes & Info ​ Special Alert For Women: Talcum Powder May Be The Cause Of Ovarian Cancer! It was reported by Google News on February 24, 2016 that Johnson & Johnson have been ordered by a court to pay $72 Million for selling Talc-Containing Products which contribute to ovarian cancer. What is Talcum Powder? Talcum powder is best-known as an ingredient in baby powder. It is also an ingredient in thousands of cosmetics, feminine hygiene products, contraceptives , deodorants, anti-chafing products, and more. Recent lawsuits have alleged that companies such as Johnson & Johnson were aware of this risk but failed to take steps to warm consumers. Studies Linking Talcum Powder and Cancer The first study linking talcum powder and ovarian cancer was published in the 1970s, when researches who examined cancerous ovarian tissue discovered talc fibers. Since then, numerous studies have been published but experts do not agree that there is a causal connection between perineal talcum powder and ovarian cancer. Ovarian Cancer Kills- over 140,000 women a years. Signs Of Ovarian Cancer Abdominal or Pelvic Pain, Bloating, Feeling Full Quickly, Urinary Problems Why Does Ovarian Cancer Affect Women Talcum powder usage around the genitals increases ovarian cancer risk. 1 out of 5 American women apply talc powder to the genitals. Talc travels through the vagina, uterus, and Fallopian tubes to the ovaries. May cause inflammation and growth of ovarian cancer cells. A possible 30 percent increased risk of ovarian cancer with the perineal or genital use of talcum powder. Products that Contain Talcum: Baby Powder, Eye Shadow, Face powder, Deodorant powders, Shower to Shower Body Powder and other cosmetic products. Recent studies linking talcum powder and ovarian cancer: Anticancer Research - Meta-analysis of 16 studies found a 33% increased risk of ovarian cancer from perineal talcum powder use, but no causal relationship. Cancer Epidemiology - Harvard researchers compared 1,400 women with ovarian cancer to 1,800 healthy women and linked the use of talcum powder with a 36% increased risk of ovarian cancer. You should reduce your exposure to talcum powder ! Studies of personal use of talcum powder have had mixed results, although there is some suggestion of a possible increase in ovarian cancer risk. There is very little evidence at this time that any other forms of cancer are linked with consumer use of talcum powder. Until more information is available, people concerned about using talcum powder may want to avoid or limit their use of consumer products that contain it. For example, they may want to consider using cornstarch-based cosmetic products instead. There is no evidence at this time linking cornstarch powders with any form of cancer.

Does talcum powder cause cancer? A legal and scientific battle
 
58:40
Story highlightsMore than 4,800 women with ovarian cancer and their families have filed lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson over its talc powdersThe science is mixed on a possible connection between talc and ovarian cancer (CNN)Visitors who walk into Deborah Giannecchini's ranch house in Modesto, California, will notice a well-tended garden, four small dogs who greet every visitor with enthusiasm and a sign that hangs prominently displayed in her living room that reads "It's never too late to live happily ever after."She got it when she was 62 years old, after she married her husband, Leland, but it could also represent her current mission: to help other women avoid the pain she's experienced and allow them to have their own happy endings.Giannecchini is living with what is considered terminal ovarian cancer. "That's what they say. I'm trying to prove that it's not," she said. "I don't wish this on anyone else. And if I can save one person, then I've done my job." A sign that hangs in Deborah Giannecchini's house. Giannecchini has ovarian cancer.She and thousands of others claim that they got their ovarian cancer after using a common toiletry as a part of their daily feminine hygiene routine. They used talc-based powder, commonly referred to as talcum powder or baby powder, though some baby powder products are cornstarch-based. Cornstarch products are not believed to cause any health problems.Some 4,800 women and their families have now sued pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson, which has sold the talc-based product Johnson's Baby Powder for more than 100 years. Many women like Giannecchini who have sought help from the courts have said they want Johnson & Johnson to, at the very least, put a warning label on the powder. Read MoreA handful of talcum powder companies have done just that. For example, Assured's Shower & Bath Absorbent Body Powder says that it is "intended for external use only" and adds, "Frequent application of talcum powder in the female genital area may increase the risk of ovarian cancer." Johnson & Johnson argues that such a label would be confusing, because although the company regularly expresses sympathy for these women, it vehemently denies that its powder has anything to do with their ovarian cancer. A handful of scientists have backed the company up in court. And other scientists back the women's claims.The topic is a growing debate in the scientific community. Some studies have found that women face an increased risk of ovarian cancer with use of talc in the genital area, but others do not. Most suggest that more research is needed. Birth control still linked to increased risk of breast cancerAt the intersection of this debate are lawyers who are putting this science under the microscope in courtrooms across the country. They've shown juries selective internal company memos that they say suggest Johnson & Johnson has been aware of this potential problem for decades and done nothing.

Johnson & Johnson to pay £3.6bn to women who say talc gave them cancer

Johnson & Johnson to pay £3.6bn to women who say talc gave them cancer: https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/uk-news/johnson--johnson-told-pay-14903148. Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCk8lqOUEadACkZyagXU3x1w?sub_confirmation=1   Pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson has been ordered to pay £3.6bn in damages to 22 women who alleged that its talc products caused them to develop ovarian cancer.  A jury in a court case in Missouri awarded the money in compensation and punitive damages.  The company, which is battling around 9,000 legal cases involving its signature baby powder, said it was "deeply disappointed" and plans to appeal.   During the trial, women said they had developed ovarian cancer after using baby powder and other talc products for years. This is what you need to know about the link between talcum powder and cancer .  Their lawyers alleged the company knew its talc was contaminated with asbestos since the 1970s but failed to warn consumers about the risks.   There have been concerns recently about a possible link between the popular toiletry product and cancer for years. These are the signs and symptoms of the most common cancers that you should not ignore.  There are several different types of talcum powder. When it first came about, the powder generally contained talc – a mineral made of magnesium, silicon and oxygen – in its natural form.  Then, some of that talc was found to contain asbestos, a substance which is known to cause cancers in and around the lungs when inhaled.  When it was proven in the 1970s, most manufacturers stopped using this kind of talc. Instead they swapped to corn starch, asbestos-free talc or U.S. Pharmacopeial (USP) grade talc which meets the highest quality, purity and compliance standards.  Several studies have looked at talcum powder use and ovarian cancer.  While on the whole studies have seen a modest increase in the risk of ovarian cancer in women who use talc on their genitals, the evidence isn’t completely clear.  Leading cancer charities claim that many of the more harmful chemicals used in talc several decades ago have now been removed.  Johnson & Johnson denied that its products ever contained asbestos and insisted that they do not cause cancer.  The pharmaceutical giant added that several studies have shown its talc to be safe and insisted the verdict was a product of a "fundamentally unfair process".  The US Food and Drug Administration commissioned a study of a variety of talc samples, including J&J, from 2009 to 2010. It found no asbestos in any of them.  The prosecution lawyer told the court that it, and Johnson & Johnson, had used flawed testing methods.  The verdict is the largest payout Johnson & Johnson has faced over allegations its talc products cause cancer. #JohnsonJohnson, #£36bn, #women, #talc, #gave, #them, #cancer #Courts

Talcum Powder Lawsuit | Ovarian Cancer
 
00:16
In studies dating back to 1982, it has been found that when talc products are applied to the genital region, the particles can travel through the female reproductive system, leading to the growth of cancer cells in the ovaries. In 2013, a lawsuit was brought against Johnson and Johnson in which executives for the company admitted they had known about this link for years, but did not deem the risk significant enough to warn consumers. In February 2016, a $72 million verdict was awarded to the family of a woman who died from ovarian cancer after using Johnson & Johnson's talcum products for more than 35 years. In this case, the jury found Johnson & Johnson liable for failing to warn the plaintiff about the risk of ovarian cancer associated with her use of talcum powder. Ten million dollars in compensatory damages and $62 million in punitive damages were awarded. In May 2016, a $55 million verdict was awarded to another woman diagnosed with ovarian cancer from using Johnson & Johnson's talc-powder products. The jury awarded $5 million in compensatory damages and $50 million in punitive damages.

Beasley Allen principal and founder Jere Beasley is calling on Johnson & Johnson to add an ovarian cancer warning to its talcum powder products like Johnson’s Baby Powder. At the most recent talc trial, held in California, plaintiffs lawyers introduced into evidence talcum powder products from other manufacturers that contain a warning that regular use in the genital area may increase risk for ovarian cancer. Beasley says other evidence shows J&J has known about this risk for decades but still refuses to warn consumers. The California jury awarded plaintiff Eva Echeverria $417 million, holding J&J liable for her ovarian cancer.

Johnson & Johnson Talcum Powder Still Causing Devastating Health Effects - America's Lawyer

Specifically, for the women who have found themselves victims of ovarian cancer as a result of using talcum powder in the genital region. What manufacturers have known (or should have known) for at least 45 years is that the substance can cause chronic inflammation – a condition that medical science has connected with the development of some types of cancer.

Talcum Powder Linked to Ovarian Cancer for Lawyers
 
02:51
A South Dakota jury sided with a woman claiming her ovarian cancer was linked to her use of J&J talc powder. The jury stated that J&J should have warned of the risks. Three doctors analyzed the woman's cancer tissue and found talc. They concluded that the body powder was the cause. One of those doctors, Daniel Cramer of Harvard University, has studied the association between talc and cancer for 30 years. He stated that talc is probably a factor in 10,000 cases of ovarian cancer each year. Talc is a mineral made up primarily of magnesium, silicon, and oxygen. As a powder, it absorbs moisture well and helps cut down on friction. It is estimated that 20% to 40% of women use talc powder regularly on their genital area. This usage occurs either through direct application, or as a result of tampons, sanitary pads and diaphragms that have been dusted with talc. Ovarian cancer is the eighth most common cancer in women, and the fifth leading cause of female cancer deaths. Each year in the U.S. about 22,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer, and about 15,000 die from it. The FDA stated in 1993 that it was aware of dangers due to talc, but to this day has not taken any action on the problem. The FDA has even denied petitions requesting that talcum powder products be required to have warnings on their labels. In 2002, the president of the industry's Cosmetic Toiletry and Fragrance Association, Edward Kavanaugh, conceded that talc is toxic and "can reach the human ovaries." The International Agency for Research (IARC) on Cancer said that based on evidence from human studies, the IARC classifies the perineal (genital) use of talc-based body powder as "possibly carcinogenic to humans." Anticancer Research published a 'meta-analysis,' or large scale review, of 16 previous published studies involving 11,933 women and found a 33 percent increased risk of ovarian cancer was confirmed.

Talcum powder cancer risk: Man wins $117m in Johnson's baby powder lawsuit
 
06:29
Johnson & Johnson has been ordered to pay a total of $117 million to an American man who claims Johnson’s baby powder gave him cancer.The company was this week told to pay an additional $80 million to Stephen Lanzo on top of previous winnings of $37 million.Judges found that the 46-year-old’s mesothelioma cancer was caused by regular use of talcum powder.Mesothelioma is a cancer that develops in the lining of several of the body's organs. It mainly affects the lungs but can also affect the lining of the heart, tummy or testicles.It is nearly always linked to asbestos exposure, with around 2,700 people diagnosed with the condition each year in the UK.Most cases occur in people aged 60-80 and men are affected more commonly than women.Mesothelioma is notoriously difficult to treat and at the time it’s diagnosed, it’s usually fatal. Symptoms include shortness of breath, pain in the chest or lower back, and excessive sweating.Cancer Research UK notes that before the 1970s, talcum powder was often contaminated with asbestos fibres which are known to cause cancers when inhaled.But since then, all home products containing talcum powder are legally obliged to be asbestos-free. Lanzo’s lawsuit claimed that Johnson & Johnson knew its products were contaminated with asbestos but did nothing to warn the public.  Lung cancer signs and symptoms Thu, January 11, 2018 Chesty dry coughs could be due to a common cold, but they could also be a sign of something more serious, like lung cancer. Here are the main signs to be aware of. Play slideshow Lung cancer signs and symptoms The International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified genital talcum powder use as a possible cancer-causing agent, but more research is required.In 2016, a US study found a link between talc and ovarian cancer if the particles travel through the fallopian tubes to the ovaries.Researchers studied more than 2,000 women with ovarian cancer and a similar-sized group of women who were free of disease. Overall, they found a 33 percent increase in the risk of ovarian cancer with genital talc use.The NHS states that the study was too small to be conclusive, but does note that gynaecologists recommend using plain, unperfumed soaps to gently wash the area around the vagina, as opposed to talc or perfumed soaps, gels and antiseptics. “More research will undoubtedly follow, and results from studies will be more convincing. Until then, if women are concerned they could avoid using talc in this way.”GETTYSymptoms of ovarian cancer include feeling bloated, getting full quickly after eating, needing to urinate more often than normal and unintentional weightless.Johnson & Johnson is currently facing over 6,000 similar lawsuits relating to talcum powder. The majority of those relate to women and the link with ovarian cancer.In 2017, the company was ordered to pay more than $110 million to an American woman who said she developed ovarian cancer after decades of using of its talc-based product

Talcum Powder May Increase the Risk of Ovarian Cancer
 
01:52
Talcum-powder products, like Johnson’s Baby Powder or Shower to Shower, have a long history of use in feminine hygiene. Many thousands of women across the United States, at some point in their lives, have used these products in the genital area, either as a body powder or as a component of tampons, diaphragms, or condoms. Johnson & Johnson is widely considered a trusted household name, and the company’s talc products have been heavily marketed to adult females in the past. Unfortunately, while nothing could seem more harmless, studies show that the use of talcum-powder products in the female genital area may be associated with an increased risk for ovarian cancer.  There are a number of people who believe that women should have already been aware that the use of talcum powder may pose a dangerous risk for cancer, but a warning has never been included in the packaging with talc products. After numerous studies showing the potential cancer link, lawsuits have now been filed against Johnson & Johnson, claiming that the company knew about the risk for decades and chose not to warn their customers. In fact, some evidence suggests that the company should have been aware of the dangers after a study in 1971. The manufacturers of health and hygiene products have a duty to research their products, make sure they are safe, and warn the public of potential side effects and complications. When they fail to do so, victims of these dangerous products and their families have the right to hold the companies responsible for what has happened to them. If you or a loved one developed ovarian cancer after using a talc product, the McGartland Law Firm is here to help. We are currently reviewing talcum-powder cases, and we would be happy to answer your questions about your rights as a consumer. To learn more, call us today. http://www.mcgartland.com/

...............................Talc‬, ‪Cancer‬, ‪Johnson & Johnson‬‬....................... From: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-35648252 A jury in the US state of Missouri has ordered Johnson & Johnson (J&J) to pay $72m (£51m) to the family of a woman who claimed her death was linked to use of the company's Baby Powder talc. Jackie Fox from Birmingham, Alabama died of ovarian cancer last year, aged 62, having used the talc for decades. Her family argued that the firm knew of talc risks and failed to warn users. J&J denied the claim and is said to be considering an appeal. Researchers say links with ovarian cancer are unproven. A company spokeswoman said: "We have no higher responsibility than the health and safety of consumers, and we are disappointed with the outcome of the trial. "We sympathise with the plaintiff's family but firmly believe the safety of cosmetic talc is supported by decades of scientific evidence." Other cases pending: The verdict at the end of the three-week trial was the first time damages have been awarded by a US jury over talc claims. More than 1,000 similar cases are pending nationwide and lawyers said thousands more could now be filed. The jury in Ms Fox's case deliberated for five hours before finding Johnson & Johnson liable for fraud, negligence and conspiracy. The award constituted $10m in damages and $62m in punitive damages. "This case clearly was a bellwether and clearly the jury has seen the evidence and found it compelling," said Stanford University law professor Nora Freeman Engstrom. "The jury was distressed by the company's conduct." However, she said the size of the award was unlikely to survive. "Big jury verdicts do tend to be reined in during the course of the appellate process and I expect that to be the case here," she said. 'Small risk' Cancer Research UK says evidence for a link between talc use and ovarian cancer is "still uncertain". "Even if there is a risk it is likely to be fairly small," the charity says. Ovarian cancer charity Ovacome says causes of the disease are still unknown but are likely to be "a combination of many different inherited and environmental factors, rather than one cause such as talc". It says that in 2003, results of 16 studies involving 12,000 women showed that using talc increased the risk of ovarian cancer by around a third, and that a 2013 review of US studies involving 18,000 women had similar results for genital, but not general, talcum powder use. However, it warns that studies of this type "can suffer from bias" and there were "uncertainties" around the results. "A large well-designed American study in 2000 involving nearly 80,000 women found no link between using talc and the risk of ovarian cancer," it says. The charity says that even if using talc does raise the ovarian cancer risk by a third, "to put it into context, smoking and drinking increases the risk of oesophageal cancer by 30 times". "Ovarian cancer is a rare disease, and increasing a small risk by a third still gives a small risk." From: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-35648252

Johnson & Johnson Baby Talcum Powder Leads to Cancer?
 
03:11
Johnson & Johnson has been ordered by a US jury to pay $55m to a woman who said that using the company’s talc-powder products for feminine hygiene caused her to develop ovarian cancer. Is it safe to use talcum powder? Read more The verdict is the second straight trial loss for the company, which is facing approximately 1,200 lawsuits accusing it of not adequately warning consumers about its talc-based products’ cancer risks. Following a three-week trial in Missouri state court, jurors deliberated for about a day before returning a verdict in favour of the plaintiff, Gloria Ristesund. J&J spokeswoman Carol Goodrich said the verdict contradicted 30 years of research supporting the safety of cosmetic talc. The company intended to appeal the jury’s decision and would continue defending its products’ safety, she said. Ristesund said she used J&J’s talc-based powder products – which include the well-known Baby Powder and Shower to Shower Powder – on her genitals for decades. Her lawyers told how she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and had to undergo a hysterectomy and related surgeries.

The 62-year-old woman had used Johnson & Johnson’s talcum powders for more than 35 years. (Case No. 1422-CC09012-01,Circuit Court of the City of St. Louis, Missouri) According to Bloomberg Business, this is the first time a state court jury ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay damages in a talcum powder cancer lawsuit. Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Studies The largest U.S. study linking talcum powder to ovarian cancer was the “Nurses’ Health Study” that began in the late 1970s. By 1982, the study involved 78,630 nurses aged 30 to 55 years old who frequently used talcum powder in the genital area. Through June 1, 1996, 307 women were diagnosed with ovarian cancer, according to the study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute in December 1999. More recently, researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital found that regular use of talcum powder could increase the risk of ovarian cancer by 20 to 30 percent. The study was published in the Cancer Prevention Research journal in June 2013.

Johnson baby Powder lawsuit Cancer

Johnson & Johnson was ordered by a Missouri jury to pay over $110 million to a Virginia woman who says she developed ovarian cancer after decades of using its talc-based products for feminine hygiene. The verdict in state court in St Louis on Thursday was the largest so far to arise out of about 2,400 lawsuits accusing J&J of not adequately warning consumers about the cancer risks of talc-based products including its well-known Johnson's Baby Powder. Welcome to Fresh updates, Please consider subscribing if you haven't already. US multinational Johnson and Johnson on on Thursday 4th May has been ordered to pay around 110 Million Dollars to a woman who says the firm’s talcum powder caused her to develop ovarian cancer. 62 years old Lois Slemp, from Virginia, Missouri said she developed the cancer after four decades of using talc products for feminine hygiene. She alleged that J&J concealed the possibility that talc in its baby powder and Shower to Shower products can cause cancer. The firm is facing around 2,400 pending lawsuits from customers who claim it did not adequately warn them about its talc-based products’ alleged cancer risks. Mr Ted Meadows, a lawyer for Misss Slemp said, Once again we've shown that these companies ignored the scientific evidence and continue to deny their responsibilities to the women of America. Miss Slemp is currently undergoing chemotherapy after her ovarian cancer initially diagnosed in 2012 returned, and spread to her liver. Ovarian cancer is believed to be caused when the ovaries become inflamed, which can happen when they are irritated by a foreign substance. Experts said that, while the entry of the powder through the genital tract could be an issue, using it on the chest or face is unlikely to cause problems. The World Health Organisation's International Agency for Research on Cancer, classifies the use of talc-based body powder in the genital region as "possibly carcinogenic". Johnson and Johnson has so far, faced four trials, three of which it has lost including verdicts of $72 million, $70 million and $55 million. Johnson and Johnson, in a statement said, it sympathized with women impacted by ovarian cancer but planned to appeal. They also said that, We are preparing for additional trials this year and we continue to defend the safety of Johnson's Baby Powder. Please subscribe to get latest updates instantly.

Woman awarded $110m in talc cancer case
 
06:06
Pharmaceutical firm Johnson & Johnson (J&J) has been ordered by a US court to pay more than $110m (£85m) to a woman who says she developed ovarian cancer after using its talcum powder. Lois Slemp, 62, from Virginia, Missouri said she developed the cancer after four decades of using talc products. Prosecutors argued the company did not adequately warn about the cancer risks associated with the items.  Experts say links with ovarian cancer are unproven. J&J says it will appeal.  The verdict in a St Louis state court is the largest so far to arise out of about 2,400 lawsuits against J&J over its talc-based products, Reuters news agency reports.  Ms Slemp is currently undergoing chemotherapy after her ovarian cancer initially diagnosed in 2012 returned and spread to her liver. She said the products she used included J&J's Baby Powder and Shower to Shower Powder. "Once again we've shown that these companies ignored the scientific evidence and continue to deny their responsibilities to the women of America," said Ted Meadows, a lawyer for Ms Slemp. Blood tests spot ovarian cancer early Simpler testing 'saves lives'  The verdict included $5.4m in compensatory damages and $105m in punitive damages against J&J. The company said it planned to appeal. "We are preparing for additional trials this year and we continue to defend the safety of Johnson's Baby Powder," it said in a statement. "We deeply sympathise with the women and families impacted by ovarian cancer." J&J lost three jury verdicts last year in cases related to its talc-based products, but won its first trial in March, when a jury in Missouri sided with the company.Is talc safe? James Gallagher, health editor, BBC news website There have been concerns for years that using talcum powder, particularly on the genitals, may increase the risk of ovarian cancer.  But the evidence is not conclusive. The International Agency for Research on Cancer classifies talc used on the genitals as "possibly carcinogenic" because of the mixed evidence.Why is there any debate? The mineral talc in its natural form does contain asbestos and does cause cancer, however, asbestos-free talc has been used in baby powder and other cosmetics since the 1970s. But the studies on asbestos-free talc give contradictory results.  It has been linked to a cancer risk in some studies, but there are concerns that the research may be biased as they often rely on people remembering how much talc they used years ago. Other studies have argued there is no link at all and there is no link between talc in contraceptives such as diaphragms and condoms (which would be close to the ovaries) and cancer.  Also there does not seem to be a "dose-response" for talc, unlike with known carcinogens like tobacco where the more you smoke, the greater the risk of lung cancer.What should women do? The charity Ovacome says there is no definitive evidence and that the worst-case scenario is that using talc increases the risk of cancer by a third. But it ad

Talcum powder cancer risk: Man wins $117m in Johnson's baby powder lawsuit
 
04:07
Johnson & Johnson has been ordered to pay a total of $117 million to an American man who claims Johnson’s baby powder gave him cancer.The company was this week told to pay an additional $80 million to Stephen Lanzo on top of previous winnings of $37 million.Judges found that the 46-year-old’s mesothelioma cancer was caused by regular use of talcum powder.Mesothelioma is a cancer that develops in the lining of several of the body's organs. It mainly affects the lungs but can also affect the lining of the heart, tummy or testicles.It is nearly always linked to asbestos exposure, with around 2,700 people diagnosed with the condition each year in the UK.Most cases occur in people aged 60-80 and men are affected more commonly than women.Mesothelioma is notoriously difficult to treat and at the time it’s diagnosed, it’s usually fatal. Symptoms include shortness of breath, pain in the chest or lower back, and excessive sweating.Cancer Research UK notes that before the 1970s, talcum powder was often contaminated with asbestos fibres which are known to cause cancers when inhaled.But since then, all home products containing talcum powder are legally obliged to be asbestos-free. Lanzo’s lawsuit claimed that Johnson & Johnson knew its products were contaminated with asbestos but did nothing to warn the public.  Lung cancer signs and symptoms Thu, January 11, 2018 Chesty dry coughs could be due to a common cold, but they could also be a sign of something more serious, like lung cancer. Here are the main signs to be aware of. Play slideshow Lung cancer signs and symptoms The International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified genital talcum powder use as a possible cancer-causing agent, but more research is required.In 2016, a US study found a link between talc and ovarian cancer if the particles travel through the fallopian tubes to the ovaries.Researchers studied more than 2,000 women with ovarian cancer and a similar-sized group of women who were free of disease. Overall, they found a 33 percent increase in the risk of ovarian cancer with genital talc use.The NHS states that the study was too small to be conclusive, but does note that gynaecologists recommend using plain, unperfumed soaps to gently wash the area around the vagina, as opposed to talc or perfumed soaps, gels and antiseptics. “More research will undoubtedly follow, and results from studies will be more convincing. Until then, if women are concerned they could avoid using talc in this way.”GETTYSymptoms of ovarian cancer include feeling bloated, getting full quickly after eating, needing to urinate more often than normal and unintentional weightless.Johnson & Johnson is currently facing over 6,000 similar lawsuits relating to talcum powder. The majority of those relate to women and the link with ovarian cancer.In 2017, the company was ordered to pay more than $110 million to an American woman who said she developed ovarian cancer after decades of using of its talc-based product

Cancer patient developed disease after using Johnson & Johnson talcum powder wins $70million payout

Cancer patient who developed disease after using Johnson & Johnson talcum powder wins $70million payout from the company Deborah Giannecchini claimed baby powder use gave her ovarian cancer Her lawsuit claimed the company should attach warnings to the product Mrs Giannecchini used talcum powder in an intimate area for many years Johnson & Johnson claim their product is safe and will appeal the award A jury has awarded a woman $70million in damages against Johnson & Johnson after the woman claimed talcum powder caused her ovarian cancer. Deborah Giannecchini of Modesto, California was diagnosed with the disease in 2012 and accused the company of 'negligent conduct' in making and and marketing the baby powder. The lawsuit claimed Mrs Giannecchini contracted the disease after using baby powder in an intimate area. Jim Onder, Mrs Giannecchini's lawyer, said: 'We are pleased the jury did the right thing. They once again reaffirmed the need for Johnson & Johnson to warn the public of the ovarian cancer risk associated with its product.' However, the company has rejected there is any risk to using their product - even in intimate areas - and will appeal the massive award. Carol Goodrich, spokesman for the company said: 'We deeply sympathize with the women and families impacted by ovarian cancer. We will appeal today's verdict because we are guided by the science, which supports the safety of Johnson's Baby Powder.' Earlier this year, two other lawsuits in St Louis ended in jury verdicts worth a combined $127million. But two others in New Jersey were thrown out by a judge who said there wasn't reliable evidence that talc leads to ovarian cancer, an often fatal but relatively rare form of cancer. Ovarian cancer accounts for about 22,000 of the 1.7million new cases of cancer expected to be diagnosed in the US this year. About 2,000 women have filed similar suits, and lawyers are reviewing thousands of other potential cases, most generated by ads touting the two big verdicts out of St. Louis - a $72million award in February to relatives of an Alabama woman who died of ovarian cancer, and a $55million award in May to a South Dakota survivor of the disease. Much research has found no link or a weak one between ovarian cancer and using baby powder for feminine hygiene, and most major health groups have declared talc harmless. Johnson & Johnson, whose baby powder dominates the market, maintains it's perfectly safe. But Onder of the Onder Law Firm in suburban St Louis, which represented plaintiffs in all three St Louis cases, cited other research that began connecting talcum powder to ovarian cancer in the 1970s. He said case studies have indicated that women who regularly use talc on their genital area face up to a 40 per cent higher risk of developing ovarian cancer. Onder has accused Johnson & Johnson of marketing toward overweight women, blacks and Hispanics - the very same women most at risk for ovarian cancer, he said. Factors known to increase a women's risk of ovarian cancer include age, obesity, use of estrogen therapy after menopause, not having any children, certain genetic mutations and personal or family history of breast or ovarian cancer. The International Agency for Research on Cancer classifies genital use of talc as 'possibly carcinogenic'. The National Toxicology Program, made up of parts of several different government agencies, has not fully reviewed talc. Talc is a mineral that is mined from deposits around the world, including the US. The softest of minerals, it's crushed into a white powder. It's been widely used in cosmetics and other personal care products to absorb moisture since at least 1894, when Johnson & Johnson's Baby Powder was launched. But it's mainly used in a variety of other products, including paint and plastics. The two St Louis verdicts were the first talcum powder cases in which money was awarded. A federal jury in 2013 sided with another South Dakota woman, but it ordered no damages, a spokeswoman for Onder's firm said. Johnson & Johnson has been targeted before by health and consumer groups over ingredients in its products, including Johnson's No More Tears baby shampoo. The company agreed in 2012 to eliminate 1,4-dioxane and formaldehyde, both considered probable carcinogens, from all products by 2015. WAS THE JURY CORRECT TO AWARD $70M? WHAT IS TALC? Talc is a mineral that is mined from deposits around the world, including the U.S. The softest of minerals, it's crushed into a white powder. It's been widely used in cosmetics and other personal care products to absorb moisture since at least 1894, when Johnson & Johnson's Baby Powder was launched.

Talcum powder verdict discussed by Beasley Allen principal Ted Meadows on WIAT
 
02:59
Beasley Allen attorney Ted Meadows talked with WIAT News about the latest verdict against Johnson & Johnson, linking its talcum powder products to ovarian cancer. Documents presented at trial indicated Johnson & Johnson knew of the ovarian cancer risk from genital use of talc for decades but refused to warn consumers. Meadows says the Plaintiffs want Johnson & Johnson to add a warning label to its products, but the company so far refuses to do so. For More Information, call 800-898-2034 or visit: - http://www.tedmeadows-law.com - http://www.beasleyallen.com - http://www.talcumpowder-cancer.com Transcription: ..responsible for giving women ovarian cancer from talcum powder? Two lawsuits says it's pharmaceutical giant Johnson and Johnson and there's a call for the company to pull the powder from store shelves. Joining me to talk about this is lead attorney Ted Meadows of the Beasley Allen Law Firm. First of all, lets find out what do you want Johnson and Johnson to do? Ultimately, as an attorney, I want them to compensate my clients for the pain and suffering they've been through with being diagnosed with ovarian cancer. But, I know that in talking to all of these women, and as a true believer in our civil justice system in this country, it is a way to get the powerful to do what they should do. For Johnson and Johnson it's decades in the making. They should've been warning about the risk of ovarian cancer from genital talc use as early as the 1982 time frame. So that is what we want to see happen. Right. Ted, I want to put something up on the screen and show people about the impact of ovarian cancer. We're told that about 22,280 will receive a new diagnosis of ovarian cancer about 14,240 women will die from ovarian cancer and ovarian cancer ranks fifth in cancer deaths. Speak to that for me. Yeah, I mean, ovarian cancer is the diagnosis that often times comes too late. So, many women confuse their symptoms with other issues in their lives and they get a late diagnosis. Our experts and epidemiologists, who have been studying this for decades, say that 10% of those numbers is directly attributable to genital talc use. So, Johnson and Johnson Baby Powder is causing 10% of these new diagnosis each year. Now, you have won awards to the tune, two different awards, to the tune of $112 million dollars, but you also want them to pull the talcum powder from the store shelves. Getting push back from that because they'll lose a lot of money. Yeah, I mean, our beef is with using talcum powder in the genital area. Talcum powder is used in a lot of different types of products, but there's no science to say that it causes problems in other, in other parts of the body. But, it certainly causes problems with ovarian cancer. I think it should be pulled from the shelves and, but at a minimum, women should be allowed to make an informed choice as to how they're going to use the product. Those awards are out there, those two big awards are out there, but you're still getting calls, still taking calls from women, right? That's right. Thousands of calls. We've had well in excess of ten thousand calls over the last two years about this, and, of course, the calls have picked up since these verdicts have come down. And, juries have seen the evidence and they've called on Johnson and Johnson to start warning and yeah, we're getting calls every day and we 're continuing to investigate cases to see if we can prosecute for women who are interested. Ok, I am sure a lot of women who are going through this are really glad that you are out there fighting for them. Ted Meadows, thank you so much for coming in and talking about this. Thank You. We appreciate it.

Plaintiffs Lawyers in Talcum Powder Trial Reflect on $110 Million Verdict
 
03:22
A fourth jury expressed shock and disdain after overwhelming evidence showed pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson’s deadly talc-containing products remain on the market without a warning to its female consumers. The products, including Baby Powder, have already sealed the fate of more than 100,000 unsuspecting women. With each new favorable verdict, plaintiff’s attorneys Ted Meadows and Danielle Mason with the Beasley Allen Law Firm have more opportunities to inform the public about the dangers of genital talc use. Since 1982, Johnson & Johnson has rejected the scientific link between its talc-containing products and the increased risk of ovarian cancer. Although the company has received a warning about the cancer-causing mineral with each shipment of talc since 2006, it refuses to pass the same warning along to its consumers. Three trials brought by other women suffering from ovarian cancer led to jury verdicts last year of $70 million, $72 million and $55 million against the New Jersey-based health care company.

Story highlights22 women successfully sued Johnson & Johnson over their Shower to Shower and Baby PowderThis was the first such case to successfully argue talcum powder contains asbestosJohnson & Johnson maintains its powder is safe and plans to appeal (CNN)After 8 hours of deliberations Thursday, a St. Louis jury awarded $4.62 billion to 22 women who sued pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson alleging their ovarian cancer was caused by using its powder as a part of their daily feminine hygiene routine. The jury award includes $550 million in compensatory damages and $4.14 billion in punitive damages. It's the largest verdict against the company that has sold Baby Powder and Shower to Shower brand talcum powder for decades. The jurors sat through weeks of testimony listening to experts who explained the complicated science, workers at Johnson & Johnson who said their product was safe. They also heard from the cancer survivors themselves and the loved ones of six plaintiffs who haved from their cancer. Judge overturns record verdict in Johnson & Johnson talcum powder trialThis is not the first case brought against the company, nor will it be the last. There are thousands of cases currently making their way through court systems all around the country. In five of the cases, women who sued have had a favorable verdict. All of those cases are in various stages of appeal. A jury ruled in Johnson & Johnson's favor in one lawsuit in California last November. In October, a judge reversed two verdicts in favor of the company. A Missouri appeals court tossed out a $55 million verdict in June citing jurisdictional issues.Read MoreThe science is still up for debate. Concerns about a link between talc and ovarian cancer started surfacing around 1971, when scientists wrote about finding talc particles embedded in ovarian and cervical tumor tissue.Does talcum powder cause cancer? A legal and scientific battle ragesSince then some studies have shown that there is an elevated risk in women who use talc in their genital area for a long period of time. Other studies have not shown a connection. In 2006, the International Agency for Research in Cancer, which falls under the World Health Organization, decided to classify the use of talc in the genital area as "possibly carcinogenic to humans." In the US, government agencies and medical associations that track what causes cancer believe the topic needs more research to know for sure.The US National Toxicology Program, part of the US Department of Health and Human Services, keeps a congressionally mandated list of "agents, substances, mixtures, and exposure circumstances that are known or reasonably anticipated to cause cancer in humans." Talc is not among the 248 listed; however, in 2010, when it was up for consideration to be included in the list, the agency explained that it has not fully reviewed talc as a possible carcinogen.Johnson & Johnson hit with $25.75 million verdict in talc-asbestos caseA separate but

New Jersey couple awarded $37 million in talcum powder case

Story highlightsDeposits of talc are often found near deposits of cancer-causing mineralsStudies have shown the risk of cross-contamination during mining (CNN)A jury in Middlesex County, New Jersey, awarded $30 million in compensatory damages on Thursday to a man who got cancer after decades of using talcum powder. His wife was awarded $7 million in damages. Banker Stephen Lanzo said he used Johnson & Johnson products like Shower to Shower and Baby Powder for more than 30 years, and he claimed that inhaling the powder caused his mesothelioma, an aggressive and deadly cancer that impacts the lining of the lungs. Deposits of talc, one of the Earth's softest minerals, are often located near deposits of the minerals that constitute asbestos, and studies have shown the risk of cross-contamination during mining. Johnson & Johnson said its talc products do not contain asbestos, which, it noted, has been a legal requirement since the 1970s. A batch of similar asbestos-related cases is making its way through the courts, with one set to go to trial in May in South Carolina. A jury in California found in favor of Johnson & Johnson in an asbestos-related case in November. Lanzo's case was the first to go to trial in New Jersey, the home state of Johnson & Johnson. Read MoreJohnson & Johnson and other talcum powder companies face thousands of separate but related cases that draw a connection between genital talc use and ovarian cancer. In this case, the jury awarded $7 million to Kendra, Stephen Lanzo's wife, and $30 million to him, with Johnson & Johnson getting 70% of the liability and Imerys Talc, a supplier of the mineral, liable for 30%.

"While we are disappointed with this decision, the jury has further deliberations to conduct in this trial and we will reserve additional comment until the case is fully completed," said Carol Goodrich, a spokeswoman for Johnson & Johnson.Imerys Talc spokeswoman Gwen Myers said in a statement, "Our hearts go out to those affected by all forms of cancer. We are disappointed by the jury's decision, but we remain confident that talc did not cause Mr. Lanzo's cancer. The evidence was clear that his asbestos exposure came from a different source such as the asbestos found in his childhood home or schools, and the jury's decision is inconsistent with a recently published study of workers who mined and milled talc all day over the course of more than 50 years that did not find a single case of mesothelioma.

Johnson & Johnson ordered to pay $4.7 billion to women who say baby powder gave them cancer Johnson & Johnson, Johnson and Johnson, talcum powder, baby powder, ovarian cancer, cancer talc https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTe4c2h3qpOZVvRXGx6wVQw?sub_confirmation=1 Johnson’s baby powder. (Jeff Chiu/Associated Press) A jury in Missouri ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $4.69 billion in damages to 22 women who claim the company’s talcum powder products caused ovarian cancer. Following an eight-hour deliberation Thursday, jurors awarded the women $550 million in compensatory damages and another $4.14 billion in punitive damages, their attorney, Mark Lanier, said in a press release. At issue were claims that the pharmaceutical giant sold powder products that were contaminated with asbestos — once a pollutant in talc that has been linked to lung cancer — though there is much debate about whether talcum powder can lead to ovarian cancer. Johnson & Johnson said in a statement that it is “deeply disappointed in the verdict.” “Johnson & Johnson remains confident that its products do not contain asbestos and do not cause ovarian cancer and intends to pursue all available appellate remedies,” it said. “Every verdict against Johnson & Johnson in this court that has gone through the appeals process has been reversed and the multiple errors present in this trial were worse than those in the prior trials which have been reversed.” [Does talcum powder cause ovarian cancer?] For decades, talcum powder has been used on babies. Women sometimes use it, too, particularly on genital areas to absorb moisture and reduce odors. According to the complaint filed last year in the Circuit Court of the City of St. Louis, the women routinely used Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower, an absorbent body powder, to “dust their perineum for feminine hygiene purposes.” They said they later developed ovarian cancer. Following Thursday’s ruling, the women’s lawyer said that the case led to the first talc- and asbestos-included ovarian cancer verdict in the United States. “For over 40 years, Johnson & Johnson has covered up the evidence of asbestos in their products,” Lanier said in the press release. “We hope this verdict will get the attention of the J&J board and that it will lead them to better inform the medical community and the public about the connection between asbestos, talc, and ovarian cancer. The company should pull talc from the market before causing further anguish, harm, and death from a terrible disease. “J&J sells the same powders in a marvelously safe corn starch variety. If J&J insists on continuing to sell talc, they should mark it with a serious warning.” But Johnson & Johnson said in its statement that the trial was “a fundamentally unfair process,” noting most of the women were not from Missouri, where the testimonies were heard. The company added that the verdict “which awarded the exact same amounts to all plaintiffs irrespective of their individual facts, and differences in applicable law, reflects that the evidence in the case was simply overwhelmed by the prejudice of this type of proceeding.” As The Washington Post’s Laurie McGinley reported, there is a debate about whether talcum powder can cause ovarian canc

Johnson & Johnson to pay $4.7bn damages in talc cancer case
 
07:22
Johnson & Johnson has been ordered to pay $4.7bn (£3.6bn) in damages to 22 women who alleged that its talc products caused them to develop ovarian cancer.A jury in the US state of Missouri initially awarded $550m in compensation and added $4.1bn in punitive damages.The verdict comes as the pharmaceutical giant battles some 9,000 legal cases involving its signature baby powder.J&J said it was "deeply disappointed" and plans to appeal.In the six-week trial, the women and their families said they developed ovarian cancer after using baby powder and other talc products for decades.Of the 22 women represented in this case, six have died from ovarian cancer.Their lawyers alleged the company knew its talc was contaminated with asbestos since the 1970s but failed to warn consumers about the risks.Talc is a mineral and can sometimes be found in the ground in close proximity to asbestos.J&J denied that its products ever contained asbestos and insisted that they do not cause cancer.The pharmaceutical giant added that several studies have shown its talc to be safe and said the verdict was a product of a "fundamentally unfair process".The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) commissioned a study of a variety of talc samples, including J&J, from 2009 to 2010.It found no asbestos in any of them.The prosecution lawyer told the Missouri court that the FDA and Johnson & Johnson had used flawed testing methods.There have been concerns for years that using talcum powder, particularly on the genitals, may increase the risk of ovarian cancer - but the evidence is not conclusive.The International Agency for Research on Cancer classifies talc used on the genitals as "possibly carcinogenic" because of the mixed evidence.The mineral talc in its natural form does contain asbestos and does cause cancer, however, asbestos-free talc has been used in baby powder and other cosmetics since the 1970s.But the studies on asbestos-free talc give contradictory results.It has been linked to a cancer risk in some studies, but there are concerns that the research may be biased as they often rely on people remembering how much talc they used years ago.Other studies have argued there is no link at all and there is no link between talc in contraceptives such as diaphragms and condoms (which would be close to the ovaries) and cancer.Also there does not seem to be a "dose-response" for talc, unlike carcinogens like tobacco for example, where the more you smoke, the greater the risk of lung cancer.The charity Ovacome says the evidence for a link is weak but even if talc does increase the risk of ovarian cancer, studies suggest it would be only by around a third.It stresses this is a small increase in risk and, because ovarian cancer is a relatively rare disease, the increase in risk is small too.Also, ovarian cancer risk is affected by many different factors - inherited and environmental ones - not just talc alone.The charity adds: "So even if talc does increase the risk slightly, very few w

http://www.spiritdetox.com clean, and feed your body! You might be surprised to discover how much talc you are exposed to on a daily basis. Hosts of commonly used cosmetic products like make-up, body powders, deodorants, and even the powder used to keep infants bottoms protected contain talc as a primary ingredient. The dangers of talc are exhibited in studies that indicate its similarity in structure to asbestos. We've all heard the horror stories about cancers sourced through asbestos, and the diminutive particulate texture of talc means that it can be inhaled rather easily without notice must like asbestos. The Talc and Cancer Connection Talc has been associated with the development of lung cancer if inhaled on a regular basis. Inhaling excessive amounts of talc has been linked to several infant deaths over recent years, creating a realistic reason to be concerned. When talc invades the lungs, it can cause an inflammatory reaction in the lungs and cause short-term issues like pneumonia or long term problems with lung disease. Talc miners, much like coal miners, have a greater likelihood of developing lung cancer and also show a higher rate of mortality for unspecified reasons. These are not good indicators as to talc's effect on our health. This is of great concern to women who use talc-based facial powder cosmetics, which fostered a great movement of interest in bare mineral make-up in past years. Certainly, these dangers of talc are of an even greater concern to well-meaning mothers who routinely dust their infant's with baby powder. One recent study showed that women who used talc in the genital region have a higher chance of developing advanced ovarian cancer, and this is a primary placement zone for baby powder. Why Take Chances -- Use Organic Natural Clay Powder There's just no reason to take chances with your health or your precious baby's well being. Toss the talc and pick up an unrefined, unfragranced, all-natural clay baby powder that absorbs moisture with pure calcium montmorillonite clay. Clay minerals are completely safe even for consumption, and have been used in their powder form by indigenous cultures for health and wellness since before recorded history.

Jere Beasley discusses J&J Talc Verdict with Ringler Radio
 
30:36
Beasley Allen Principal & Founder Jere Beasley recently visited the Ringler Radio to discuss the Feb. 22 jury verdict that found Johnson & Johnson liable for a woman’s ovarian cancer death related to her use of the company’s talcum powder products. The St. Louis jury awarded the family of Jacqueline Fox $72 million, which included $10 million in actual damages and $62 million in punitive damages - $1 million for each year of her life, they said. Ms. Fox used Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower daily for more than 35 years for feminine hygiene. During the trial, internal documents indicated J&J knew about a link between the use of talcum powder on the genitals and an increased risk of ovarian cancer, but failed to warn the public of the danger. An expert at trial testified at least 45,000 women have died as a result of ovarian cancer that could be attributed to talcum powder use on the genitals, and estimated 1,500 women will die within the next year as a result of talc use. “Johnson & Johnson had notice as far back as 1979 that there was a risk of ovarian cancer connected to the use of their product, talc,” Mr. Beasley says.

Knightline Legal: Talcum Powder

Visit www.knightlinelegal.com for more information. Millions of men and women use talcum powder for daily hygiene, however, many women who have used talcum powder on their genitals may be putting themselves at an increased risk of developing Ovarian Cancer. The Cancer Prevention Research Medical Journal published a report last year which looked at the research of about 2,000 women who used talcum powder on the genital area and found that those women had a 20-30% higher risk of ovarian cancer. It is estimated that nearly 10,000 cases of ovarian cancer are caused by problems with talcum powder each year. In October 2013, after a trial involving a 56 year old woman who developed ovarian cancer after using talcum powder for several decades, a South Dakota jury found there was sufficient evidence to link Johnson Shower- to- shower body powder to ovarian cancer. If you or a loved one used Talcum Powder and were later diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer, you may be entitled to significant compensation from the manufacturer.
