There is mounting scientific evidence that long-term use of talcum powder for personal hygiene increases the risk of ovarian cancer. Talcum powder may cause cancer if it enters the ovaries after being applied to the genital area.
How does talcum powder cause ovarian cancer?
Although manufacturers of talc products such as baby powder have known for decades of the link between talcum powder and cancer, these companies chose not to warn women of the risk of cancer from their products. In recent jury trials which resulted in multi-million dollar verdicts, Johnson & Johnson has been found liable for this failure to warn of the dangers of its product. More information on the connection between talc and cancer can be found at the website for the International Society for Research on Cancer, www.iarc.fr.
