Permanent hair dyes and relaxers associated with breast cancer risk

Permanent hair dye chemical hair straightening could increase risk of breast cancer study finds

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) indicates that it does not have reliable evidence of a link between modern hair dyes and cancer.

According to a new study, permanent hair dye and products used to straighten hair may be linked to increased breast cancer risk in women.

"Women who have used such products in the past should not be concerned about their risks", he added.

The study was funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. Researchers used data from almost 47,000 women over several years. Black women who dyed their hair every five to eight weeks had a 60% higher risk for breast cancer.

According to PCPC, in the study, numerous associations linking hair dyes/straighteners and breast cancer are not statistically significant; furthermore, the association reported for current use of permanent hair dye and breast cancer are not seen when past use of hair dye is taken into account.

Researchers analysed answers to questions regarding the women's health, lifestyle and demographics and found that women who regularly used permanent hair dye in the year prior to enrolling in the study were 9% more likely to develop breast cancer than women who didn't use hair dye.

Researchers found that women who used permanent hair dye or chemical straighteners were at higher risk of developing breast cancer.

Over two million women worldwide are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. A new study suggests they could.

Researchers say that more research needs to be done.

The study was published in the International Journal of Cancer.

When it came to chemical straighteners, risk didn't vary by race.

Breast cancer is a major cause of cancer-related deaths among women.

"Sometimes science just can not give us the answers that we want it to give us", says Brawley. When the study is compared with white women, it showed that white women did not have such type of risk.

There are other cancer risks women can control, Brawley said, and they're more strongly supported by research. "However, as the article readily admits, more study is necessary".

She says, "People should use the mildest form of the chemicals, you should get your chemicals done professionally and one time and try to use the most natural thing you can find".

Researchers found these women had a greater chance of being among the almost 2,800 study participants who ended up developing breast cancer-especially Black women.
