    Talcum powder has been used for decades as a personal hygeine product for women and babies, however, recent studies have indicated a link between talcum powder use and ovarian cancer in women. In June 2013, Cancer Prevention Research published a study that suggested women who use talcum powder had a 20-30% greater chance of developing ovarian cancer than woman who did not use the product.

  • Can I sue if AndroGel caused a heart attack?

    The testosterone supplement AndroGel has been known to cause serious health conditions in some men. If you have suffered a heart attack as a result of taking this drug, you may be entitled to compensation against the drug company. Several medical studies have suggested that many testosterone supplements, such as AndroGel, can incrase the risk of serious medical conditions such as heart attack, stroke, blood clot formation, and deep vein thrombosis.

    Lawsuits against AndroGel allege that the manufacturer did not disclose many of the serious health risks to the public. Therefore, the drug was initially considered by many to be a safe and effective way to increase muscle strength, sex drive, and slow the effects of aging. It is strongly believed that the testosterone replacement therapy industry did not properly test their products and may have been aware of the adverse effects of the medications prior to releasing them to the public. Thousands of lawsuits have been filed against AndroGel. If you have expereienced any of the life-threatening complications associated with testosterone drugs, you may be able to join a class action lawsuit or file your own.

    When this does not happen, or hotels are aware of a bed bug infestation yet fail to warn its guests, it does give rise to a lawsuit and the injured party may be able to file a claim against the negligent Michigan hotel.
