Ben Crump Advocates for Cancer Diagnosis Victims of L. Organic® Brand Organic Tampons
Those who’ve suffered a cancer diagnosis allegedly caused by the titanium dioxide used in L. Organic® brand organic tampons now have the opportunity to seek justice and possible compensation.
Ben Crump Law is offering a free, confidential case evaluation to victims of cancer reportedly caused by high levels of titanium dioxide present in L. Organic® brand organic tampons.
What is titanium dioxide?
Titanium dioxide—also known as TiO2—is a common white coloring agent found in a variety of products, including:
- Paint; and many more.
The International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified titanium dioxide as “possibly carcinogenic to humans.”
Studies have shown that prolonged exposure to titanium dioxide can lead to lung tumors in rats.
Additionally, another study has found that exposure to nanoparticles of titanium dioxide can lead to a decrease in embryo development in the ovaries of mice, ultimately resulting in decreased fertility.
Furthermore, the Environmental Working Group has claimed that titanium dioxide can also cause damage to DNA.
L. Organic® Brand Organic Tampons & TiO2 Connection
Multiple women have filed lawsuits against organic tampon maker L. Organic® for their purportedly misleading “100% Organic” marketing strategy.
L. Organic®is also being eyed for allegedly causing reproductive harm through the use of titanium dioxide, an inorganic compound that has been linked to cancer.
One of the women involved in the lawsuit reported using L. Organic® tampons for a few years but began to experience weeks-long periods.
Her gynecologist diagnosed her with ovarian cysts, which were causing the excessive bleeding—she claimed that the tampons caused her ovarian cysts and prolonged bleeding.
Additionally, several other women who used L. Organic® brand organic tampons have allegedly been diagnosed with reproductive issues, contributing to their involvement in the lawsuit.
Company Profits Over Consumer Health & Safety?
Despite promises from companies like Mars, Inc.® and P&G® (who owns L. Organic®) to phase out artificial color agents by 2021, many of these companies continue to use titanium dioxide in food, makeup, tampons, and numerous other consumer items.
The science surrounding titanium dioxide has led to concerns about its potential to cause cancer, yet these companies continue to prioritize profits over the health and safety of consumers.
