    A woman was awarded $29 million by a California jury after she said she got cancer from asbestos in Johnson & Johnson's talcum-powder-based products.

    Reuters reported that a California jury came to a verdict and awarded $29 million to a woman who said asbestos in Johnson & Johnson's talcum-powder-based products caused her cancer.

    Johnson & Johnson denied that its talc causes cancer, and said it would appeal, according to Reuters.

    The woman said she used the Johnson & Johnson's baby powder in the 1960's and 1970's and was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2017.
