New study reveals talcum powder may cause mesothelioma

On Behalf of | Oct 23, 2019 | Mesothelioma |

Kentucky residents may be interested in learning about a new case study that offers some of the most powerful proof that being exposed to talcum powder that contains asbestos can cause mesothelioma. Besides the fact that this is an important discovery, it could also provide just the evidence that is needed by plaintiffs who have brought claims against companies that produce talcum powder and have alleged that it causes cancer.

Asbestos is a human carcinogen. It occurs naturally in fibrous materials. It is used in a variety of products, including insulation, building supplies and the talc that is used to make talcum powder. While there have been claims that the talc that is used for talcum powder does not contain detectable levels of asbestos, there is still concern because of the lack of regulation in the cosmetic industry.

This study may be just what is needed to improve regulations in the cosmetic industry and help those who have been diagnosed with cancer to get the compensation they deserve. When it comes to cancer and other forms of disease, it can be very difficult to prove exactly what caused it. However, if credible researchers and physicians can prove that individual cases of cancer have been caused by talcum powder that contains asbestos, it could prove very powerful in the plaintiff’s cases.

Courts have been skeptical to a certain degree as to case studies that prove how a disease came about. However, presenting solid evidence can help an individual’s case. People who have been exposed to products containing asbestos may wish to speak with an attorney. A lawyer may be able to give advice on the steps that need to be taken to prove that their clients were exposed to a certain disease and even represent them in court if it is necessary.
