About Talcum Powder
For decades, talcum powder has been widely used to help keep skin dry and to prevent irritation and rashes. In recent years, it has become customary for women to dust their private parts, underwear and sanitary napkins with talcum powder, a practice associated with cleanliness and freshness. The substance has also been used with diaphragms for birth control and was once found in certain brands of condoms. However, when used on or near the genitals, particles can travel into the ovaries and remain there for years, causing inflammation and leading to the growth of cancer cells.
Talcum Powder & Ovarian Cancer
The known link between J&J’s products containing talcum powder and ovarian cancer is not new. It dates back to the early 1970s when studies of ovarian cancer patients showed particles of talc in their ovarian tissue. In fact, a study by a Harvard doctor estimates that talc in hygiene products may be a contributing factor in the development of ovarian cancer in as many as 10,000 women each year.
According to a recent study published by the Cancer Prevention Research journal, the use of talcum powder-based products on a woman’s genitals increases the risk of developing ovarian cancer in a woman’s lifetime. This is because the particles that make up talcum powder are extremely fine. When directly applied to a woman’s genital area on a habitual basis, the particles may travel into the vagina, through the fallopian tubes and settle in the ovaries. The ovaries may then become hindered by the presence of talcum powder particles, resulting in an irritation that allows cancer cells to form, grow and spread. In fact, scientists have actually discovered talc minerals inside the cancerous tumors removed from victim’s bodies.
Ovarian cancer is one of the most deadly forms of cancer. This is largely due to the fact that symptoms are often vague and diagnosis is missed until the cancer has progressed to an advanced stage and/or spread into other areas of the body such as the abdomen and pelvic region.
