Black Hair Care Product Warning

Just found out that some of the stuff we are rubbing on our scalps could be killing us. This includes relaxers, conditioners and sheen products. Many of these contain estrogen like hormones which are linked to breast cancer. The rate of young (under 40) African American women being diagnosed with breast cancer is rapidly increasing, so arm yourself with this information and pass it on to your friends and family. Read those labels! This information is tied to research coming out the the University of Pittsburgh's Center for Environmental Oncology, founded by Dr. Devra Davis.
