Recently, thousands of women aged between 30 and 70 years, who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer after using Johnson & Johnson talc-based products, have rushed to ensure a massive cash settlement for their condition. Knowingly, Johnson & Johnson has put millions of women out there at the risk of developing ovarian cancer with its Shower to Shower and Baby Powder product lines. The cash settlement that thousands of women demand will be aimed at covering the overall damage that the brand Johnson & Johnson is responsible for causing to these women. Victims of the deceitful fate by Johnson & Johnson are guided by a famous lawyer who has been successful in recovering millions of victims of similar cases.
The Study Revealing the Harmful Effects of Johnson & Johnson Product Lines
Several studies have been conducted by IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer) on the Johnson & Johnson talc-based product line. The reports of the studies have revealed that the talc contains asbestos –having immense potential to infuse the risk of developing cancer in humans. A recent study that was presented through the internal documents of the company revealed that Johnson & Johnson is well-aware of the overall health risks that are associated with using the talc on a daily basis. The company not only failed in warning its customers who had been using the talc for a long time, but they also intentionally made a decision to not interfere with the existing ingredients of the talc causing health problems. The company went on selling its product that was already defined to be potentially harmful to the human body.
Last year itself, Johnson & Johnson was asked to pay a whopping amount of $4.69 billion to as many as 22 women as well as their families. These women had claimed the presence of the harmful asbestos in the talcum powder range of products by the company. These products had led to the development of ovarian cancer in women. Currently, the company is facing over 9,000 plaintiffs in multiple cases that involve talc-based body powders.
