Previous lawsuits have been filed for breast cancer risk from hair products, alleging that endocrine disrupting chemicals in hair products were to blame for breast cancer diagnoses.
The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), a division of the National Institutes of Health, conducted the “Sister Study“. This study aimed to identify certain risk factors for cancer in women, considering that the women in the study had sisters who were diagnosed with breast cancer.
Using this study, researchers found new evidence that regular and prolonged exposure to hair straighteners may increase the risk for developing uterine cancer.
The research team published their findings in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute: Use of Straighteners and Other Hair Products and Incident Uterine Cancer.
The study concluded that women who use chemical hair straighteners were at twice the risk for developing uterine cancer than women who did not use the hair products:
Other research studies published in major scientific journals have highlighted the fact that many women developed cancer after using certain hair products.
Also drawing from the Sister Study, NIEHS researchers published a study titled “Use of Hair Products in Relation to Ovarian Cancer Risk” in 2021.
Featuring 40,559 participants, the study found the following:
Another study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute in October 2022 looks particularly at chemical hair straighteners.
The study, “Chemical Relaxers and Hair-Straightening Products: Potential Targets for Hormone-Related Cancer Prevention and Control“, found that risks for uterine cancer, endometrial cancer, and other hormone-related cancers were elevated in women who used hair straightener products:
Research studies into health disparities between people of color and white Americans have found some shocking evidence that black women are more likely to be diagnosed and die from uterine cancer than white women.
The Endometrial Cancer Action Network for African Americans (ECANA) found that African American women have a 55% higher mortality rate from uterine cancer than white women.
According to ECANA, black women often experience delays in diagnosis and care for endometrial cancer, which puts them at a greater risk for succumbing to the disease.
Hair relaxer products are predominately used by women of color compared to white women, and black women commonly begin use of the hair products at a young age. These factors have led researchers to study the topic more thoroughly and see whether endocrine disrupting chemicals in some hair products could be to blame for higher rates of endometrial and uterine cancer suffered by African American women.
If you or a loved one used chemical hair straighteners and developed uterine cancer, breast cancer, uterine fibroids, or other health problems, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit.
Prolonged exposure to and frequent use of chemical hair straighteners has been linked to an increased risk of uterine cancer, breast cancer, endometrial cancer, uterine fibroids, and other serious health problems.
Chemical hair straighteners may contain dangerous additives, including a very toxic chemical called DEHP. These chemicals increase the risk for developing uterine cancer, breast cancer, and other serious health problems.
