MDLinxThe Link Between Hair Straighteners and Uterine Cancer

According to earlier studies, the usage of some hair products, such as relaxers and pressing products, may raise the risk of ovarian cancer. The usage of hair straighteners may now also be related to uterine cancer, according to a recent study. The CDC lists using birth control pills, working out frequently, maintaining a healthy weight, and taking progesterone as required as factors that lower the risk of uterine cancer.
