Use Of Hair Relaxers And Dyes Increases Risk Of Breast Cancer - New Study Reveals
Breast cancer is cancer that forms in the cells of the breasts with symptoms including lump in the breast, bloody discharge from the nipple and changes in the shape or texture of the nipple or breast.
Breast cancer can occur in both men and women though its chances in men is rare. In fact, a report stated that it occurs to 1 in 8 women during their lifetime.

Before now, breast cancer used to be common amongst white women. Today, breast cancer rates among black and white women are similar. 
However, according to the authors of a new study, 'Black women are more likely to be diagnosed with aggressive tumor subtypes and to die after a breast cancer diagnosis.'

A recent study released by the International Journal of Cancer further revealed that women who regularly use permanent hair dye and hair relaxers are more likely to develop breast cancer than women who didn’t use hair dye.

The information was made available by Alexandra White, Ph.D., head of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences Environment and Cancer Epidemiology Group and senior author of the study, via her Twitter handle.

According to the study, "Many hair products contain endocrine-disrupting compounds and carcinogens potentially relevant to breast cancer. Products used predominately by black women may contain more hormonally-active compounds."
