talcum-powder-lawsuit-talcum-powder-cancer-lawsuit-talcum-powder-lawyerJurors in Missouri will hear the second full week of testimony in the sixth talcum powder lawsuit trial. The trial for three deceased women who are believed to have developed cancer after prolonged use of Johnson & Johnson’s talcum powder is the first one held for multiple plaintiffs. The three talcum powder lawsuits in the 22nd Circuit Court in St. Louis are among 3,100 talcum powder cancer complaints pending nationwide alleging that Johnson & Johnson knew about studies showing an association between long-tern genital talc use and ovarian cancer but failed to warn about the risk.

Johnson & Johnson has lost four trials in the Missouri state court where jurors have rendered awards totaling $300 million after finding the company’s Baby Powder and Shower To Shower caused ovarian cancer in women who used the products as part of their feminine hygiene routine. Last month, one jury gave the highest award to date of $110 million to a Virginia woman who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2012. The woman’s case was advanced due to her deteriorating health and she did not attend the trial, according to court records. Prior to the May 4 verdict, the highest award had been $72 million given in February 2016 to the family of an Alabama woman. Unfortunately, she died of ovarian cancer in 2015. In May 2016, a jury awarded a South Dakota woman $55 million and a California woman was awarded $70 million in October.

The firm has been speaking with women and their families who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and have used talcum powder for long term feminine hygiene.

“We are monitoring this trial very closely since this is the first talcum powder cancer trial involving multiple plaintiffs,” says Wright & Schulte LLC.

Talc is a naturally occurring mineral made up of magnesium, silicon, hydrogen, and oxygen. Talc is a popular consumer product due to its ability to absorb moisture, reduce friction, and prevent rashes. The mineral is found in a number of consumer foods and products such as cosmetics, rice, balloons, aspirin, lotion, and chewing gum. According to the American Cancer Society, studies indicate that talcum powder might cause ovarian cancer if talc particles applied to the genital area were to travel through the vagina, uterus, and fallopian tubes to the ovary. Talcum powder cancer lawsuits maintain that more than 20 epidemiological studies conducted over the past four decades show a link between prolonged talc use and ovarian cancer.

Last week in the Missouri state court, jurors heard testimony about the toxicity of talc, its ability to damage human body cells, and how those cells can potentially lead to cancer. The trial centers on lawsuits brought by the families of three women who all used Johnson & Johnson’s Shower to Shower and Baby Powder for decades. The 50-year-old Missouri woman received an ovarian cancer diagnosis two years prior to her death in 2010. A 46-year-old Virginia woman was diagnosed with cancer in 2014 and died last year. A 41-year-old Texas woman was diagnosed with cancer in 2008 and died in 2016. (Talcum Powder Cancer Lawsuits – Case No. 1422-CC09326-01, 22nd Circuit Court, City of St. Louis)
