What Constituents in the Talcum Powder Cause Ovarian Cancer?
Primarily, talcum is made using the following ingredients:
This substance is ground into a powder form. Then, the product can reduce friction and absorb moisture. For this reason, the powder is used to prevent individuals from developing rashes and to keep areas of the skin dry. However, when this product is used on the genital areas, these harmful particles can travel inside the body where is can become trapped in the ovaries. When this occurs, a woman can sustain serious inflammation of the ovaries, which can cause ovarian cancer cells to grow.
In addition, the Cancer Prevention Research journal states that women increase their risks of ovarian cancer by 41% when they use talc-based powder near the genitals. Yet, these dangerous products have not yet been removed from the market nor have they been regulated or manufactured with warnings attached.
