I heard a guy representing the Goldwater Law Firm in Scottsdale, AZ last night on TV. He was looking for people who had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer who had used talcum powder. He said it could be Johnson's Baby Powder, Shower to Shower, or any other brand of talcum powder. He was implying that the talcum powder caused the ovarian cancer. He didn't say where you had to have used it on your body, but I assume he meant using it in the genital area. I am a three and a half year UPSC survivor, and since UPSC's supposed to be similar to ovarian cancer, it made me wonder if there was any relationship between UPSC cases and talcum powder use. I may have used it once or twice, but certainly not enough for it to have caused my cancer. My cancer had spread to both ovaries, the omentum, and the ilium and was stage IVb. I wondered if anyone else on here has heard about a study on this.
I also heard on my TV news last night that the FDA is studying caramel food coloring. They had done a study on it before and had declared it safe. But now they're looking into it again since Consumer Reports claims one of the chemicals that goes into it can cause cancer. The coloring is in a lot of sodas and is also used in some foods. I did drink a lot of soda with this coloring when I was young, so I found this interesting. I'm sure all the sugar in the soda didn't help matters any, either.
I thought these were things we should all know about, whether or not there turns out to be any truth to this information.
