A Missouri jury has ordered pharmaceutical and health giant Johnson & Johnson (J&J) to pay $72 million in damages to the family of a woman who died of ovarian cancer after using the company’s talc-based baby powder for decades. The jury found that J&J was aware of research linking talc to cancer, but deliberately chose to cover it up rather than warning consumers.

It is the first time a U.S. jury has awarded damages in a case claiming health effects of using talc.

“This case clearly was a bellwether and clearly the jury has seen the evidence and found it compelling,” said law professor Nora Freeman Engstrom of Stanford University. “The jury was distressed by the company’s conduct.”
