A Virginia woman filled a lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson. She claimed in a latest lawsuit that the use of Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder Caused Cancer. The Virginia woman said that she developed ovarian cancer after decades of using of Johnson & Johnson talc-based products including Baby powder and Shower to Shower Powder for feminine hygiene.

She is recently undergone a chemotherapy as her ovarian cancer initially diagnosed in 2012 returned and spread to her liver and she was too ill to attend the trial

Missouri jury asked the Johnson & Johnson to pay over $110.5 million to a Virginia woman. The decision in state court in St. Louis was the biggest to this point to arise out of about 2,400 complaints condemning the Johnson & Johnson of not suitably warning customers about the cancer risks of talc-based products, including its famous Baby Powder.

Johnson & Johnson, based in Brunswick, New Jersey, revealed in a statement that it would request and disputed the scientific proof behind the plaintiffs’ accusations.

Talc is a limestone that is extracted from deposits around the world, including the U.S. after crushing it in to white powder companies used it in many cosmetics including Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder since it launched in 1849.

Beside in cosmetics this talc is used in paint and plastic.  However there are a number of researches found no link between ovarian cancer and using baby powder for feminine hygiene, and most major health groups have confirmed talc harmless.
