#HealthAlert — Talcum Powder Causes Cancer

leave a comment »

Using talcum power in the genital area causes ovarian cancer.

Also, there are the dangers of an infant inhaling the powder, which could even kill a baby.

Researchers from the UK found particles of talc “deeply embedded” in a number of ovarian tumors.

All this is old news:

—  in the 1960″s, pediatricians warned about babies breathing in talcum powder

— in 1971, a published study confirmed the findings of talc particles in ovarian tumors, and in 1982 an epidemiologist published research that showed a link between talc use near the genitals and ovarian cancer

—  over ten years ago the International Agency for Research on Cancer listed talc as a “possible carcinogen.”

If you want to  use baby powder, use a version using corn starch; avoid chemicals such as triclosan and formaldehyde.  Be sure to read the label carefully so you get the right one — for both mom and baby!

 

 

The facts no one wants to read.

If the facts make you mad, it could be the truth hurts.
