For years, women have used various talcum powder based products for personal
hygiene. Unfortunately, recent reports and studies now show that many
talc-based products are causing deadly forms of ovarian cancer. In fact,
statistics show that thousands of women are affected annually.
Research determines that the first link between talcum powder and ovarian
cancer occurred in 1971 and dealt greatly with Johnson & Johnson’s
products. Various studies prove that the talc particles within the Johnson
& Johnson products were detected in ovarian tissues of various women.
However, at that time, companies producing talc-based products, including
Johnson & Johnson, were able to fight against such studies. Consequently,
many of these products continued to be available to consumers.

What Harmful Constituents Are Attributed to Causing Ovarian Cancer?
Talcum usually takes the form of a powder-like substance and is prepared
using the following ingredients:
In most cases, individuals use these talc to reduce friction and to absorb
any moisture in order to prevent rashes and maintain dry skin. However,
when these products are used on genital areas, the talc particles can
move inside the body and become trapped in women’s ovaries. When
the talc particles become trapped in the ovaries, the area can become
inflamed, causing cancer cells to grow.
Cancer Prevention Research Journal states that women who apply talc-based product near or on the genitals
increase their chances of developing ovarian cancer by 41%. Still, these
dangerous products remain on the shelves of stores everywhere and do not
provide adequate warnings.
