California Just Took a Step Forward in the Fight Against Roundup

By Louisville Personal Injury Lawyer on May 11, 2017

roundupMonsanto’s weed-killing pesticide Roundup is used widely in the United States’ agricultural community. The company has widely fought claims that Roundup is linked to many forms of cancer. Despite reporting from The World Health Organization, Monsanto has been able to keep Roundup’s link to cancer off official records and its product’s listing. That is, until now.

According to The Center for Biodiversity, California has officially recognized glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, as a “probable” human carcinogen. This comes just after news that The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) failed to link glyphosate to cancer, even when it had the information to do so.

Does Talcum Powder Cause Cancer?

By Louisville Personal Injury Lawyer on February 22, 2017

Talcum powder has been a commonly used household product for centuries, as it is beneficial in drying up moisture, reducing friction, and preventing rashes. In addition, it was frequently marketed as an effective way to mask feminine odors. Unfortunately, women that have habitually used talcum powder in this manner may have unknowingly increased their risk for developing ovarian cancer.

Why Talcum Powder Has Been Linked to Cancer

A significant number of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer have talc particles that were discovered in their ovaries. This occurs when talcum powder is applied directly to the genitals or anywhere in the vicinity, allowing it to enter the body through the vagina and move through the fallopian tubes. Once inside the organs, the talc begins to build up in the ovarian tissue after repeated use and causes chronic inflammation. This is believed to be a contributing factor to the formation of cancer cells. Read the rest »
