Research confirms that using the powder for feminine hygiene substantially increases the risk of cancer in women. In fact, women are up to 40 percent more likely to grow ovarian cancer than women who do not use this product.
Powder particles contained in the Johnson & Johnson product powder can enter the body and implanting in ovarian tissue, causing irritation that can cause the development of malignant tumors over time.
Because ovarian cancer often has no symptoms, it is usually not detected until it has spread throughout the pelvic region. This makes this type of cancer is very difficult to treat, and it can be fatal.
