Permanent hair dyes are used by about one third of adult American women.
Several epidemiologic studies associate hair dye use with increased risk of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and multiple myeloma.
In one study, risk increased with more prolonged exposure to darker, more concentrated, permanent dyes.
The purpose of our study was to examine the relationship between hair dye use and development of certain cancers associated with hair dye use in previous studies.
We examined prospectively the relationship between the use of permanent hair dyes and selected fatal cancers in 573369 women.
