Talcum Powder

No talc here. Can't say I've ever used anything other than face powder, and that was in my 20s. But I stopped using it long ago.

Another thing to be concerned about: plastic bottles (such as those used to hold water). I've switched to glass bottles, which are difficult to find. I'm going to start having water in glass deliver through my house (I believe the company is Mountain Valley). Both of my nutritionists have told me to avoid plastic. Do not cook in it (microwave, etc.). And if you do drink out of plastic bottles, do not leave them in the car or let them heat up.

I have been a hardcore water drinker for most of my life. I wonder if the estrogens in plastic water bottles (which I totally left in my car) had anything to do with my DX.

Wine is a super sugar. I used to drink a lot of it, so perhaps that also contributed. And high-fat diets -- particularly those high in dairy products -- have been shown to correlate to greater incidences of cancer. I can't say that I ever ate a low-fat diet.

I, too, have heard about the correlation between talc use and ovarian cancer. The FDA required that asbestos be banned from talcum powder back in the late 80's. I did not know about this until recently and was a talc user after showers......sigh. It is hard to avoid everything that they say will cause cancer since the list grows on a daily basis. We can only try our best to live healthy and use caution in what we ingest and apply to our bodies. Good luck sisters.

I was never a regular talc user except maybe in the summertime. And even then, I never used a lot of it. When I was undergoing radiation, though, the skin was quite sore. Like Pambam, I used baby powder that's made with cornstarch.
