Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder has been implicated in hundreds of cases of ovarian cancer in women. Many women have used talcum powder for decades for feminine hygiene believing in the safety of the powder. Johnson & Johnson markets the product for “freshness” and “comfort”. Many advertisements suggest that use of the powder in the vaginal area would mask odors and adsorb excess wetness.
Women were not told of a medical study in 1982 that found a 92% increase in ovarian cancer in women who reported genital talc use. There had been a prior study that suggested this connection back in 1971. Since the 1982 study by Dr. Daniel Cramer there have been 27 studies on the connection between Talcum power and ovarian cancer and most of them have confirmed the relationship.
