  • The first study linking talcum powder and ovarian cancer was published in the 1970s, when researches who examined cancerous ovarian tissue discovered talc fibers.

    “As many as 10,000 women develop ovarian cancer each year as a result of baby powder use,” says Harvard epidemiologist Dr. Daniel Cramer. Ovarian cancer is a serious disease anticipated to result in more than 14,000 deaths annually, in the United States.

    Talcum powder is widely used in cosmetic products, such as baby powder and adult body and facial powders. The powder — made from talc, a mineral that consists of the elements magnesium, silicon, and oxygen — is used to absorb moisture and cut down on friction. According to the American Cancer Society, some talc contains asbestos, a substance that has been linked to cancers in and around the lungs when inhaled.

  • According to a recent Harvard study, women who use talcum powder in the genital or perineal region could be at a 41% higher risk for developing ovarian cancer. As early as the 1970s, ovarian cancer experts have linked the routine use of baby powder for genital hygiene to an increased risk for contracting ovarian cancer. Putting any product that contains talc, including feminine body powders and talcum baby powders, on the genital area yields a 33% higher risk of cancer.
