Talcum Powder Cancer Lawsuit

An Infant's Exposure To Clouds of Johnson's Baby Powder Could Cause Cancer And Mesothelioma As An Adult

Mothers have been lied to when told Johnson's Baby Powder was safe to use on their babies

Wednesday, February 3, 2021 - Women and mothers are deathly concerned that Johnson's Baby Powder talc may cause cancer to them and their infants. Mothers use talcum powder on their baby's bottom several times per day to reduce chafing and increase dryness between diaper changes. Less chafing and irritation makes a baby more comfortable and more pleasant. Less diaper rash can mean a baby eats and sleeps better, two essentials to an infant's development. Women and mothers now are starting to realize that the benefits of using baby powder may come at an extreme price. Johnson's Baby Powder talc was recently tested by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and found to contain asbestos, a known, deadly carcinogen. Using talcum powder on an infant means exposing them to asbestos that can enter any orifice from the genitals to the eyes, ears, nose, and mouth. Carcinogenic asbestos-contaminated baby powder can also enter into the baby's bloodstream through the skin. The scary part is that the symptoms of ovarian cancer and mesothelioma may not become apparent until decades later. Johnson's Baby Powder and other toiletry, deodorant, makeup, and other cosmetics, have never been tested or regulated until now. The FDA buried its head in the sand until women with ovarian cancer started coming forward and filing lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson for their negligence. Women with ovarian cancer and men and women with mesothelioma all have won hundreds of millions of dollars in punitive damages as compensation for the injury Johnson & Johnson has caused. There are more than 25000 cases awaiting trials brought by women that have ovarian cancer and blame it on their regular and long-term use of Johnson's Baby Powder. Talcum powder cancer attorneys are ready to help individuals and families affected from the asbestos contaminated talc powder.

There are many ways that talc can cause cancer. The first is that the world's softest mineral is mined alongside and sometimes interlaced with asbestos deposits. To mine, talc means to mine asbestos also. Asbestos is a proven carcinogen and breathing means increasing the risk of developing mesothelioma, the hardening of the delicate elastic lining of the lungs that is essential for normal breathing. A mother with several children could breath more talc and asbestos than an asbestos miner when you consider diapering a baby four times per day and having several children. Mothers diapering their infants could be breathing asbestos laced talc every day for a decade as they give birth to their family. Another group that is at risk of inhaling dangerous levels of talc is people that use talc-based antiperspirant deodorants. One brand is Old Spice, another Mennen. Both have made millions by selling spray-on antiperspirant that creates a cloud of talc asbestos. Men and women who use Johnson's Baby Powder or other talc powders on their genitals run the risk of ingesting talc asbestos. Particles of talc have been found permanently lodged in the cancerous ovaries of women who have died from ovarian cancer and used Johnson's Baby Powder for years. Professional barbers using Clubman talc for finishing a man's haircut also can be breathing clouds of talc asbestos every day for their entire careers.
