The Peace of God to all that belong to the Light,
Dear Readers,

We have grown along many generations listening in the radio or in the TV or in the internet the so suggestive propaganda of different talcum companies that claim to have the ultimate remedy to cut the bad odor of transpiration on feet and make them feel fresh and rested even after hours of being standing up or walking.

One of the most emblematic manufacturers of Talcum powder in the world has be sued and found responsible of certain kind of Cancer cases for some ingredient of their product.

We are talking about the so famous Johnson & Johnson Talcum powder. Please check this information since apparently it is not an isolated incident but something that has old story behind, just in Missouri it seems that around 1000 suspicious cases have been reported.

please check:

money.cnn.com...

www.usatoday.com...

www.nydailynews.com...


Carol Goodrich, a Johnson & Johnson spokeswoman, said the company stands by the talc used in all “global products” and they are “evaluating” their legal options. “The recent U.S. verdict goes against decades of sound science proving the safety of talc as a cosmetic ingredient in multiple products, and while we sympathize with the family of the plaintiff, we strongly disagree with the outcome,” Goodrich said in a statement.


Johnson & Johnson was forced to pay a compensation of about 72million dollars just for this death. The $72 million payout represents $10 million in actual damages and $62 million in punitive damages. Johnson & Johnson is considering an appeal.

The ruling is the first payout of its kind by Johnson & Johnson, though a federal jury in South Dakota found in 2013 that the company’s powder was linked to ovarian cancer.

Jackie Fox died of ovarian cancer in 2015, aged 62, two years after being diagnosed with the illness. Her family said she used Johnson & Johnson's talcum powder for nearly 50 years, and claimed her death was a direct result.

The family argued the company knew about the possible risks of using products containing talc, but failed to warn consumers about them.

The case is part of a wider lawsuit brought by nearly 50 women against Johnson & Johnson.

The thread is obviously open to the free discussion provided that you remain in topic and reply under the rules of decorum in the communication.

Thanks,

The Angel of Lightness

For fun, go look up 'talcum powder granuloma' and 'talcosis'. They've known this stuff is tumor inducing for years.

I am pretty sure it contains aluminum, as well. Aluminum is also a potential carcinogen.

Oh boy. Something else that causes cancer.

Johnson and Johnson introduces Talcum powder in 1883. It contained Asbestos until the 1970's. It's been around for a long time. Apparently in the 1980's evidence came to light that Talcum powder could be a carcinogen. However, J&J did not warn its customers of that risk.
Source.

It seems to me that the cancer issue arises when people overuse the product, especially when they inhale the dust.

The woman who was the subject of the lawsuit died from its use after using it daily for 35 years. I've known people who have smoked for more than 35 years without getting cancer. And it's quite clear that smoking causes a variety of different types of cancer.

And the jury award of $72 Million Dollars is ludicrous.

I'm not sure that I buy all of this cancer nonsense. It seems to me that products that have been used for decades without incident are suddenly being determined to be carcinogens.

Please excuse my rant. I just get tired of these ridiculous amounts of money awarded in lawsuits. And the "discovery" of yet another carcinogenic product.

After reading this earlier today,my first thought was the wee ones. Right from birth we powder little bums and continue to do so till potty training. What damage to their young immune systems have we done?

It seems the peace of god has not delivered you critical thinking.

There is a difference between applying talcum powder to your feet and applying it to your vagina...

Talcum powder and cancer

Let me clear, The talcum was used by the women on her skin, no body has used inside her reproductive organs, and the area close to the genitals is never mentioned in the package of that talcum as a definitive NO for its use.

The manufacturer know, as you and any other person, that talcum traditionally is not used only on feet, but in many intimate areas of the body that experience great transpiration, if there is anything on it that make it dangerous on such a use must be warned in the bottles.

A lot of mothers use that talcum on the skin of babies, all around the body, they have the right to be informed of the risk they are assuming.

thanks,

Let me be clear: your title mentioned bad feet smell and not to use *insert brand x here* talcum powder.
I would suggest that it is fine to use on your feet, but to wash your hands afterwards.

Let's label dihydrogen monoxide properly too, as we can be sure that people are using it innapropriately...

Even commercials promote the use of Talcum in personal care related with controlling transpiration in other areas different than feet, and many people trust on that information.

The own manufacturers of Talcum also advertise it to be used in baby care, since it is believed protect the skin of babies especially in the genital area.

www.johnsonsbaby.com...

www.safetyandcarecommitment.com...

So the Manufacturers are the ones that are promoting these other alternative uses of Talcum by the people.

Now, another member replied saying that it is likely that in the talcum composition can be Alumina, and possibly also Titanium, two substances that we know right now by sure has powerful carcinogenic action.

Pls check:

Dioxide of Titanium linked with breast cancer

I'm not disputing the obvious health issues of this product, but I am questioning the relevance of your thread title...

not a strong selling-point. difficult to make a catchy slogan for that.

I prefer Gold Bond medicated powder for my sweaty areas. I like the minty fresh feeling it gives me. If it takes a few months off my life, I suppose that's a decent trade off. Nobody likes having a swampy bottom. Monkey butt is the worst!

My daughter just turned 22, and I knew not to use talcum powder on her when she was a baby. I used cornstarch instead. I think I was more worried about breathing in the talc though.

People tend to blindly trust manufacturers to never sell anything harmful. Just a little research goes a long way.

At the risk of using common sense, this was a court case and not a medical study.
