Research has linked women’s regular use of talc-containing products like talcum powder, baby powder and body powder in their genital area to the development of ovarian cancer. As many as 2,200 cases of ovarian cancer diagnosed each year may have been caused by regular use of talcum powder.
Talc products used regularly in the genital area could increase the risk of ovarian cancer if the powder were to travel through the vagina, uterus and fallopian tubes to the ovaries. A jury recently found consumer health care products manufacturer Johnson & Johnson knew of the cancer risks associated with its talc products but failed to warn consumers.
