According to numerous studies, Talcum powder has been linked to a 20% to 30% increase in the
chance of developing ovarian cancer. The link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer has
historically been known.
However, the manufacturers of this product have not warned consumers about the very serious
side effects of talcum powder. This omission led to recent litigation in these Johnson and
Johnson cases, which produced some astounding outcomes.
How Talcum Powder causes Ovarian Cancer:
Specks of talcum can enter the ovaries from the fallopian tubes as women apply talcum powder
products near their genital area. Transmigration is the term for this. These harmful talc
fragments can clog a woman's ovaries for many years.
According to the International Journal of Gynecological Cancer - Talc Ovarian Cancer Exposure,
talc use elevated the risk of ovarian cancer by 30–60%. The Attributable Risk was 29%, meaning
that stopping the usage of talc could save at least 25 percent of women from developing ovarian
cancer. Women exposed to more applications have a higher risk, according to research that took
frequency and length of exposure into account.
