  • Answer: Normally, no liquids or sealed containers of powder can be brought aboard the plane. Exceptions are made for baby items (diaper change, bottles, and baby food) and for prescription medicines. You should call the airport that you are planning on departing from to find out for sure. The airlines or your travel agent can give you the latest information.(see the related link )
  • Answer: Most states will give you a citation for not having a drivers license.
  • Answer: Inhaling baby powder or simply having it on your skin can cause cancer. Frequent inhalation of talc has been linked to lung cancer, especially in those that mine talc. Babies are especially at risk, and several have died as the result of baby powder inhalation. Women that frequently use baby powder to absorb genital moisture are also at an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer. In fact, many doctors treating these women have found talc residue in the tumors themselves.

    GENERAL HEALTH EFFECTS- PHYSICIANS NOTE
    Massive accidental aspiration may cause impaction blockage of airways. Lesser amounts may lead to bronchoconstriction, bronchitis, pulmonary edema, or fibrosis. Respiratory arrest should be treated with intensive supportive therapy and oxygen. If respiration is compromised, endotracheal intubation, removal of impacted material, and assisted breathing should be considered.
  • Answer: Not everything "used on babies" has been found to be safe. That is why there are many regulations on products for infants, and frequent recalls of infant products.

    Reasearch shows the following:

    This is a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) which states:
    "The substance is toxic to lungs, mucous membrane."

    Frequent exposure may cause particulates to lodge in the lungs. One case showed crystallosis in the lymph glands of a woman who used dental powder containing Tricalcium Phosphate.
    Beta TCP has been banned, in some forms, for use as a bone filler.

    Use only pure cornstarch as baby powder, if you use anything. Rotate the bottle with your wrist intsead of shaking the bottle. The powder will tumble through the holes gently. Never shake the powder.


    ANY particulate can be unhealthy when inhaled.


    FACT:
    Even baby powder that says "pure cornstarch" on the label may contain Tricalcium Phosphate. Read the ingredients.

  • Answer: Without knowing exactly what the powder is it is impossible to say. As it is in a diaper it is likely to be non-toxic.

    HOWEVER
    it is better to be safe than sorry! If you are worried that you or anyone else may have been poisoned you should contact the emergency services:
     
    In the USA dial 911
    In the United Kingdom dial 999
    In Europe dial 112


    In the US you can also contact the National Poison Control Center Freephone on:
    1-800-222-1222


    "This is a free and confidential service... You should call if you have any questions about poisoning or poison prevention. It does NOT need to be an emergency. You can call for any reason, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week."
