Talcum powder linked to cancer

Using talcum powder regularly appears to increase a woman’s risk of ovarian cancer by almost a quarter, reports The Guardian. Millions of women are believed to use talcum powder – which is made from a soft mineral called hydrous magnesium silicate – for reasons of intimate personal hygiene. Scientists have long been concerned about the minute particles travelling into the body, and becoming embedded in the ovaries, causing a kind of inflammation that allows cancer cells to flourish. However, previous studies into a possible link have been inconclusive. For the latest research, a team at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston conducted a meta-analysis of eight studies, involving nearly 20,000 women, around 8,500 of whom had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. The results showed that regularly applying the powder after bathing or showering raised the cancer risk by 24%. However, they stressed that the possible danger applied only to using talc around the genitals, not elsewhere on the body.
