Every second house has a baby powder. Also you can find it in the houses without babies where the women are using the powder for softer skin and better look.


If you are one of those who use baby powder, you need to stop in this very moment.

The women are having increased risk of ovarian cancer for 33% when are using baby powder, particularly the one from Johnson and Johnson.

Almost 10.000 women are developing ovarian cancer with using baby powder, Dr. Daniel Carmer said.

The shocking facts

It was proved in a study back in 1982 that there is a relation between baby powder and ovarian cancer in women. The results showed that the women who used talc based powders have 300 times bigger risk of diagnosing cancer.

Johnson and Johnson company was obligated to tell the truth that was hidden behind these results.

Read and Follow the Labels

Examine the label on the bottle of baby powder carefully. You will notice the warnings.

You will notice that you need to elude inhalation and eye contact. You will never read anything about the talc particles, which can stick on your skin for years and travel to your ovaries. You will also never read about the talcs capacity for causing inflammation that is suitable environment for cancer cells.

It is strange that the corporation acknowledged the study from 1982 and its results anyhow they assumed that warning about the negative side effects from the baby powder is not needed.

Thats not all

You will risk your babys health if you are using this baby powder on it. The American Academy of Pediatrics warned the parents about the negative effects of the baby powder, particularly the talc based ones. It is very easy for the talc to become airborne and it can be inhaled from the baby, which can cause dried mucus linings.

It will have negative impact on your babys breathing and may cause stifling. There are recorded cases of children suffering from pneumonia that can be related with a baby powder usage. But you cant blame the parents because they couldnt read it on the label.

Why Hide The Facts?

The money are the main reason for hiding these facts. Surely, you will never buy some product that has ability to cause cancer.

There were many low cases that bound the company to change the warning label. Risk of Cancer could be the perfect sticker on the label that hopefully will be reason for the company to pull out their products from the store shelves.
