The largest study to date did not find a significant link overall between using powder in the genital area and ovarian cancer in women. However, because of the rarity of ovarian cancer, the study still may not have been large enough to detect a possible small increase in risk, according to the study authors.
A new report from the American Cancer Society finds rates of ovarian cancer have declined by 29% between 1985 and 2014. Ovarian cancer deaths have declined 33% between 1976 and 2015.
Researchers from the American Cancer Society have found that women who spend 6 hours or more of free time sitting per day have a 10% greater risk of getting cancer than women who spend less than 3 hours of free time sitting per day.
