While Beasley told Al.com that his experts found a link between ovarian cancer and talc powder, findings on the cancer link have been mixed, according to the American Cancer Society. From the American Cancer Society:Many studies in women have looked at the possible link between talcum powder and cancer of the ovary. Findings have been mixed, with some studies reporting a slightly increased risk and some reporting no increase. Many case-control studies have found a small increase in risk. But these types of studies can be biased because they often rely on a person's memory of talc use many years earlier. Two prospective cohort studies, which would not have the same type of potential bias, have not found an increased risk.
Still, some people are freaking out about their own use of Johnson & Johnson's baby powder."Johnson and Johnson is a company I trusted for years with several products I used on my daughter. Before I 'knew better,'" consumer Michelle Gillard wrote on Facebook.Amy L. O'Grady wrote: "This makes me sick when I read things like this! Such a 'well respected' huge company that should know better! This country doesn't care about its consumers."
Justin Trevail commented, "Just when you thought you can trust a company, it turns out you can't."
Many consumers are urging people to stop using Johnson & Johnson products, and some are sharing information about cosmetics companies such as Arbonne that say their products are free of chemicals or other potentially harmful substances.The plaintiff in the Missouri case, Jacqueline Fox, said she used Johnson & Johnson's baby powder and Shower to Shower - another powder product made by the company - for more than 35 years. She learned she had ovarian cancer three years ago, and she died last year at 62.
A Johnson & Johnson spokeswoman told Reuters: "We have no higher responsibility than the health and safety of consumers, and we are disappointed with the outcome of the trial. We sympathize with the plaintiff's family but firmly believe the safety of cosmetic talc is supported by decades of scientific evidence."
