Talcum Powder News & Info

Dangers in the Medicine Cabinet

For most of us, talcum powder is a household product as ubiquitous as a toothbrush or coffee pot. And why wouldn’t we believe it to be anything more than a hygiene tool? Many people use baby powder from the day they are born, and continue to do so for the rest of their lives. For some, however, talcum powder is the source of illness, cancer and even death. But you’d never know it, given the labeling – or lack thereof – from companies like Johnson & Johnson.

Yet study after study has found the same results: talcum powder, when used on the female genitalia, can cause ovarian cancer. In spite of these findings, companies refused to include warnings of the risks on their talcum powder products.

Now, more than 1,000 other women have filed lawsuits.
