Talcum powder cases include clients who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer or fallopian tube cancer in the last two years of use of talcum powder. Mesothelioma has also been linked to Talcum powder use.
While Talcum powder is advertised as safe, today, the American Cancer Society lists talcum powder as a risk factor for ovarian cancer. There is also a growing opinion that talc can become contaminated with asbestos- a known carcinogen.
Risk factors have been suspected as far back as 1982, when a study revealed the first link to genital use of talcum powder to ovarian cancer and multiple studies have followed.
Products that contain talcum powder include:
Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder

Nivea Pure Talc
