May 2007 - No Link with Breast Cancer
No link has been found between chemicals used to relax hair and the incidence of breast cancer. An epidemiological study has been carried out using a sample of nearly 50,000 African-American women. It was found that there was no difference in the incidence of breast cancer in those women who used relaxers up to seven or more times per year over a twenty year period, and those who didn't.

The study came about because there is currently a higher incidence of breast cancer in African-American women aged under 40 than in their Caucasian counterparts, and hair relaxers are more frequently used by African-American women. However, there could be many other reasons for the difference in the incidence of breast cancer, eg diet, so further research is needed.
