Women should stop using talcum powder because of the risk of ovarian cancer, according to researchers.

Women warned of talcum powder cancer risk
Article in the Telegraph

The greater risk of ovarian cancer from using talcum powder on the private parts has been known for years, but this latest research finds that the increased risk is greater than previously thought. - It is an insidious, often fatal disease which frequently goes unrecognised/undiagnosed/untreated, so it's best to take this research seriously and avoid using talc on the private parts.

Extract from the article:

"Scientists fear particles applied to the private parts may travel to the ovaries and trigger a process of inflammation that allows cancer cells to flourish.

Although previous studies have raised concerns over talc, the latest findings from the United States suggest woman who use it are 40 per cent more likely to get ovarian cancer – a much greater risk than first thought.

Experts from Harvard Medical School in Boston studied more than 3,000 women and found using talc merely once a week raised the risk of cancer by 36 per cent, rising to 41 per cent for those applying powder every day.

Dr Maggie Gates, who led the study, said that until the outcome of further research women should avoid using talc in the genital area. An alternative is cornstarch powder."
