The World Health Organization's (WHO) cancer research agency, the International Association for Research on Cancer (IARC), has declared talc to be fatal for humans. The organization says that this powder contains carcinogenic toxins. However, the agency has also stressed that more research is needed for this. But this does not mean that there is no truth in it.

Women are at risk of this cancer.

According to the IARC, talc can cause ovarian cancer in women. According to a study done on rats, there is 100% evidence that talc is linked to cancer in rats. There are signs of talc being carcinogenic in human cells.

What is talc?

Talc is a naturally occurring mineral that is mined in many places around the world. It is mostly used to make makeup products such as eyeshadow, blush, and talcum baby powder.

What is the use of talc?

Talc may be used in products to absorb moisture, prevent cracking, improve consistency, or make the product opaque.

How does talc cause cancer?

According to a report, not all talc used causes cancer. The risk occurs when talc mining sites are not carefully selected, and they become contaminated with asbestos. Asbestos is a carcinogenic compound and exposure to it increases the risk of cancer in and around the lungs manifold.
