Jury Awards $72 Million to Victim of Cancer Caused by Talcum Powder

Johnson & Johnson, the manufacturer of Johnson's Baby Powder and Shower to Shower, was ordered to pay the award after the victim's family presented evidence at trial showing that, while the corporation was aware of a cancer risk, it did nothing to warn the public of the possible link between cancer and talc use.
