Hair dyes and contraception used by millions of women are linked to chemicals that can cause breast cancer:

Women who have dyed their hair or use hormonal contraception are at risk of breast cancer, scientists warn.

Changing the colour of locks has previously been linked to the disease, but a new study backs up the evidence.

Being exposed to carcinogenics in the dyes was linked to a 23 per cent chance of getting breast cancer. 

Users of birth control methods such as the combined Pill and IUS coils could also face the same plight.

Post-menopausal women fitted with the latter have a 52 per cent greater chance of developing breast cancer.

And there is a 32 per cent increased risk for those who use the former hormonal-based contraceptive, Finnish researchers claim.
