Jury Finds Johnson & Johnson Liable for Ovarian Cancer Death Linked to Talcum Powder; $72 Millio
Right off the top, I’m going to have to warn you that this is more of a rant than a blog.
I cringe when I see companies claiming to be safe for moms and babies alike knowingly continue to sell a product that has been linked to cancer since a study was done in the 1980’s. They could have quite easily change their formulation and yet simply chose to close their eyes and fill their pockets. Shame of them! I can’t even say that I am happy with the verdict. What I am is angered… angered and saddened.
Did you know that talc particles have been found in ovarian cancer cells? Literally found embedded in the cells. Oh, we just “love” the fresh smell of baby powder, so just use it liberally on all of our body parts and all over baby’s body parts.

Someone sent me a message today asking what else could they use for those areas. I checked out what David Suzuki had to say on the matter and you can find his recipes here: http://www.davidsuzuki.org/publications/downloads/2012/QueenofGreen-babycare.pdf
Personally, I don’t use cornstarch anymore. With corn being one of the most highly modified foods (GMO), I just use arrowroot powder. It pretty much works the same and you can always buy it at any Bulk Barn. We sell the clay here. You can use any white clay and it would have the same effect (to dry and soothe the area).
Okay, well thanks for letting me get that off my chest.
