For decades, companies have touted talcum powder ("baby powder") as a safe product for women and children alike. For this reason, countless women have made it a standard part of their personal hygiene routine.

Experts Warn About The Serious Side Effects
The International Journal of Gynecological Cancer reportedly stated that a woman's risk of developing ovarian cancer increases by 30 to 60 percent if she frequently uses talcum powder on her genital area. The more often she uses it, the higher the risk of cancer.
Long-term use of baby powder on infants has also been associated with the risk of pneumonia and asthma caused by irritation of the lungs.
Juries Have Already Awarded Millions Of Dollars
More than 1,200 talcum powder lawsuits have already been filed across the U.S. In February 2016, a Missouri jury awarded $72 million to the family of a woman who died after using Johnson's Baby Powder for more than three decades. A few months later, the court awarded $55 million to another woman who had used the product for decades before developing ovarian cancer.
