Johnson & Johnson told to pay $72 million in talcum powder cancer case
Johnson & Johnson has been ordered to pay damages to the family of a woman who died of cancer she said was caused by the company's talcum powder. Lawyers for the family say a jury in St Louis, Missouri, awarded $72 million in damages. Jackie Fox died of ovarian cancer in 2015, aged 62, two years after being diagnosed with the illness. Her family said she used Johnson & Johnson's talcum powder for nearly 50 years, and claimed her death was a direct result.
