Studies indicate that talcum powder can cause ovarian cancer when used by women for perineal and genital hygiene. A highly respected Harvard epidemiologist, Dr. Daniel Cramer, found that as many as 10,000 women develop ovarian cancer each year as a result of using baby powder in the genital area.
The first talcum powder ovarian cancer lawsuit was brought against Johnson & Johnson in federal court in 2013. In that case, the plaintiff won. Since then, there have been dozens of similar lawsuits filed.
