It's truly #disgusting that Johnson & Johnson was told about #studies in the 1970s that showed the #talc #cancer relationship. You can't help but look at the current #court proceedings and #arguments made by J&J and not think back to how #BigTobacco tried to #convince the public that their products were anything but #CancerCausing. If Johnson & Johnson has so much #proof that #talc doesn't cause #OvarianCancer, why have three separate #juries decided they were in the wrong? #TalcumPowderLawsuit #attorney #lawsuit #beatcancer #cancersucks

Fergus County woman alleges talc caused cancer
A Fergus County woman has filed a lawsuit against Three Forks talcum producer Imerys Talc, claiming the company, along with consumer goods giant Johnson & Johnson, failed to warn her about the dangers of the mineral, which allegedly played a role in the woman developing ovarian cancer.
The suit, filed last week in Gallatin County District Court , alleges that industry members have known about the carcinogenic nature of talc for more than 40 years and have neglected to inform consumers.
According to the suit: Imerys Talc, a French company that owns and operates two plants in the Three Forks area, produces talc used in Johnson & Johnson baby powder.
Fergus County resident Holly Jensen , 62, was first exposed to the powder as a child, and continued using it for feminine hygiene purposes for much of her adult life.
The suit cites “multiple epidemiologic studies” that it says demonstrate the association between talc and ovarian cancer, including a 1993 United States National Toxicology Program study that found talc to be carcinogenic whether or not it contained asbestos.
In general, research on the relationship between talc and cancer has been inconclusive.
