ER physician Dr. Travis Stork asks trial lawyer Mark Lanier about the link between asbestos and cancer. Mark shares there can be a 30-40-year latency period before you develop cancer after your exposure. Talc and talcum powder is found in many items, not just baby powder. It’s in medicated foot powders, and powder-based makeup. Mark shares he makes sure that his daughters buy makeup that is talc-free, stating there is no reason to use products with talc and there are lots of good alternatives.
