Can Talc in Baby Powder Cause Cancer?


This week I investigate serious questions about a possible link between ovarian cancer and one of the most trusted product in America: baby powder. For years, scientific studies have indicated that the talc mineral used in baby powder can work its way into a woman’s reproductive tract, cause inflammation, and start the cancer process. The talc industry strongly denies any firm link and points to other studies that prove its product is safe. We’ll talk to one of the first scientists who uncovered the alleged cancer association, you’ll meet a woman who used baby powder every day for 30 years prior to getting ovarian cancer, and we’ll hear from the talc industry Sunday on Full Measure.

Also Lisa Fletcher asks the question: Do taxpayers really get the return they’re promised when they spend tens of millions of dollars on expensive, luxury sports stadiums?

And we’ll interview the head of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin), to get his take on a changing approach to fighting terrorism under the Trump administration.
