They Knew It As Early As 1971
In 1971, scientists concluded there was a possible connection between the dusting of female genitals with talcum powder and ovarian cancer. They advised that talc particles entered a woman’s reproductive tract through the vagina and traveled through the cervix into the uterus, then moved through the fallopian tubes to the ovaries. The Lancelet journal reported that a majority of ovarian tumors had particles of talc deeply embedded in them. Ovarian cancer often goes undetected until it has spread to the pelvis and stomach. At this late stage, ovarian cancer is more difficult to treat and can be fatal.
That study was followed by another published in 1982 in the journal Cancer, which provided supporting research linking the powder and ovarian cancer. Since then, more than 20 studies showed similar cause-effect relationships.
