Thursday, June 6, 2019 - Asbestos.com is dedicated to providing people with the most accurate and up-to-date information on the various diseases that are caused by breathing or otherwise ingesting asbestos. It is safe to assume that the organization is highly interested in the outcomes of the talcum powder asbestos cancer trials that have been decided recently as well as the thousands of trials going forward. The site reports that a New York jury recently awarded a woman, Donna Olson, $325 million dollars in compensatory and punitive damages for developing mesothelioma as a result of a lifetime of baby powder use. Olson was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2016 was forced to have a lung removed and was too sick to attend the trial. According to Asbestos.com "Robert Olson, her husband, testified at the trial, saying she regularly used Johnson & Johnsonís iconic baby powder. We are extremely grateful for the dedication of the jury, and hope that our case raises awareness about asbestos in talc," the Olsons said in a statement released to the media." National Talcum powder asbestos cancer lawyers will provide a free case review to persons who were diagnosed with ovarian cancer and have a history of talcum powder use for perineal hygiene.
Previously 22 women were awarded a total of $4.69 billion or around the same amount each for developing ovarian cancer from using Johnson's Baby powder on a regular basis for the purpose of feminine hygiene. According to Asbestos.com, "In both cases, juries found the health care company failed to warn consumers that its talc products raised the risk of cancer." In addition, it has been demonstrated that Johnson & Johnson have fought the FDA for decades and themselves kept from using a more sensitive method of testing for asbestos.
The website is clear in condemning talc as a being laced with asbestos stating that "various talc products are naturally contaminated with asbestos fibers, which put consumers and industrial workers at risk for exposure." The organization points out that people are equally as likely to come into contact with asbestos at home as they are at work or if they were in the military. The FDA recently found asbestos in two cosmetic products it tested.
