St. Louis, Missouri: Last Friday a trial began in St. Louis for the families of three women who contracted ovarian cancer after use of talcum powder baby powder products. Johnson & Johnson and other companies marketed baby powder products containing talcum powder, despite knowing that baby powder increased their customer’s risk of ovarian cancer.
