The relaxers used seven or more times a year over a 20 year period or longer had the same risk as women, the chemicals are used for less than a year, researchers say. – This is good news, said lead study investigator, Lynn Rosenberg, professor of epidemiology at Boston University School of Public Health. The present study may be definitely that hair relaxers do not cause breast cancer, as much as an epidemiological study. .. In the May Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention issue, found researchers from Boston University and Howard University Cancer Center used no increase in breast cancer risk due to the type of hair relaxer or the frequency and duration of use.
The researchers found that younger women used hair relaxers more than older women did. They also discovered that the majority of women use hair relaxers before the age of 20 and one-third the chemicals used at least seven times a year. But when they examined the relationship between use of hair relaxers and breast cancer, on 574 on 574 newly diagnosed cases of breast cancer during the follow-up period, They found no association between the use of relaxers and breast cancer incidence overall or among the younger women, even if the use was frequent and of long duration.
