Better to just use some cornstarch, cheaper and easier to get.
Technically, talc itself has not been linked to cancer. It is actually asbestos contamination of talc that is the problem. In a limited study, US manufacturers if talc were clean of asbestos. However, it can be difficult to know the source of talc in a product.
Regardless, I agree that simple cornstarch is cheaper.
