Talcum Powder and Ovarian Cancer

Los Angeles, CA—Thousands of lawsuits have been filed by women nationwide against the companies responsible for producing talcum powder, more commonly known as baby powder. The California employment class action attorneys at Marlin & Saltzman are currently investigating the causal link between prolonged talcum powder use and ovarian cancer. As of November 2016, there have been three substantial multi-million dollar verdicts in favor of women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer due to sustained baby powder use.

“Studies have shown that [the] companies have been aware of the risk of prolonged exposure to talcum powder since the 1970s,” said Marlin & Saltzman partner, Alan Lazar. “There have been over twenty studies where scientists have connected talc powder and ovarian cancer.”

The International Agency for Research on Cancer classifies talc use in the genital area as “possibly carcinogenic.”* Additionally, talcum powder is yet to be fully reviewed by The National Toxicology Program, which consists of parts of several different government agencies.

The attorneys of Marlin & Saltzman are looking for women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer as a result of continued talcum powder use. If you or a loved one regularly used talc products (five+ years) and have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, you may be entitled to compensation.

I have been working with Marlin & Saltzman on my case for quite some time, and have worked closely with Jody Rosen.  She has always kept me informed on where we are on all things and what I need to do or what to expect.  A great deal of pressure has been taken off of my hands and handled by a firm that, in my opinion, has gone above and beyond taking good care of their clients!!!  I want to thank Marlin & Saltzman for all that they have helped me with.  I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this firm to anyone who is in need of legal representation. Thanks again Marlin & Saltzman, and may 2017 be a Happy New Year to all!
