Talcum powder, or baby powder, is commonly used by mothers to reduce diaper rash in babies as well as a means of personal hygiene for women. This decade old practice is dangerous. Unfortunately, recent studies and the American Cancer Society report that the use of talcum powder around the genital area, or perineum, may increase the risk of ovarian cancer.
In addition, the inhalation of significant amounts of talcum dusting powder can cause acute or chronic lung irritation, also known as talcosis. Long-term exposure to talc fibers in work environments, such as talc mines, can also attribute to higher risks of lung cancer.
