What are the connections between the use of talcum powder and the dangers of ovarian cancer?
There are more than 1,200 cases similar to this still pending. Agencies are also calling for makers of talcum powder to add a warning on their labels informing consumers about the potential risks associated with the use of the product.
The American Cancer Society brought up concerns regarding the potential dangers of talcum powder in 1999 and still, the warning has not been included on the label. This is a direct violation of the manufacturer’s duty to provide a safe product.
