LADIES If You Do Not Stop Using This Powder, You Will Soon Get Ovarian Cancer

 HEALTHY TIPS

Its been a routine for women to dust their private parts, underwear and sanitary napkins with talcum powder. It is a practice associated with cleanliness and freshness.

Some people may sprinkle on powder after showering and never think much of it. But recent court cases have shined a spotlight on the possible link between women’s regular use of talcum powder on their genitals and an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer.

Talcum powder is made from talc, a mineral made up mainly of the elements magnesium, silicon, and oxygen.

As a powder, it absorbs moisture well and helps cut down on friction, making it useful for keeping skin dry and helping to prevent rashes.
It is widely used in cosmetic products such as baby powder and adult body and facial powders, as well as in a number of other consumer products.

It has been suggested that talcum powder might cause cancer in the ovaries if the powder particles (applied to the genital area or on sanitary napkins, diaphragms, or condoms) were to travel through the vagina, uterus, and fallopian tubes to the ovary.

For any individual woman, if there is an increased risk.

Talcum powder is made from talc, a mineral made up mainly of the elements magnesium, silicon, and oxygen.

In its natural form, some talc contains asbestos, a substance known to cause cancers in and around the lungs when inhaled (see Asbestos). All talcum products used in homes in the United States have been asbestos-free since the 1970s.

Most concerns about a possible link between talcum powder and cancer have been focused on:

  • Whether people who have long-term exposure to natural talc fibers at work, such as talc miners, are at higher risk of lung cancer from breathing them in.
  • Whether women who apply talcum powder regularly in the genital area have an increased risk of ovarian cancer.

Can I reduce my exposure to talcum powder?

It is not clear if consumer products containing talcum powder increase cancer risk. Studies of personal use of talcum powder have had mixed results, although there is some suggestion of a possible increase in ovarian cancer risk. There is very little evidence at this time that any other forms of cancer are linked with consumer use of talcum powder.

Until more information is available, people concerned about using talcum powder may want to avoid or limit their use of consumer products that contain it.
