A SHOCKING REVELATION
Asbestos is often associated with the workplace and construction sites, but unbeknownst to most, this toxic mineral has been hiding in plain sight. Believe it or not, many talcum powders contain this cancer-causing agent.
Talcum powder has been used for generations by men, women, and children as part of their daily hygiene routine. Intended as a refreshing product to use after bathing to keep smelling and feeling fresh, our clients have reported using it all over their bodies, even in their shoes to absorb moisture and odors. For decades, talcum powder has been marketed for use on babies and children to prevent rashes and chafing. Families have used it on infants for diapering throughout the day and on young children after bathing.
Alarmingly, this popular product that is stored in the vanities and cabinets of homes across the country, is not as innocent as it once seemed. Instead, talcum powder has been shown to be a slow-acting killer.
