Disconcerting information about uterine cancer – a rare type of cancer, has resurfaced in the news recently. A study from the National Institutes of Health revealed that women who use hair straightening products at least 4 times a year are twice as likely to develop uterine cancer.
And, Black Women are at a higher risk. Below are some key points listed in the article. Use the source links in this post to get a detailed description of the study.
Uterine cancer is the sixth most commonly diagnosed cancer in women around the world.
A new study from the National Institutes of Health has found that women who use hair straightening products are twice as likely to develop uterine cancer than those who do not.
The information is both important and disturbing. After reading the articles, you may want to consult your care providers for more information and recommendations specific to your personal circumstances. One question, which comes to mind is does the study indicate that other types of cancer may also be attributed to hair straighteners?
As some of you already know, sunscreen should be worn all year long and even on cloudy days.
In my neck of the woods most of us are paying attention to sunscreen when beach weather is upon us. However, it is important to know the guidelines for purchasing sunscreen in order to protect your skin properly.

Recently my thoughts and talk are focused toward living with a more informed knowledge base about essential oils, which is different from looking at the bottle and sniffing the scent. There is so much more to know about these gifts to us from the planet. Sustainability awareness is also important when we use these gifts for enhancing our Well-being and Wellness regimen.
In upcoming segments on my Wellness Connections Podcast, as well as, in this blog I will share new ideas that I am exploring in learning about the safe and best methods to use essential oils. This includes websites, blogs, and books. For this month’s contribution, I’d like to introduce you to the recent book by Jade Shutes, “The Carrier Oil Palette”. I like to describe her as a Wellness polymath.
Listen to a brief description on my podcast why this carrier oils book is important for essential oil users.
Do you know where Carrier Oils come from?
As a Level 1 NAHA Certified Aromatherapist/Trainer, I have come to understand that what I contribute is a knowledge base providing methods, which can be used to enhance the proper use of essential oils.

I am struck so much by the unfortunate display of sadness about the alopecia conversation. I started the HairBlues.me blog 10 years ago, and still, after all this time, women, and I might add, men, and children continue to be troubled by this condition. That’s why the Alopecia industry is such a big industry: wigs, solutions, and potions that promise delivery of new locks. When you find a moment, listen to my brief podcast about this challenge.
We can get to the moon, but we have not solved this problem yet – unless we accept that “beauty” comes in all forms. The sooner we get in touch with that the sooner we will not find ourselves witnessing painful incidents of what is pre-determined as “beauty” by how one’s hair grows and looks.
