Cervical, Ovarian, Uterine, Vaginal, Vulvar cancer are various types of gynecological cancers women must be made aware of. You must understand your risk factors and the various products on the market that can potentially cause these types of cancer. These cannot be ignored nor can the potential risk of your having used talcum powder for years.
Recently Johnson and Johnson paid 72 million dollars to a woman’s family after she passed away from ovarian cancer. The jury accepted the claim that the woman’s use of talcum powder products for feminine hygiene caused for her ovarian cancer and eventual death. There are no warning labels on Johnson and Johnson’s Baby Powder or Shower to Shower that their these products may be harmful to women if used this way.
This is not a new idea but women have been shocked and are frightened now. If you feel ashamed talking about your private parts then realize these manufacturers used your fear of not smelling fresh to sell this product and never told you about the ovarian cancer risk. It has been reported that over 98,000 women have been diagnosed with gynecologic cancers last year. Many of these were due to ovarian cancer and we do not know how many of them used the “stay dry” talcum powder marketed to them.
Do you still use talcum powder for personal hygiene? How many other products do you use that you have no clue may harm you? The manufacturers certainly did not fess up and you obviously cannot trust them to tell you.
After the Johnson and Johnson fiasco I realized how many dangerous drugs and devices that are massive lawsuits have targeted women. We speak to women every day about the potential risk of using talcum powder and people who have lost a loved one to ovarian cancer and now realize their mother, sister grandmother, wife or loved one used these products right where the particles can travel to the ovaries.
The more I speak with callers about their ovarian cancer and their use of talcum powder products the more I realize how careful we must be and how glad I am my mother pushed old fashioned corn starch. It was also alot cheaper in those days. But, J & J found a great market to go after. The black and Hispanic women who wanted to fit into a white society and smell clean and nice became the ultimate target. They knew that choosing their product, if marketed correctly, had very little to do with awareness of cancer health, and totally due to fear of not smelling like a pretty white princess all day and every day.
Black woman often used talcum powder for her their entire adult life. These products seemed safe, after all, mothers used talcum powder on their babies, right? Using Talcum Powder products were a part of being in with the other girls. Yet, as far back as 2005 Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center did a study about these products. Another study was published in 1997. The studies suggested there might be a connection between talcum powder use and ovarian cancer.
