Research Links Woman’s Case of Mesothelioma to Use of Talcum Powder

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that is used in many products that are found in the United States today. Unfortunately, exposure to Asbestos can lead to serious health complications, including a deadly form of cancer known as Mesothelioma.

While most Americans believe they aren’t at risk of Asbestos exposure, nothing could be further from the truth. Asbestos is used in a number of common items including insulation and cosmetics. In fact, one recent study linked Asbestos found in Talcum powder to a case of a woman who died of lung cancer.

According to a study released by Maney Online, researchers analyzed 50 containers of a specific brand of cosmetic Talcum powder and found a significant quantity of Asbestos in the product. The team then examined tissue samples collected from a woman who died of Mesothelioma and testified to only using that specific brand of Talcum powder. They found no other factors that could have led to the woman’s exposure to Asbestos and determined she had developed the cancer as a result of using the powder.

This particular case of Talcum powder cancer raises questions as to what the U.S. is doing to protect citizens from exposure to Asbestos.
