Asbestos in Cosmetic Talcum Powder May Cause You Cancer

On Behalf of | Jan 18, 2018 | Asbestos |

Talcum powder may cause you to contract cancer from exposure to asbestos.  Unfortunately, the cosmetic talc industry has been trying to conceal this hazard for decades despite being aware of the risks.    

While baby power and other talcum powder products have been commonly used for decades, a well kept secret is that many of these products contain various types of asbestos putting people at risk of suffering asbestos diseases, such as mesothelioma.

If you have talcum powder products in your home, you should strongly consider removing them and no longer using such products.  While the cosmetic talc industry disputes their products contain asbestos, evidence strongly demonstrates they are wrong.  Unfortunately, the consequences could be dire to many of the millions of people who have used talcum powder on their children, their loved ones and themselves.    

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma and used cosmetic talcum powder, contact Satterely & Kelley.  We may be able to help you.
