Joe Rogan discusses the harmful effects of asbestos in talc
During a discussion with comedian and actress Whitney Cummings, Joe Rogan raised the issue of asbestos in talc.
Cummings said: “We used to say [talcum] in underwear before basketball games. There were 50,000 lawsuits and they (a talc company) paid, I think, 8 or 9 billion, which is probably nothing to them, other than women getting ovarian cancer from because of the asbestos it contains. »

Rogan added: “Yes, that’s what I was reading, that talc and asbestos are often in the same place and they don’t filter it well. They don’t even test if the talc contains asbestos .”
Joe Rogan read an article on Google that stated: “Since talc and asbestos are minerals found in close proximity to each other during talc mining, they may contain traces of asbestos. Talcum powder is still an ingredient in several cosmetic brands. As recently as November 2020, a study found that 14% of talc-containing makeup tested also contained asbestos.
