Fears that using talcum powder can increase women’s risk of ovarian cancer are groundless, says a study. The verdict comes despite 22 victims winning damages after a jury found using talc had caused their cancer. But a study of 252,745 women says there is “not a statistically significant association” between using talcum powder on the genital area and the 2168 who went on to develop ovarian cancer.
