Using hair dye may increase the risk of a type of cancer known as lymphoma, a European study shows.
Dr. Silvia de Sanjose of the Catalan Institute of Oncology in Barcelona and colleagues published in the American Journal of Epidemiology.
The researchers found an overall 19 percent increased risk of lymphoma among people who reported coloring their hair. The increased risk was 26 percent among those who used hair dye 12 or more times a year.
People who began coloring their hair before 1980 showed a 37 percent increased lymphoma risk, while those who had only dyed their hair before 1980, but not afterwards, showed a 62 percent increased risk.
Based on the findings, de Sanjose and her team calculate that roughly 10 percent of lymphomas in women could be due to the use of hair dye.

Dr. Keith and Laurie Nemec’s comments on studies supports hair dye lymphoma link.
In this study published by the American Journal of Epidemiology, it showed that researchers found an overall 19% risk of lymphoma among people who reported coloring their hair. The increased risk was 26% among those who used hair dye 12 times or more a year. People who began coloring their hair before 1980 showed a 37% increase lymphoma risk. The summary of the report showed roughly 10% of lymphomas in women could be due to the use of hair dyes. Now what we want to state in this is very simply, not to just pin point one thing in a disease, but all the things that link to disease, in this we want to state chemicals and toxins entering the system. Now these chemicals and toxins are of course entering through the hair follicles. They can be entering through chemicals in the food, in the water, in the air, as we stated it could be pesticides. Any chemical or toxin entering the system is going to weaken the immune system and increase the risk of cancer and all diseases. So the answer is, the Seven Basic Steps to Total Health™, as detailed below:
- Air – you are not deep diaphragm breathing to oxygenate your body.
- Water – you are not drinking 32 ounces of distilled water per 50/lbs per body weight per day.
- Food – you are not consuming a diet of living/raw plant food which has the highest energy, bioelectricity, enzymes and bioavailable nutrient content to either maintain or restore your health.
- Sleep – you are not sleeping 9.5 hours with 3.5 of them before midnight.
- Exercise – you are not exercising 30 minutes every day.
- Fasting – you are not fasting from the normal Standard American Diet (SAD).
- Prayer – you are taking the time throughout your day to regularly still your mind so you can hear the voice of God spoken into your heart.
When we live the 7 Basic Steps to Total Health day in and day out and we actively or proactively avoid chemical intake into our body through air, food, water and things that contact our skin and hair, remember anything that is on your skin within 30 seconds is in your blood stream. So anything you put on your scalp, your hair, your skin, lotions, chemicals of any type can increase the risk of disease. Your general rule is this, if it goes on your skin you should be able to eat it, because it is entering into the blood and into the cells anyway, so if we live by this general rule, if we eat organic fruits and vegetables, if we’re eating plant based diets, if all of our materials are organic we decrease all the chemical intake from those sources. If our water is distilled, water that has been post carbon filtered, we reverse all chemical intake from that source, and lastly is our air. We cannot decrease the chemical content in the air in the cities we live in, in a short period of time, but what we can do is put air purification units in our homes to make that air as pure as possible.
