St. Louis — A Missouri state court jury on Thursday awarded over $110 million to a woman claiming she developed ovarian cancer after using Johnson & Johnson’s talcum powder-based products on her genitals for decades, marking the largest verdict yet after five previous trials. Johnson & Johnson is currently facing almost 2000 failure to warn lawsuits, each raising similar claims that Johnson’s talc based Baby Powder or Shower-to-Shower body powder caused the development of ovarian and uterine cancer. Additionally, another 10,000 claims are also currently being investigated nationwide. According to the International Journal of Gynecological Cancer, frequent talcum powder use on the female genital area increases the risk of ovarian cancer between 30–60%. The more often a woman uses it, the more likely she will experience ovarian cancer.
