Since the 1970’s there have been numerous studies proving that talcum based powders can cause ovarian cancer in women. One of the main produces of these talcum based powders is the company Johnson and Johnson. Johnson and Johnson have been aware of the fatal and disastrous results of their products, such as Baby Powder and Shower-to-Shower, for many years but yet they continued to leave their products on the market without a warning label.
In 2013 a jury ruled that Johnson and Johnson should have included a warning about the use of their products around the genital area. A study found that use of these products can cause a 92 percent increased risk of women developing ovarian cancer. Even after all of this Johnson and Johnson still does not include warning labels on their talcum based products.
