Products marketed to children show mesothelioma concerns

Talcum powder, makeup and crayons are all a right of passage for many Georgia girls. These products are often an everyday part of one's life. As such, the parent who purchases the product and the individual who uses the product assumes that they are safe; they do not assume that the product could be a danger to the child and possibly cause mesothelioma later on.

Unfortunately, this may not be the case. In yet another lawsuit, Johnson & Johnson is having to answer to the possibility of asbestos contaminating its talcum powder products. These products include powders used for babies as well as after the shower for teens and adults. The company has faced similar lawsuits in recent history.

In addition to the possibility of asbestos being found in powder products, traces have also been found in makeup and crayons. The makeup associated with these findings have been marketed to younger girls, thus causing even greater concern. In addition, crayons are typically utilized by smaller children and sometimes teenagers. This is yet another area of concern for Georgia parents.

While the possibility of asbestos contamination may be low, even the smallest trace included in the product can be cause for concern. If the asbestos is inhaled and enters the body's tissue, the end result can be mesothelioma. If one believes that a product has led to such a diagnosis, it will be important to follow the advice of one's doctor. The next step may then be to review available legal options.
