Ovarian Cancer and Talcum Powder

There is a keepsake box at the bottom of Katie Searle-Jones' wardrobe that she opens when she wants to feel close to her late mother.
Inside is a locket containing a portrait of Pamela, a midwife, who died 11 years ago of ovarian cancer, age 50.
Also inside that box is a small container of baby powder. After Pamela died, all it took was a sniff of its wholesome, reassuring scent to vividly bring back her memory.......

.....It is the second lawsuit this year concerning the safety of talc. Two months earlier, another U.S. jury awarded £50 million to the family of Jacqueline Fox, who used Johnson & Johnson talc products for 35 years. She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2013 and died, age 62, last year.
