Every horror story leaves us with a cautionary tale, and this one is no different.

Based on over three hundred real court cases, “Jane’s Dust: A Tale of Talc, Deceit, and Death” (published by Archway Publishing) by Ronald E. Gordon, Ph.D., and Joel Brokaw is the fictionalized account of one woman’s battle with ovarian cancer and her lawsuit over the deadly effects of talcum powder.

Jane is shocked when she ends up with ovarian cancer. But that is only the start. She endures doctor visits, surgeries, chemotherapy, recovered only to develop a life ending mesothelioma and eventually a lawsuit against the makers of talcum powder. Jane learns the hard way about big business and the lies they use to cover up what they know. Nothing is exaggerated or embellished; this it is the reality faced by thousands of people, some of whom may be family, friends, or neighbors.

“Every horror story leaves us with a cautionary tale, and this one is no different,” Gordon says. “I want these people that have used cosmetic talcum powder to be monitored medically. Also, hope that all will stop using this product realizing that it is not 100% safe.”

“Jane’s Dust” is available for purchase online at the Archway link above, from Barnes & Noble and on Amazon at: https://www.amazon.com/Janes-Dust-Tale-Deceit-Death/dp/1665712287.
