Titanium dioxide is widely used as a colorant–to whiten or provide opacity–in a variety of consumer products, including paints, plastics, papers, inks, foods, toothpastes, and cosmetic and skin care products. Many of the safety concerns are related to occupational hazards, which have been linked to cancer and Alzhemier's Disease.
