Years of research point to the possibility that prolonged talc exposure may lead to ovarian cancer. When talc comes into contact with female genitalia, it can travel through the body via the vagina and fallopian tubes, coming into contact with the ovaries. It has been estimated that as many as 10,000 cases of ovarian cancer diagnosed each year may be caused by exposure to talcum powder.
Juries have ruled in favor of consumers against Johnson & Johnson, a large manufacturer that produces numerous talc-based products including baby powder. In February 2016, the family of a woman who died from ovarian cancer after using baby powder every day was awarded $72 million in damages. In May 2016, a woman diagnosed with ovarian cancer related to her use of talcum powder was awarded $55 million in damages from Johnson & Johnson.
