Ladies, you should be careful in putting baby powder on your “lady parts,” you may get cancer!
Jackie Fox, is an Alabama woman allegedly died from ovarian cancer caused by Johnson & Johnson talcum baby powder and other products by them that contained talc for feminine hygiene.
After Fox was diagnosed with cancer, she along with other women have joined together to sue Johnson & Johnson in failure to inform consumers of the damages of talc found in their baby powder.
According to www.cancer.org, “It has been suggested that talcum powder might cause cancer in the ovaries if the powder particles (applied to the genital area or on sanitary napkins, diaphragms, or condoms) were to travel through the vagina, uterus, and fallopian tubes to the ovary.”
However, the evidence of talc causing ovarian cancer is still being researched. Truthfully, one of the main causes of ovarian cancer is due to age, reproduction tissues, birth control, genetics and even diet.
Nevertheless, it should have been advertised that their product contains talc.
During the trial, Fox lawyers argued that the company new the health risk their products containing talc can cause.
This past Monday, Fox family was awarded $10 million in actual damages and $67 million in punitive damages.
A spokesperson from Johnson and Johnson said they are expected to appeal the verdict.
