Empower Yourself With The Facts About Drugs & Medical Devices

Drugs and Medical Devices Can Cause Serious Side Effects – Modern medicine has yielded a number of different drugs and medical devices that are used when our health fails us. Oftentimes, we depend on these products to cure or treat an illness. However, not all drugs and devices are safe. Sometimes, pharmaceutical companies recognize the opportunity for profit and sell a product with known dangers without informing the public. Your Health Alert is here to keep consumers informed of the risks of certain drugs and medical devices.

Talcum Powder

Talcum powder is used to calm diaper rash, but adults also use talcum powder to absorb body moisture. Women’s use of talcum powder has been tied to increased female cancers, including ovarian cancer and, in post-menopausal women, endometrial cancers. The American Cancer Society has suggested that, until we know more about the risks associated with consumer talcum powder, people should consider using cornstarch-based cosmetic products, which have not been associated with any cancer.

Nursing Home

Everyone should be treated with dignity and compassion, especially people who are unable to care for themselves and must be cared for by others.
