Talc on Trial
Kate Snow reports on the heated debate over talc, the main ingredient in baby powder, which some believe can increase the risk of ovarian cancer. In all, juries have ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay more than $300 million in damages while the company, which is appealing, insists that talc is safe and that the science proves their case. UPDATE: October, 2017 Since our broadcast, two of the verdicts against Johnson & Johnson—one in California and another in Missouri—have been overturned. Plaintiffs’ attorneys are appealing those decisions.
