Canada Moves Toward Increased Talc Restrictions - Bonne News

Canada became the first country to legally restrict the use of talc-based products for public safety. In April, Health Canada issued an official recommendation that loose talc products, such as body powder, baby powder and genital deodorant, could cause serious lung problems and ovarian cancer. Proposed restrictions on the use of talc for over-the-counter drugs.
