Government of Canada: Talc – Potential Risk of Lung Effects and Ovarian Cancer

Government of Canada website has a Dec. 5, 2018 posting, related to recalls and safety alerts, entitled:

Talc – Potential Risk of Lung Effects and Ovarian Cancer

Just so you know:

Avoid inhaling loose talc powders;

Avoid female genital exposure to products containing talc;

Keep baby powder away from a child’s face to avoid inhalation;

Check product labels for talc and choose talc-free alternatives if concerned.

Commentary

That is quite a message.

I learned of this from a tweet:

Breaking news: Health Canada says talc may cause be a cause of ovarian cancer and lung problems – warning extends to talc in baby powder, diaper rash products, cosmetics, bath bombs, etc. http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/hc-sc/2018/68320a-eng.php
