Can Talc Cause Cancer?

by Tami Chase

We have a lot of women asking if we will come up with a talc for feminine hygiene, like baby powder, in my reading I am finding that it has been linked to ovarian cancer.  This is a very scary thought as we have all used it on our babies and even on occassion on ourselves.  Beauty Brains has written a great article that breaks down the study, so you can see just what was involved in the testing.  I was looking for an alternative for my son and I think I might have to go throw out my baby powder right now! says that ‘Talc poses a health risk when exposed to the lungs. Talc miners have shown higher rates of lung cancer and other respiratory illnesses from exposure to industrial grade talc, which contains dangerous silica and asbestos. The common household hazard posed by talc is inhalation of baby powder by infants. Since the early 1980s, records show that several thousand infants each year have died or become seriously ill following accidental inhalation of baby powder.”

Now I am asking myself, what is this about silica?  I thought that was good for you, hello, Fiji Water!  Looks like I have to do some more research, after all knowledge is power.

On a final note, our philosophy is that a spa girl is more than just the sum of her rockin’ haircut, perfect pout and peaceful grace.
