Wednesday, April 6, 2016 - In response to the recent talcum powder ovarian cancer lawsuit verdict in St. Louis, a Malaysian consumer organization has urged its government to immediately ban talcum powder products.
When you put a picture of a cute baby on a bottle of your product and promote its use on delicate baby skin, it is hard to fathom that the product may, in fact, be a deadly killer. Recently a $72 million lawsuit was settled in favor of the estate of a plaintiff who died as a direct result of using baby powder made from magnesium silicate hydroxide, a.k.a. talc. Because studies have linked asbestos-free talc with ovarian cancer, Qatar, and now the Consumers Association of Penang is urging the country's Health Ministry to ban all talc-based products in that nation. Talc is the main ingredient in certain powders, medications, and perfumes.
The Consumer Association of Penang (CAP) is warning Malaysians that talc is toxic and can cause tumors. The product's small particles can become embedded in the lungs and the ovaries. Studies have shown that women using talcum powder as a drying agent or for feminine hygiene on their genital area have a greater risk of ovarian cancer than those who do not use the product. Ovarian cancer is often deadly because it is difficult to detect until its advanced and final stages.
