Talcum powder has been a household product for over a century. As many believed the scented powder, commonly referred to as “baby powder,” was completely harmless it quickly became a household staple for women and infants.
In fact, the scented talcum powder produced by Johnson & Johnson was so commonly used that many women have nostalgically associated with the now controversial powder with the memories of their newborn infants. That is why it has come to a shock to the people who trusted this product the most that Johnson & Johnson may have concealed information regarding its safety.

According to medical professionals, it is very difficult to conduct an accurate study determining if there is a true link between genital exposure to talc powder and Ovarian Cancer.
