Hair Dye Linked to Rheumatoid Arthritis

Use of hair dyes for more than 20 years was identified as one of the co-factors leading to a doubling of risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis, according to a study conducted by Linkoping University in Sweden. Rheumatoid arthritis occurs when your immune system attacks your joints, causing swelling and tissue damage. The cause of rheumatoid arthritis is unclear, although some think viral infection, poor lifestyle and dietary habits, or genetic predisposition are possible contributors.

It now appears that environmental chemicals and other pollutants should also be considered. The application of a chemical to any part of your body represents a potential health risk. So why not enjoy the natural color of your hair? You'll be healthier for it!
