Largest-Ever Talc Study Finds No Clear Cancer Link

A federally funded study including data from over 250,000 subjects has found that women who used talc for feminine hygiene did not face a significantly increased risk of developing ovarian cancer, Reuters reports.

While there were variations in ovarian cancer incidence among subjects who used talc compared to those who did not, researchers concluded that these variations were not large enough to be statistically significant.

While this study has not definitively ruled out talc as a contributing factor to ovarian cancer, it will likely present a challenging obstacle for plaintiffs’ lawyers attempting to make that link in the courtroom.
