Cancer-causing hair dye??!!
For many years’ generations upon generations of women, particularly African-American women have used chemicals to straighten their hair, and permanent hair dyes to cover up grays. To many women this was a religious-like tradition, going to the salon at least once a month for a touch-up. But I bet we could have never imagined just how true the phrase ‘pain is beauty’ really is.
Recently The National Institute of Health reported Wednesday that women who use these chemicals face a higher risk of developing breast cancer than those who do not.
That’s right, breast cancer…
“Researchers have been studying the possible link between hair dye and cancer for a long time, but results have been inconsistent,” said Alexandra White, corresponding author and head of the NIEHS Environment and Cancer Epidemiology Group. “In our study, we see a higher breast cancer risk associated with hair dye use, and the effect is stronger in African American women, particularly those who are frequent users.”
White women who dyed their hair with permanent dyes every five to eight weeks had an 8% increased risk, but African American women with those same habits had a 60% higher risk of breast cancer.
Wow, so that was a lot… Are you confused, because I know I was?
Upon reading this information I had so many questions; how can I reduce my risk of developing breast cancer? The only answer was to stop using these chemicals which seems simple enough. What other options are you left with? The good news is, that temporary hair color is safe to use.
