Talc, the key ingredient in baby powder, is a naturally occurring mineral that is found throughout the world. Talc is a soft mineral comprised of magnesium, silicon and oxygen.

Talc particles that reach the ovaries can result in the growth of ovarian cancer cells. Experts estimate that roughly one in five American women applies talcum powder to her genitals on a regular basis. Some ovarian cancer research has noted a possible link between use of talc in the genital area and ovarian cancer.  Latest findings suggest that women who use talcum powder are 40 percent more likely to get ovarian cancer. 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 ovarian cancer by 36 percent, rising to 41 percent for those applying powder daily.

Statistics have shown that there are several thousand infants each year that have died or become seriously ill following accidental inhalation of baby powder. Exposing children to this may be unnecessary and dangerous.
