If you or a loved one has been diagnosed or died from ovarian cancer, you may be entitled to compensation.
Talcum Powder is a proven carcinogen and has remained unregulated while millions of people are unknowingly exposed to the toxic substance.
RECENT MEDICAL STUDIES ABOUT TALCUM POWDER AND CANCER RISK:
A talc ovarian cancer study led by Dr. Margaret A. Gates and funded by the National Cancer Institute and the National Institutes of Health, found a 36 to 41% increase in ovarian cancer from talc use and advised women to immediately stop using the product.
The first talcum ovarian cancer lawsuit was filed in December of 2009 as a toxic tort that seeks damages against several talcum powder mining companies, refiners, manufacturers and product distributors for continuing to manufacture, market, and sell a product that has been medically proven to cause cancers such as ovarian cancer. This talcum powder lawsuit is the first of many other talc-related cancer lawsuits that are to be investigated and filed.
Our attorneys have access to two of the foremost medical experts on the subject of talc and ovarian cancer (Daniel Cramer, MD and John Godieski, MD). Drs. Cramer and Godleski have published medical findings concerning talcum powder and ovarian cancer.
A non-related study published in 1996 was done by examining the ovaries of women who had had them removed for reasons other than ovarian cancer. In that study, talc powder was found in all the ovaries, including the ones from women who did not use talc powder. This suggests that talc powder could even reach the ovaries of women who use talc powder on their babies.
