It looks like black women in America are being screwed all the way around. Not only are black women at higher risk for aggressive breast tumors. You see, According to a US study, black women as compared to women of other races are three times more likely to develop aggressive breast cancer. With the highest rate of cancer in the world, black women in the USA have a lower overall rate of breast cancer than white women. However, when they do get it, it is often in the more advanced stage when diagnosed, and more likely to return after treatment, with a less favorable outcome. There is more, now there is a National study on why black women are balding. Get this, black women are finding themselves having Alopecia , which is the complete or partial loss of hair at an early age. OK, just in case you don't know, Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia (CCC Alopecia) is the most common type of scarring alopecia found in African-American women that usually begins at the central scalp, gets increasingly worse and is ultimately permanent. Early research indicates that an estimated 15 to 19 percent of all African-American women in the U.S. - more than 36.6 million women have a history of hair loss, and more than half (51 percent) are concerned with thinning hair/hair loss as a top hair care problem. More HERE AAPP says: I know a lot of women who are wearing all sorts of hair weaves to deny the problem. People suffering from hair loss should stop putting all that weave glue in there hair and go more natural. Black woman (not all black women) should stop all this hair weave thing, and go natural. Stop making excuses! Stop trying to catch a man or trying to be a fake Beyonce in a weave. Catching a man at this point may cause you to catch something else as well. The unspoken truth is, Black men are the leading cause of death for black women. Oh, that was not politically correct to point out, right? let's talk tonight!
