the obvious point......is that the best you can do!

Talcum powder is usually made up of various combinations of zinc stearate, magnesium silicates, as well as other silicates which are finely ground. The size of particles is so small that they are both easily carried in the air like dust and can reach even the smallest areas of the lung.

So, clearly talc can cause pneumonia, inflammation (or swelling) of the airways of babies,ADULTS and even death. What about cancer? When the link to asbestos and cancer came to light, it was noticed that a lot of the exposure to asbestos was accompanied by other things which could be inhaled, such as fibres and dust - including talc

the obvious point......THAT YOU WILL NEVER GET!
