Millions of women who use talcum powder for personal hygiene could be at risk for ovarian cancer.
Potentially devastating reports suggest a correlation between women who frequently use talcum powder and an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer.
Ovarian cancer kills an average of 14,000 American women each year.
The American Cancer Society explains that talcum powder might cause cancer if the powder particles (applied to the genital area) travel through the vagina, uterus, and fallopian tubes to the ovary.
Victims of ovarian cancer are subject to the following:

Talcum powder, from the manufacturer Johnson & Johnson, is made from the mineral talc. It absorbs moisture and helps reduce friction. Many women have used it on their genital areas for years without a second thought because it decreases odor and discomfort.
Ovarian cancer can occur when particles of the talcum powder, dusted over a woman’s genital area, enter the body, eventually reaching the ovaries. Once in the ovaries, these foreign particles can cause cells to turn cancerous, beginning the early stages of ovarian cancer. Ovarian cancer is the fifth most deadly cancer for women in the United States.
Research from as early as 1971 pointed to a possible correlation between the use of talcum powder and ovarian cancer. A 2013 study showed an increased risk of ovarian cancer in 20 to 30 percent of women who used talcum powder for intimate personal hygiene.
The talcum powder manufacturer Johnson & Johnson has repeatedly contested these studies to decrease its exposure to litigation.
Their failure to label talcum powder with the necessary warning about potential ovarian cancer may have caused—and continues to cause—countless women to suffer tremendously because of ovarian cancer.
