The National Cancer Institute estimates that there will be over 20,000 new cases of ovarian cancer in 2020. Unfortunately, ovarian cancer is also the most deadly of all gynecologic cancer. This is largely due to the fact that early-stage symptoms are very difficult to detect. To make matters worse there seems to be a link between talcum-power usage and ovarian cancer. Products that contain the mineral talc, such as Johnson & Johnson baby-powder, are often used as a feminine-hygiene product.
