Talcum powder is no stranger to American homes nor is it a stranger to danger. It has been a staple in bathrooms for decades. That being said, people have not always viewed talcum powder as a harmless product. For a considerable length of time, it has been argued that talcum powder has the potential to increase the risk of ovarian cancer when used for the purposes of maintaining intimate feminine hygiene. Question marks over the safety of the product have been raised for years. As a matter of fact, the very first evidence of a possible connection between the product and ovarian cancer was first brought to light in the early 70s.
