Talcum Powder and Cancer
While talc and cancer are not inextricably linked, if talcum powder contains asbestos, this puts the consumer at risk of cancer. Consumers have the right to know whether they have used products containing asbestos traces. The following products have been found in the past to contain asbestos:
- Bauer and Black Baby Talc
- Cashmere Bouquet Body Talc
- Clubman Talcum Powder
- Coty Airspun Face Powder
- Desert Flower Dusting Powder
- English Leather After Shave Talc
- Faberge Brut Talc
- Friendship Garden Talc Powder
- Mennen Shave Talc
- Old Spice Talcum
- Rosemary Talc
- Yardley Invisible Talc
- Yardley Black Label Baby Powder
- ZBT Baby Powder With Baby Oil
It’s important to note that cancers linked to asbestos exposure can take decades to develop.
Mesothelioma and Talcum Powder
Ovarian cancer isn’t the only illness that can lead to a talcum powder suit: There’s also a link between talc and mesothelioma. Mesothelioma occurs when someone inhales airborne asbestos fibers. That means that if talcum powder contaminated by asbestos is inhaled, it can lead to mesothelioma. Talcum powder particles are very small, meaning that it’s easily inhaled. When asbestos-laced talc enters the body, the asbestos can lodge in the tissues and cause damage that leads to cancer.
Talc and Ovarian Cancer: What Type of Cancer Does Talcum Powder Cause?
Links have been found between talcum powder and ovarian cancer, and research has also found evidence linking talcum powder and cervical cancer. How does talcum powder cause ovarian cancer? When it’s used on sanitary napkins, undergarments, and other items that sit close to the vulva, talc with asbestos contamination can travel into the vagina and the rest of the female reproductive system. In addition, talc has been linked to lung cancer and mesothelioma, primarily in workers who mine talc. There are no known links between talc and other types of cancer, but it has been speculated to cause uterine cancer and stomach cancer, too.
