Talcum powder is a widely used bathroom merchandise, offered by companies like Johnson & Johnson as Baby Powder or Shower to Shower. Lately, a jury trial awarded $ 190 million in damages, which found Johnson & Johnson failed to warn users about the risk of ovarian cancer.
More than 19,000 cases are filed against Johnson & Johnson (J&J) alleging their talc products trigger ovarian cancer or mesothelioma.

A more recent study found that girls who used talc had almost twice the danger of developing ovarian cancer compared to those which didn't use talc.
The lawsuits filed claims that Johnson & Johnson failed to admit this potential and include warning labels for their products, even in light of their own talc provider adding warning labels.
