Drs Candace Kasper and P J Chandler point out that the American Food and Drug Administration has recognized the dangers when talc has been applied to surgical gloves, and so banned the practice, but still allowed the substance to be coated on condoms. Their observations have been reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
