How Talc Powder Leads To Serious Complications And Conditions, Including Ovarian and Fallopian Tube Cancers
Talcum powder is made from talc which is a mineral made up mainly of the three elements magnesium, silicon, and oxygen.
In its powder form, it helps to absorb moisture and cut down on friction–which means that it’s useful for keeping skin dry and preventing rashes.
In its natural form, some talc contains asbestos, a substance widely known to cause cancers such as ovarian tube cancer and fallopian tube cancer.
It’s widely used in cosmetic products such as:
- Baby powder
- Adult body powder
- Adult facial powder
- A variety of other consumer beauty products
- A variety of other consumer health products
One theory is that when talcum powder is used for feminine hygiene, talc particles can travel through the vagina, uterus and fallopian tubes to the ovaries.
It can take years to dissolve, and research shows that it can cause the inflammation that creates conditions that increase the likelihood of cancer growth, and long-term inflammation can eventually lead to the formation of cancerous tumors in the ovaries and fallopian tubes.
The primary manufacturers of talc-based powders include:
- Johnson & Johnson
- Colgate-Palmolive Company
- Imerys Talc Supplier
These talc manufacturers have failed to warn the public of the risk of talc on the human body, leading to a variety of lawsuits.
Reports And Studies Of Talc Causing Ovarian and Fallopian Tube Cancers Are On The Rise
Most concerns about a possible link between talcum powder and cancer have been focused on whether women who apply talcum powder regularly in the genital area have an increased risk of ovarian and fallopian tube cancers.
Studies suggest talcum powder applied directly to the genital area or on sanitary napkins, diaphragms or condoms may be cancer-causing to the ovaries.
The American Cancer Society lists talcum powder as a primary risk factor for ovarian cancer, which is by far the deadliest cancer of the female reproductive system.
What’s more, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have revealed that it’s possible that talc may trigger an inflammatory response that in some exposed women may progress to ovarian cancer or fallopian tube cancer.
Recent studies have estimated that almost 40% of women are said to regularly use talcum powder–some 2 out of 5 women–which can be found in many:
- Baby powders;
- Foot powders;
- Medicated powders;
- Cosmetics; and,
- Intimate hygiene products.
The International Agency for Research on Cancer–part of the World Health Organization (WHO)--classifies genital use of talc-based body powder as possibly carcinogenic (cancer-causing) to humans.
We believe that victims of ovarian and fallopian tube cancers and their families should be able to address these misleading manufacturers that were the alleged source of dangerous talc and talcum powders and get the compensation and justice they deserve.
