Man Wins $37m From Johnson & Johnson After Jury Backs His Claim Baby Powder Gave Him Cance


A man who claims baby powder gave him cancer has been awarded $30 million in damages.

Stephen Lanzo, 46, sued Johnson & Johnson and one of its suppliers after Stephen was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2016 that he says was caused by the talcum powder products he's used for more than 30 years.

The suit brought by Lanzo and his wife Kendra claims that the company knew the products were contaminated with carcinogenic asbestos but did nothing to warn the public.

A jury awarded $30 million to the banker from Verona, New Jersey, and $7 million to his wife.

Thousands of other lawsuits claiming a link between cancer and talcum powder products have been filed against Johnson & Johnson and other companies in the US.
