Joe Rogan discusses harmful effects of asbestos in talcum powder

In a discussion with comedian and actress Whitney Cummings, Joe Rogan raised the issue of asbestos in talcum powder.

Cummings said, "We used to put it [talcum] in our underwear before basketball games. There have been 50,000 lawsuits and they (a talc company) paid I think 8 or 9 billion which is probably nothing to them but the women getting ovarian cancer from the asbestos in it."

Rogan added, "Yeah that's what I was reading, that talc and asbestos are often in the same spot and they don't filter it out well. They don't even test to see if the talc has asbestos in it."
