From Sunday Morning, 9:53 am on 12 July 2020

A scientific study of more than 45,000 women has found a link between permanent hair dye and an increased risk of breast cancer. The American study, which was published in the International Journal of Cancer, also found the risk was significantly higher for women of colour, but the exact reasons are not yet clear. Cancer epidemiologist Diana Sarfati from the Cancer Control Agency joins the show to discuss the study's findings.
