Talcum Powder Linked To Ovarian Cancer

Talcum Powder Linked To Ovarian Cancer

 This post is totally shocking.  Who would have believed that the talcum powder used on baby girls could wreck such havoc.  It sure pays to look for the alternative!


  • More than 20 studies have linked the use of talcum powder around the genital area to ovarian cancer in women. Cornstarch is a safe substitute that can do the job of absorbing moisture
  • In February 2016, a jury found Johnson & Johnson’s talcum powder contributed to a 62-year old woman’s ovarian cancer, awarding her $72 million in damages
  • In May 2016, another woman was awarded $55 million in damages after talc embedded in her ovaries was found to have contributed to her cancer
