US talc cancer case 美国滑石粉致癌案

US talc cancer case 美国滑石粉致癌案
BBC News–Pharmaceutical firm Johnson & Johnson (J&J) has been ordered by a US court to pay more than $110m to a woman who says she developed ovarian cancer after using its talcum powder. Lois Slemp, 62, from Virginia, Missouri said she developed the cancer after four decades of using talc products. 
 
Prosecutors argued the company did not adequately warn about the cancer risks associated with the items. Experts say links with ovarian cancer are unproven. J&J says it will appeal. 
 
Ms Slemp is currently undergoing chemotherapy after her ovarian cancer initially diagnosed in 2012 returned and spread to her liver. She said the products she used included J&J's Baby Powder and Shower to Shower Powder. 
 
The verdict in a St Louis state court is the largest so far to arise out of about 2,400 lawsuits against J&J over its talc-based products. "Once again we've shown that these companies ignored the scientific evidence and continue to deny their responsibilities to the women of America," said Ted Meadows, a lawyer for Ms Slemp. 
 
There have been concerns for years that using talcum powder, particularly on the genitals, may increase the risk of ovarian cancer. But the evidence is not conclusive. The International Agency for Research on Cancer classifies talc used on the genitals as "possibly carcinogenic" because of the mixed evidence. 
 
The mineral talc in its natural form does contain asbestos and does cause cancer, however, asbestos-free talc has been used in baby powder and other cosmetics since the 1970s. But the studies on asbestos-free talc give contradictory results. 
 
It has been linked to a cancer risk in some studies, but there are concerns that the research may be biased as they often rely on people remembering how much talc they used years ago. Other studies have argued there is no link at all and there is no link between talc in contraceptives such as diaphragms and condoms (which would be close to the ovaries) and cancer. Also there does not seem to be a "dose-response" for talc, unlike with known carcinogens like tobacco where the more you smoke, the greater the risk of lung cancer.
