Millions of men and women use talcum powder everyday for routine hygiene, however, many women who have used talcum powder on their genitals may be putting themselves at an increased risk of developing Ovarian Cancer.
The Cancer Prevention Research Medical Journal published a report last year which observed 2,000 women who used talcum powder on the genital area and found that those women had a 20-30% higher risk of ovarian cancer. It is estimated that nearly 10,000 cases of ovarian cancer are caused by problems with talcum powder each year.
In October 2013, after a trial involving a 56 year old woman who developed ovarian cancer after using talcum powder for several decades, a South Dakota jury found there was sufficient evidence to link Johnson Shower-to-Shower body powder to ovarian cancer.
