Is Talc ok to eat?

Talc is an ingredient in TUMS? This
says the talc is "different", or it's not talc at all that's harmful, depending on how you read it. But people are told to use cornstarch and not baby powder because of inhaling the talc, and women shouldn't use it around their nether regions, as per this contrary article.
Does this make sense to anyone? I avoid baby powder, but I don't know what I'd do without my TUMS.
