Alarming Link Found Between Hair Dyes, Straighteners, And Breast Cancer

2019-12-05 00:55:16

If you’re a woman, regularly coloring or straightening your hair might come with a hidden risk. A new study has found a link between using permanent hair dye and straightening products and an increased risk of breast cancer in women. Researchers from the National Institutes of Health say black women are at a particularly high risk. According to Gizmodo, women who reported regularly using permanent hair dyes were 9% more likely than women who didn’t use hair dye to develop breast cancer. According to Gizmodo, those who used straighteners were 18% more likely to develop breast cancer. That increased risk shot up to 30% for women who used straighteners every five to eight weeks. Hair dyes are thought to contain some 5,000 different chemicals, some of which are known to be carcinogenic in isolation.
