Do you Powder Your Lady Bits? If so, read on...


Okay, the other night an advertisement popped on the TV screen for an attorney's office and asked if you or a loved one was diagnosed with ovarian cancer following the use of a talcum powder product, you may be entitled to compensation through a talcum powder cancer lawsuit.

I was like "duh, I've been know to buff my lady bits with baby powder, especially on hot, humid days." 

Baby Powder Ovarian Cancer Risk

Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer RiskThe talcum powder ovarian cancer risk has been documented through numerous studies dating back to 1982. When talc products such as baby powder are applied to the genital region, talc particles can travel through the female reproductive system to the ovaries. Talc particles may remain in the ovaries for many years, causing inflammation and creating an environment conducive to the growth of cancer cells. One expert estimates that roughly 10,000 women each year develop ovarian cancer as a result of using baby powder or body powder.

What?  If this is true why aren't their warnings on the side of the bottle?

So I did some internet research and there does seem to be all sort of lawsuits against baby powder companies.   Yikes; now I have something else to worry about.

Did you know about this?  Are you still using powder?  And what about parents using the product on their little baby girls... could this do something to her ovaries?

I wonder, how true it is, because you would think they would have warning labels. No I don't powder in that area, but I do powder my stomach area. Then they went through a scare about deodorant causing breast cancer, to me it sounds like someone is trying to grab straws and blame something,since they can't blame someone. I would think the powder, un less you are really slapping it on, could not travel up the vagina into the ovary area because a warm moist area would make the powder stick. Right?

I saw news articles about this todsy( or perhaps it was lawyer-type commercials) urging those who powdered and developed ovarian cancer to contact a certain agency for possible compensation.
I thought, "What female hasn't done that in their life?!" And if so and developed ovarian cancer, how does one prove that powdering did that....or how does one prove that one powdered "there. ". So many thoughts ran through my head as I watched the ad.
Interesting what revelations have come about. I'm wondering what they are gonna say about kids who ever ste dirt?! I reckon it will eventually come out that it caused something bad to happen.... Whaddaya think?! :)
