Green Eclectic Mama for #tossthetalc

I am extremely passionate about educating you on the dangers of using #talc. I started my journey on the #cleanbeauty path in high school. We need to be mindful of what goes on our bodies as well as in them. Our skin is the largest organ, and everything we put on it is absorbed. Talc is a mineral composed of elements. It’s mainly magnesium, silicon, and oxygen. However, asbestos, which is dangerous and known to cause cancer, can be found in talc naturally. In October 2019, the FDA found asbestos in @jnj baby powder. Stores like Walmart and CVS took it off the shelves. Johnson & Johnson recalled 33,000 bottles “out of an abundance of caution”. They keep saying their #babypowder is safe even though studies have shown otherwise.Each year 22,000 women are diagnosed with #ovariancancer. It is the fifth leading cause of death in women. About 14,000 die from ovarian cancer, 2,500 incidents of ovarian cancer are caused by talc, and around 1,500 deaths a year are linked to talc use. Currently, there are over 35 studies that link talc use to ovarian cancer. Talc is in @jnj Baby Powder and Shower to Shower. Two common products women have been using on themselves and their babies for decades. Even research funded by @jnj stated that talc use for feminine hygiene increases chances in developing ovarian cancer. Women who use baby powder may have talc particles in their ovarian tissue, even after years of discontinued use. It is possible for the particles to cause inflammation that allows cancer cells to grow and spread in the ovaries.Talcum powder is banned from condoms, medical gloves, and pediatricians no longer recommend it to parents to use because of bad health effects. Please check these items at home that commonly contain talc, cosmetics, dry shampoo, laundry soap, baby powder, arts and crafts, and deodorant. Join me to #tossthetalc and get rid of them. You can buy or make natural powder with cornstarch, arrowroot powder, and other safe, natural ingredients. I use a combination of bentonite clay, cornstarch, arrowroot powder, rice flour, finely ground dried chamomile flowers, chamomile, and lavender essential oils.You can also leave it unscented. #truthabouttalcpartner
