Talcum powder may cause cancer (must read)

This powder has been used by many for years together and have become a norm in the tropical areas to use talcum powder in the summers and humid seasons to avoid or reduce sweating and is commonly used to reduce rashes and diaper irritation in babies and infants 

You've probably used it, or had it sprinkled on you at some time in your life. It's processed from a soft mineral compound of magnesium silicate, and is called talcum powder or just talc. The main ingredient – Talc, can cause cancer.

Manufactured by Johnson & Johnson, and widely distributed by Osco and Walgreens.

Women have been persuaded by advertisements to dust themselves with talcum powder to mask alleged genital odors. Not surprisingly, the powder has become a symbol of freshness and cleanliness for over five decades.

Talc is known to cause cancer, and is found to have fibers similar to that found in the asbestos.

Several studies have been conducted to study the risk factor of talc in causing cancer.

When used in the genitalia areas, the talc has the ability to be absorbed by skin and move through the reproductive system and become embedded in the lining of the ovary. Causing the tissues in the lining to inflamate, which in turn proves to be a positive factor for cancer cells to grow.

Talc if by accident or due to environmental circumstances (for talc miners) proves to be a health risk for lungs and may cause respiratory diseases including cancer. There have been several cases for minors falling seriously sick and even dying to due accidental inhalation of the baby powder.

Talc apart from the very well known product – talcum powder is also used in in deodorants, chalk, crayons, textiles, soap, insulating materials, paints, asphalt filler, paper, and in food processing.

The president of the industry's Cosmetic Toiletry and Fragrance Association, Edward Kavanaugh, conceded in 2002 that talc is toxic and "can reach the human ovaries." Yet, inexplicably, talc manufacturers failed to warn women that the product could be dangerous to their health.

The potentially harmful effects of talc . . . in the ovary . . . should not be ignored!
