Talcum powder related to ovarian cancer

Hi all,

I recently came across this article, http://thelawfirm.com/talcum-powder-lawsuit/. It is said that the use of talcum powder causes ovarian cancer among women. And there are many cases reported. Talcum Powder may cause ovarian cancer if regularly applied to genitals. It is also stated that of the approximately 33,000 women who develop ovarian cancer about 66% of them are in advanced stages at the time of diagnosis.

This plays a large part in the amount of deaths related to this type of cancer. More women die from ovarian cancer than any other cancer in the United States. But, it is really hard to believe it. Could this be true? Has anyone heard about this yet? Or anyone having personal experience?
