Talcum Powder and Asbestos: What’s the Connection?

Baby powder is made from talcum powder, which is sourced from talc, which is known as the world’s softest mineral. For decades, concerns have been raised that Johnson & Johnson’s talc source is contaminated with cancer-causing asbestos.

Asbestos Contamination in Johnson & Johnson Talcum PowderAsbestos is a mineral known to cause cancer. It is naturally occurring in thin, strand-like formations and can easily break down into microscopic particles. These particles enter the lungs when breathed in and can cause serious inflammation, sometimes leading to a rare and deadly form of cancer called mesothelioma.

Asbestos contamination in talcum powder is also believed to cause ovarian cancer in women who used Johnson & Johnson baby powder for feminine hygiene in the genital area.

In recent years, it’s been revealed that Johnson & Johnson executives raised red flags about the possibility that its baby powder was contaminated with asbestos… as far back as the 1970s.

It is alleged that Johnson & Johnson ignored these warning signs and did not caution consumers about the potential cancer risk.

The company now faces more than 16,000 talcum powder asbestos lawsuits alleging that Johnson & Johnson baby powder causes cancer. In early 2020, Johnson & Johnson pulled its talc-based baby powder products from the North American market.

If you’ve used Johnson & Johnson baby powder and been diagnosed with ovarian cancer or mesothelioma, you may be eligible for a talcum powder asbestos lawsuit and be entitled to compensation.
