Allentown, Pennsylvania, United States - 01-16-2023 (PR Distribution™) -
Medical studies show women who frequently use chemical hair straighteners, also called hair relaxers, have an increased risk of developing uterine, ovarian, and breast cancers. There may be thousands of cancer cases related to chemical hair straighteners. These products are popular among African American women, so they’re disproportionately affected by these toxic products.
They use potentially cancer-causing chemical solutions to dissolve protein bonds in the hair, changing its structure, “relaxing” curls and straightening hair. Chemicals may enter the body through chemical burns on the scalp.
Medical Research Shows the Harm Chemical Hair Relaxers Can Cause
Medical studies show frequent use of these products increases the risk of developing uterine, ovarian, and breast cancers. These three cancers kill about 68,610 Americans a year, according to the National Cancer Institute.
Research announced by the National Institutes of Health in October found that women involved in a study who stated they used chemical straighteners often (more than four times in the prior year) were nearly three times more likely to develop uterine cancer than those not using the products.
While 1.64% of the 33,497 women involved in the research who never used this product developed uterine cancer, 4.05% of frequent users developed the condition over 11 years.
Chemical hair straightener use also increases the risk of developing ovarian cancer, according to research published in 2021 in the Carcinogenesis journal. Researchers followed 40,559 women for ten years, and 241 were diagnosed with ovarian cancer.
Those who used the product frequently (more than four times during the previous year) had a greater chance of developing the disease. Dr. Lott stated the study reported, “(F)requent use…of straighteners was strongly associated with ovarian cancer, compared to never use.”
Another 2021 study in the Carcinogenesis journal stated Black women using lye-based hair straighteners at least seven times a year for more than 15 years had about a 30% greater risk of breast cancer than those using it less frequently.
Women Burdened By Cancer Caused by Chemical Hair Straighteners Will Want Justice
Potentially thousands of women developed cancer because of chemical hair straighteners. Pending lawsuits by cancer survivors who used chemical hair straighteners seek compensation for what they suffered, according to Reuters.
