A Harley Street gynaecologist, Dr Ahmed Ismail, who also agrees with these other experts says, “This is very, very unscientific. We are unable to detect the reasons for ovarian cancer. Whoever claims it is related to talcum powder, that’s a fallacy. We cannot say that we know there is a relationship between talcum powder and ovarian cancer.”
Dr Ismail says that at the present time there isn’t a way to test this link. The only way would be to test every woman in the country with ovarian cancer and conduct tests to see whether she had used talcum powder in the past.
