Using Johnson's Baby Powder Caused Me Cancer- Deborah Giannecchini


Deborah Giannecchini of Modesto, California, was
diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2012.
She accused talc makers Johnson & Johnson of "negligent
conduct" in making and marketing the product.
The woman's lawyer Jim Onder said: "We are pleased the
jury did the right thing.
"They once again reaffirmed the need for Johnson &
Johnson to warn the public of the ovarian cancer risk
associated with its product."
The case is the latest which has raised concerns about
the health ramifications of extended use of talcum
powder.
Some research has found no link or a weak one between
ovarian cancer and baby powder and the company has
insisted it is safe.
But other research has indicated that women who
regularly use talc on their genital area face up to a
40% higher risk of developing ovarian cancer.
Factors known to increase the risk include age, obesity,
oestrogen therapy after the menopause, not having
children and family history.
Talc is a soft mineral mined from deposits around the
world and is crushed into a white powder.
It has been widely used in cosmetics and other personal
care products to absorb moisture since at least 1894,
when Johnson & Johnson launched its baby powder.
The International Agency for Research on Cancer
classifies genital use of talc as "possibly carcinogenic".
After the verdict, Johnson & Johnson said in a statement:
"We will appeal today's verdict because we are guided by
the science, which supports the safety of Johnson's Baby
Powder."
Earlier this year, two other lawsuits in St. Louis ended in
jury verdicts worth a combined $127m (£104m).
But two others in New Jersey were thrown out by a judge
who said there wasn't reliable evidence that talc leads to
ovarian cancer.
About 2,000 women have filed similar law suits and
lawyers are reviewing thousands of other potential cases.
Johnson & Johnson has been targeted before by health
and consumer groups over ingredients in its products,
including Johnson's No More Tears baby shampoo.
