What Are the Dangers Associated with Talcum Powder Use?

Research shows that women who regularly use talcum powder on their genitals may have an increased risk for developing ovarian cancer. Worse, companies like Johnson & Johnson likely knew of these risks decades ago, but continued to market talc products specifically for feminine hygiene purposes.

This is especially dangerous as ovarian cancer is often difficult to detect in its early stages. As a result, many women do not receive a diagnosis until the cancer is at an advanced stage.
