Open-Pit Asbestos Mines Blasted Asbestos Into the Air Polluting Entire Surrounding Neighborhoods

It would have been a miracle if nearby talc mines escaped asbestos contamination

Monday, November 11, 2019 - Open-pit talc mines are part of the neighborhoods that include businesses and homes that have been exposed to airborne asbestos contamination. Airborne asbestos from mining operations is proven to have contaminated entire neighborhoods surrounding asbestos mines in the United States and throughout the world. Populations surrounding asbestos mines developed mesothelioma, a rare and deadly form of lung cancer at an alarming rate arousing concerns about the airborne contaminate. Asbestos mining operations are fully to blame for the contamination which was thought to be harmless up until the early 1970s. According to, Imerys Inc., supplier of talc to Johnson & Johnson to make Johnson's Baby Powder, is the world's leader in talc mining producing 15% of the world's supply. Like asbestos mining, Imreys' talc mining is done in open-pit mines, exposing the product to airborne contaminates. It would have been a miracle if talc mines escaped asbestos contamination. Once contaminated, asbestos cannot be removed from talc. No amount of asbestos is considered safe for one's health.

According to "Asbestos deposits are found underground, and the ore is brought to the surface for processing using conventional mining practices. Chrysotile asbestos is usually found near the surface and can be accessed with an open-pit mine." Chrysolite makes up about one-third of the world's total supply and comes from vast, open-pit mines. Chrysotile asbestos is mined by drilling, blasting and then digging creating vast clouds of asbestos dust that was free to travel in every direction based on the prevailing winds. sums up talc's asbestos exposure. "talc, the softest known mineral, is dug from the ground, where it can keep bad company. Talc is sometimes interlaced with asbestos, which can cause fatal diseases in those who inhale its microscopic, lung-scarring fibers."

The US Food and Drug Administration has recently tested and found asbestos in samples of talc taken from bottles of Johnson's Baby Powder. "Internal records reviewed by FairWarning show that officials of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration have long been concerned about potential asbestos contamination of cosmetic talc, but have left it to the industry to monitor itself." Johnson & Johnson responded to the FDA's Johnson's Baby Powder asbestos findings by voluntarily recalling 33,000, 22 oz. bottles of Johnson's Baby Powder. Retailers Walmart, CVS, and Rite Aid immediately removed bottles of this lot from their shelves.

There are currently over 13,000 lawsuits pending against Johnson & Johnson by plaintiffs with ovarian cancer and mesothelioma alleging that Johnson's Baby Powder talc or the asbestos therein caused their illnesses. Plaintiffs have won multi-million dollar jury awards in courts in the United States. Defense attorneys for Johnson & Johnson investigate the residential and work histories of Plaintiffs with mesothelioma who claim Johnson's Baby Powder caused their illness.
