Asbestos In Talcum Powder

Is Baby Powder Putting You And Your Family At Risk For Cancer?

You would never knowingly risk your health, much less the health of your child. But the companies that produce the products you use may not always share this concern.

One unfortunate example, is the presence of asbestos-contaminated talc in baby powder: A substance that moms use on babies to prevent diaper rash. Additionally, many women have used baby powder in the genital area on a daily basis for years, unknowingly being exposed to asbestos.

If you have developed ovarian cancer or another type of cancer due to repeated use of baby powder contaminated with asbestos, contact an attorney at once.

Asbestos-Containing Talc Is More Common Than You May Realize

It is no secret that asbestos is toxic and can lead to mesothelioma. Yet, companies like Johnson & Johnson continue to supply unaware consumers with baby powder full of asbestos-contaminated talc.

Many other companies use it indiscriminately in their goods as well. Household items made with talcum powder potentially containing asbestos include:

  • Cosmetics such as lipstick and mascara
  • Pharmaceuticals such as supplement pills
  • Food items like chewing gum or polished rice
  • Paint, paper and roofing material

Why are these products contaminated? Talc and asbestos occur naturally together. When mining talc, asbestos may also be present. That dangerous substance can withstand the product manufacturing process and eventually end up in the products we use.

You may have come in contact with asbestos without even knowing it.
