Dr. Campbell: Hair dyes may be linked to increased breast cancer risk
Hair dye cancer risk
Regular use of hair dye could increase cancer risk
Regular use of hair dye could increase your chance of getting cancer, scientists have warned.
Women who use hair dye more than nine times a year increase their chance of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia by up to 60% and those who used hair dye before 1980, when it included more toxic ingredients, have a 70% higher chance of developing the disease.
The bad news continues: women who use dark hair dye may also be at risk of the non-aggressive blood cancer, follicular lymphoma.
The research, which spanned several countries, looked at four separate studies undertaken between 1988 and 2003. All those polled, of which 4,461 had follicular lymphoma and 5,799 did not, were asked detailed questions about their hair dye use.
However, although Dr Zhang of Yale School of Public Health, who led the survey, said this latest study proved a link between cancer and hair dye, another recent study, from the International Agency for Research on Cancer, said there is still not enough evidence to prove inconclusively that personal use of hair dye increases the risk of cancer.
For some time now links between hair dyes and cancer have been known.
Meanwhile, Jamie Page, chief executive of the Cancer Prevention & Education Society, tells the Daily Mail: ‘For some time now links between hair dyes and cancer have been known.
‘It is important that people are aware that many chemicals in consumer products have not been adequately tested for safety.
