Last month a St. Louis jury awarded the son of a deceased woman, and the woman's estate, a total of $72 million in a lawsuit accusing Johnson and Johnson of fraud, negligence, and conspiracy. The jury held Johnson and Johnson liable for the death of the woman who had repeatedly used Johnson's Baby Powder, and that talcum powder caused her ovarian cancer. This verdict has brought a flood of attention to the link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer, creating an awareness in the general public that has not previously existed, despite the fact that warnings about talcum powder and ovarian cancer go back to the 1970's.

During the trial, Johnson and Johnson stood by the safety of their product and mounted a vigorous defense against the charges set forth in the lawsuit. Johnson's Baby Powder is one of the flagship products of the pharmaceutical and healthcare corporate giant. Following the talcum powder ovarian cancer lawsuit verdict, Johnson & Johnson ramped up a massive public relations campaign aimed at refuting any possibility that the company's products could have caused ovarian cancer.

Despite Johnson & Johnson's denial of any link between an increase in risk of developing ovarian cancer and adult baby powder use for feminine hygiene, a new study published in the Journal of Epidemiology confirms the jury findings that the use of talcum powder on the genital area or on sanitary napkins, diaphragms or condoms may cause particles to travel through the vagina, uterus, and fallopian tubes into the ovaries causing cancer.

In the most recent study conducted at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston researchers questioned the use of talcum powder in over 4000 women, half of the women had cancer and half did not. They found that the use of talcum powder increased the risk of ovarian cancer by one-third. Dr. Nicolas Wentzensen, of the National Cancer Institute, was not convinced by the result of the study. He is quoted as saying "this new study was not of the most rigorous possible design."

Director of science at the Breast Cancer Fund, Sharima Rasanayagam, recently stated for an article on Yahoo.com that science has known of the link between talc and a 30 percent increase in the risks of ovarian and endometrial cancers "for quite a while". Citing studies he goes on to say, "even though the risk does not rank up there with the likes of cigarette smoking, it is a risk that is completely unnecessary to take."

The Center for Disease Control has reported that approximately 20,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer every year, 3 percent of all cancers in women. Ovarian Cancer is the fifth leading cause of death in women claiming the lives of roughly 14,500 women every year in the United States. Talcum powder is used in baby powder and adult body powders as an antiperspirant for its moisture absorbing properties. It has been found that some talcum powders contain asbestos a substance linked to lung cancer according to the American Cancer Society.
