In a shocking report, it’s been revealed that Johnson & Johnson knew for decades that their baby powder had occasionally tested positive for small amounts of asbestos.
Reuters conducted an in-depth investigation, in which they discovered that Johnson & Johnson knew the talc in their products contained cancer causing carcinogen from 1971 to the early 2000’s. This information was never disclosed to the public.
Although many published reports reveal a link between use of talcum powder and ovarian cancer, millions of men and women still use it to absorb moisture.
In 1971 researchers discovered particles of talc in 75 percent of the ovarian tumors they studied. When a woman uses talc containing baby powder on her genital area, the powder particles can travel through the vagina, into the uterus and fallopian tubes and to the ovaries.
Study after study for the last 50 years shows that talc is very dangerous.
- Proposed label from Cancer Prevention Coalition for all Talc Products: “Frequent application of talcum powder in the female genital area substantially increases the risk of ovarian cancer,” http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/petition-seeking-a-cancer-warning-on-cosmetic-talc-powder-products-57264457.html .
- Current warning label from Johnson’s Baby Powder:“Warnings: For external use only. Keep out of reach of children. Close tightly after use. Do not use on broken skin. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep powder away from child’s face to avoid inhalation, which can cause breathing problems.”
- According to the Ecologist, “since the early 1980s, records show that several thousand infants each year have died or become seriously ill following accidental inhalation of baby powder.”
- Talc has been implicated in many reports of lung irritation, respiratory distress, respiratory failure. A 2015 review of evidence published in Occupational and Environmental Medicine revealed an increase in lung cancer mortality rates among talc miners.
