Eeek! Another Gray Hair?

Issue #46                                                               November 2014

Those unruly silver strands stand straight up at attention with a whole different attitude than the rest of our hairs!  No one is ever ready to find that first strand, and the reactions range from surprise to sheer horror!
"I'm way too young for this!"

"I don't want to get old!"

"I'm going to be totally gray by the time I'm 30 (40, 50 or 60, etc.) !"

Sound familiar? And after you find that first rascal, what do you do next? Reach for a bottle of hair dye? Wait a second! Get the facts first! Here are a few from The National Cancer Institute:
  • Over 5,000 different chemicals are used in hair dye products, some of which are reported to be carcinogenic (cancer-causing) in animals (12).
  • Early hair dye formulations contained chemicals, including aromatic amines that were found to cause cancer in animals. In the mid- to late 1970s, however, manufacturers changed the components in dye products to eliminate some of these chemicals (1, 2, 3). It is not known whether some of the chemicals still used in hair dyes can cause cancer.
  • Given the widespread use of hair dye products, even a small increase in risk may have a considerable public health impact (2).
  • Over the years, some epidemiologic (population) studies have found an increased risk of bladder cancer in hairdressers and barbers (14).
  • A 2008 report of the Working Group of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) concluded that some of the chemicals these workers are exposed to occupationally are “probably carcinogenic to humans” (5).
  • Although some studies have linked the personal use of hair dyes with increased risks of certain cancers of the blood and bone marrow, such as non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) and leukemia, other studies have not shown such links.
  • Studies of breast and bladder cancer have also produced conflicting results.
  • Relatively few studies have been published about the association of hair dye use with the risk of other cancers (3).
  • Based on its review of the evidence, IARC concluded that personal use of hair dyes is “not classifiable as to its carcinogenicity to humans” (5).
This is just one set of facts, and there are thousands on the internet-- be sure to search Scholarly articles as well! But, with the level of doubt in the last bullet item, do you really want to risk your health in order to lose that "silver crown?"

Why not try a natural approach instead, and I don't mean natural hair dyes either... it all starts with nutrition! Aging is accelerated when proper nutrition is lacking, and getting proper nutrition is very difficult given the depletion of soils and mineral content in the foods we eat-- EVEN IF WE EAT ALL ORGANIC, NON-GMO, WHOLE FOODS!
