Estrogenic componds in hair care products:carginogenic?

Recently WAMO news anchor and New Pittsburgh Courier freelance
Writer Allegra Battle did a story on this same subject and it was a feature
On the May 9, 5 p.m. KDKA news. But at the end of these stories we still
Did not have a list of the products. Battle gave me the list that didn't
Make her feature during a recent visit I made to the WAMO studio's
Promoting the Pittsburgh Race for the Cure. So many of my friends have seen
The stories on television or read about this issue in the paper and they
Want to know which products to be concerned about.
However I wanted to give you more so I went to the Internet and looked for articles from the Center for Environmental Oncology and found one entitled: Why Healthy People Get Cancer: Center Examines Environmental Suspects (update Spring 2005).
The article stated, one of immediate research priorities of the new
Center is the puzzling phenomenon of breast cancer in African-Americans
Under the age of 40, who have nearly twice as much breast cancer as do white
Women.
The center will work with Silent Spring Institute, a Massachusetts based cancer institute, to identify suspect contaminants and ingredients in hair care products and other personal products regularly used by African-American young women and their mothers.
More recently, attention has turned to estrogenic compounds in hair
Care products used by Black women as a possible explanation for higher
Cancer rates in this population. I've started to carry copies of the list in
My purse but we're going to share it with you right here. The list
Simply says: The following is a list of products that have previously been
Found to contain hormones:
Placenta Shampoo
Queen Helene Placenta cream hair conditioner
Placenta revitalizing shampoo
Perm Repair with placenta
Proline Perm Repair with placenta
Hormone hair food Jojoba oil
Triple action super grow
Supreme Vita-Gro
Luster's Sur Glo Hormone
B & B Super Gro
Lekair natural Super Glo
Lekair Hormone hair treatment with Vitamin E
Isoplus Hormone hair treatment wit Quinine
Fermodyl with Placenta hair conditioner
Supreme Vita-Gro with allantoin and estrogen plus TEA-COCO>
Hask Placenta Hair conditioner
Nu Skin body smoother
Nu Skin Enhancer
The majority of these products contain placental extract, placenta, hormones or estrogen. As early as 1983 Dr. Devra Davis (epidemiologist and director of the Center for Environmental oncology, part of the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute) and co-researcher Leon Bradlow advanced the theory that xenoestrogens, synthetic estrogen imitators, were a possible cause of breast cancer.
Davis also says, "most cases of breast cancer are not born, but made And the more hormones a woman is exposed to in her lifetime, the greater Her risk of breast cancer."
We need to be more cautious of the products that we use on our hair
And our bodies and demand that more information about our health is
Shared.
Ladies and gentlemen beware.

I have driven to three stores today looking for Ampro's Nature/Growth Hair & Scalp Treatment and have found the shelves bare. It also has estrogenic hormones and it's awfully convenient that I couldn't find it today. But that seemed like the draw, having hormones in it. I mean, our bodies produce extra hormones when we're pregnant, I had great hair during both pregnancies and it seemed logical that this would help. It seemed to work alright for my hair. But, since it seems to be discontinued, is there anything you recommend to replace these?
