The Link Between Talcum Powder and Ovarian Cancer

Talcum Powder Cancer LinkScientific research has revealed a disturbing link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer. Although this topic has been the subject of scientific research and mounting evidence for years, the use of talc remains unregulated. In fact, talcum powder and other talcum-based products remains a big part of feminine products in the United States and worldwide.

Gersowitz, Libo & Korek, P.C. is investigating potential legal claims for ovarian cancer victims whose illnesses may be linked to talcum-based products. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed or died from ovarian cancer, you may be entitled to compensation.

The Facts Behind Talcum Powder and Cancer Links

Talc is a naturally occurring mineral composed of hydrated magnesium silicate in a fibrous form. Talc is used in feminine products because of its ability to reduce skin friction and absorb moisture. Nevertheless, talcum powder is a proven carcinogen. Researchers believe that the link between the use of talc and ovarian cancer is attributed to the particles traveling through the female reproductive system, which ultimately causes prolonged inflammation of the ovaries and may promote the growth of ovarian cancer cells.

Talc has remained unregulated while millions of people are unsuspectingly exposed to the toxic substance. A recent study led by Dr. Margaret A. Gates and funded by the National Cancer Institute and the National Institute of Health, revealed a 36 to 41 percent increase in the risk of ovarian cancer in women who use talcum-based products for personal hygiene.

Products Affected

The products for which use may be linked to ovarian cancer include:

  • JOHNSON’S Baby Powder
  • SHOWER to SHOWER Absorbent Body Powder
  • And all other talcum powder products

In response to the concerns of many individuals about the link between talcum-based products and ovarian cancer, Gersowitz, Libo & Korek is investigating the potential lawsuits for victims.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers.
