While you can’t always believe everything you read on the internet, sometimes you sure can find some really interesting videos. As we explained earlier this week, the science isn’t quite all in on the risks of Talcum powder in health and hygiene products.We thought we would share a few videos, just in case you were looking for more information.

While we would argue that a company has a responsibility to ensure it is honest in its offerings to the public, you may feel differently. We’d suggest you do a little more research on the claims in this video, as many are still under litigation.
With that being said, this video raises one very interesting question. To what extent are the manufactures of health products responsible for ensuring their products live up to their claims?
Personal care products have been the subject of scrutiny for some time. Consumer advocacy groups worry that many of the chemicals we use in our everyday lives haven’t been properly tested for human consumption. Some worry about the presence of chemicals in small concentrations which have been found to be harmful in other sources. Many packaging terms like ‘natural,’ don’t mean what the name might imply.
We saved this video for last because we think it sheds some light on just why this sort of research can take so long. In many cases, researchers are forced to put together information from a wide variety of sources. This sort of research can take years to accomplish.
While it’s not possible to live a life that’s 100% safe, paying attention to the products you use and consume can make a big difference. If you’re given the choice between using a tested and an untested product, why would you volunteer to be a guinea pig?
