    Talc powder is a household item, sold globally for use in personal hygiene and cosmetics. Suspicions have been raised that its use contributes to certain types of disease, mainly cancers of the ovaries and lungs. It is classified as a group 3 agent in the IARC listing.[10] Reviews by Cancer Research UK and the American Cancer Society conclude that some studies have found a link, but other studies have not.[11][12]

    The studies discuss pulmonary issues,[13] lung cancer,[14][15] and ovarian cancer.[16] One of these, published in 1993, was a US National Toxicology Program report, which found that cosmetic grade talc containing no asbestos-like fibres was correlated with tumor formation in rats forced to inhale talc for 6 hours a day, five days a week over at least 113 weeks.[14] A 1971 paper found particles of talc embedded in 75% of the ovarian tumors studied.[17] Research published in 1995 and 2000 concluded that it was plausible that talc could cause ovarian cancer, but no conclusive evidence was shown.

    Pulmonary talcosis, less specifically referred to as talcosis, is a pulmonary disorder caused by talc.

    It has been related to silicosis resulting from inhalation of talc and silicates. It is also tied to heroin use where talc might be used as an adulterant to increase weight and street value.[1] It is one of several noted associations and possible risks of street heroin use.[2] Talcosis can also arise from the injection of drugs intended for oral administration, as talc is present in many tablets and capsules that are used intravenously, such as benzodiazepines, dextroamphetamine, and prescription opioids.

    Is Talc an additive in cigarettes and does talc have any cause in Alzheimer plaques in the brain?

    Talc or talcum is a clay mineral composed of hydrated magnesium silicate with the chemical formula H2Mg3(SiO3)4 or Mg3Si4O10(OH)2.

    • Talc is not soluble in water. It will endup in formation of suspension. This is because the presence of silicate in talc. and silicate which is characterised by their insolubility.

    If it is not soluble in water, that would mean that it does not 'dissolve'. if it does not dissolve, and if the part of the body which has the 'talc' on it is not allowing for moisture to enter in or through, #1: how would the talc be expelled/taken off from the body? and #2: How would it be expelled if ingested?


    In chemistry, a suspension is a heterogeneous mixture that contains solid particles sufficiently large for sedimentation. The particles may be visible to the naked eye, usually must be larger than 1 micrometer, and will eventually settle. A suspension is a heterogeneous mixture in which the solute particles do not dissolve, but get suspended throughout the bulk of the solvent, left floating around freely in the medium.

    Talc is used in many industries, including paper making, plastic, paint and coatings, rubber, food, electric cable, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and ceramics. A coarse grayish-green high-talc rock is soapstone or steatite, used for stoves, sinks, electrical switchboards, crayons, soap, etc. It is often used for surfaces of laboratory table tops and electrical switchboards because of its resistance to heat, electricity and acids. Talc finds use as a cosmetic (talcum powder), as a lubricant, and as a filler in paper manufacture. It is used to coat the insides of inner tubes and rubber gloves during manufacture to keep the surfaces from sticking. Talc, with heavy refinement, has been used in baby powder, an astringent powder used to prevent diaper rash. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that parents not use baby powder because it poses a risk of respiratory problems, including breathing trouble and serious lung damage if the baby inhales it. The small size of the particles makes it difficult to keep them out of the air while applying the powder. Zinc oxide-based ointments are a much safer alternative.[7]

    It is also often used in basketball to keep a player's hands dry. Most tailor's chalk, or French chalk, is talc, as is the chalk often used for welding or metalworking.

    Talc is also used as food additive or in pharmaceutical products as a glidant. In medicine, talc is used as a pleurodesis agent to prevent recurrent pleural effusion or pneumothorax. In the European Union, the additive number is E553b.

    Why should I need to worry about being invaded by martians or by violent persons if i can't even eat and drink without needing to worry about what 'additive' might have been 'added'?

    And then to drink it out of a plastic container which supposedly has 'talc' and estrogen mimicking chemicals... estrogen mimicking chemicals would cause estrogen hormone results, as if estrogen was being taken.

    And there is wonder why there is such a high spike in less testosterone and more estrogen like qualities in both males and females...

    2 examples:

    #1: Less 'hairy' men.
    #2: Less 'pimples' on teens.


    Hair on backs at one time was more common than not..
    Then hair on chest
    Then hair on legs
    Then hair on arms
    Then hair on face
    Then hair in 'pubic zones'; such as groin and underarm.

    The hair is disappearing everywhere except for on top of the head.

    If not disappearing, then becoming alot more sparse.


    Why was it that when males had less estrogen than testosterone in their bodies, before the manufacturing and uses of plastics and modern chemistry in foods, etc, were the youths less prone to 'masturbate' at young ages? Only after the estrogen was introduced to their daily life, did males begin at younger ages.


    Maybe frequent masturbation is NOT a 'normal' thing if males are not hormoned imbalanced.


    A masculine man with no leg hair? I don't know..

    Women are supposed to be the ones with 'smooth' legs.. Not males.'

    Being more fascinated with Sci-Fi than reality? Children are more interested in Sci-Fi than adults.

    Th natural results of testosterone is 'hair'. The natural results of estrogen is 'lack of hair'. The natural productions of testosterone is 'muscle mass'. The natural results of estrogen is 'softened muscle mass'; like breasts.

    Women's breast are estrogen produced. If men were to take estrogen, they would develop more 'breasts' than remaining the way they were before they began taking estrogen. Trans men to female on hormone therapy develop their 'breasts' this way. Stay on the estrogen long enough and they can develop sizeable breasts. But this is not their 'natural' body hormone composition. They 'ingest' estrogen pills. Just like some estrogen mimicking chemicals are in plastics. And when we use plastic cups, we ingest bits and pieces of those chemicals.

    I'm not poking 'fun' at anyone.. If everyone were to be left in their natural hormone balance, there would be alot less males acting and thinking and responding like females and a lot less females acting, thinking and responding like males.


    Imbalanced hormoned persons can go through very severe mood swings.

    Today's 20 and 30 something males are more androgynous than male. It's not their choosing... It's just what's being sold in the supermarkets; in foods, in dinner ware, in drink ware, in body wash, soaps, laundry detergents, shampoo, deodorant, etc...

    GMO foods are hormoned imbalanced foods. Some 'milks' they sell in fast food chains, are from 'hormoned treated' cows or 'injected cows' to help produce 'better milk'. No.. no injection to a healthy cow helps them produce 'better' milk.


    So why think anybody is attacking any person who does not like to be more effeminate or masculine than what their food and daily purchases are turning them into? Noone is attacking what they are being turned into.. But it isn't natural.

    It could become 'natural' but it wasn't natural before your birth IF these things are 'natural' to you.

    So if you think these are natural, I would have to assume that you would be under the age of 30 or something. Because everyone over the age of 30, definitely 35, knows that zits are.


    And this gets into a whole another playing field. Kids attacking the aged. This also is mental instability. When a child or youth can tell an aged one a crude comment and not think anything of it.


    First off. Kids do not have the right to speak to aged ones like that.. of course if they themselves do not like the ways the adults carry themselves, then why can't something be done to have the adults be separated from the youths? Why can't it be done? Because they know they can get away with it. Because their intelligence cannot be measured greater than their desired age. A 25 year old acting like a 13 year old can pass because the 25 year old hangs around and has the mentality of the 13 year old and everyone around is fine and accepting of that. They desire to be treated and respected as a 25 year old but their ways are that of a 13. If at age 25 you are teaching the youths the 'attitudes' with swearings and cursings and the swags, then that 25 year old will not be respected as other 25 years old are. Even the nonchalance, i'm better than you, attitudes.
