Scriptures for meditation:

3 John 2
King James Version
2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

Hosea 4:6

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.

Matthew 10:16

New Living Translation
*“Look,* I am sending you out as sheep among wolves. So be as shrewd as snakes and harmless as doves

1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
19 Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own,

20 You were bought with a price [purchased with a [a]preciousness and paid for, made His own]. So then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body.

Luke 12:7
7 Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

1 Peter 3:3-6
3 Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes.
4 Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.
5 For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to adorn themselves. They submitted themselves to their own husbands,
6 like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her lord. You are her daughters if you do what is right and do not give way to fear.

1 Timothy 2:9-10
9 I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes,
10 but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.

Relaxer reckoning and Product recalls of soft drinks containing cancerous dyes linked with cancer

Friends, considering the nature of our job, we receive countless prayer requests from around the world from both old and young on the plague of cancer in our world today. You are prompted to ask questions with the intent of getting into root causes. Prayers should start , continue and be sustained by exploring root causes to avoid repeating the same mistakes. Looking into the larger world and from various medical research, we have come to the conclusion that most of our health related issues are not far fetched from what we apply on our bodies and what we ingest into our bodies. There are certain prayers that could be avoided ab initio if we will be as wise as serpents and as gentle as doves concerning the deceitfulness in our world. Working from the position of a wise servant that is well informed and deploying that knowledge in practical living.  To be forewarned is to be forearmed. So, be careful as you read through these two reports for knowledge and application where necessary.

Good morning. Today, Linda Villarosa uncovers a health threat for many Black women.

Relaxer reckoning

By Linda Villarosa – Contributing magazine writer

Relationship between Health and Wealth - Health is wealth - Take care of your health today beginning with investigating the cosmetics you apply to your hair! See report

A vast majority of Black women — approaching 90 percent — have used a chemical hair relaxer to straighten their natural curls. Some use it every other month, beginning in childhood.

But these products, applied in salons or at home, disrupt the endocrine system, according to a growing body of evidence. They’re linked to early puberty and many reproductive health issues that can follow: uterine fibroids, preterm birth, infertility and cancers (breast, ovarian and uterine), many of which disproportionately affect Black women. The products, which aggressively target Black girls and women who believe these chemicals are safe, have almost no oversight.

I began reporting a story about “creamy crack,” as chemical hair straightener products are sometimes called, for The Times Magazine more than a year ago, and it published today. At every stage, I was surprised by what I learned. I interviewed government officials and health nonprofit workers, scientists at universities, people taking part in medical studies, plaintiffs in lawsuits, politicians, historians, activists and lawyers.

I spoke with Jenny Mitchell, now 34, who had used hair relaxers nearly all her life. She’d always wanted to have children, and in 2018 she visited a fertility specialist. But what Mitchell thought would be a happy new beginning led to heart-stopping news. “During the ultrasound, the physician said, ‘I see something; I think we need to do a biopsy right now,’” she recalls. “He did a biopsy that day, and then three days later, I got a call saying that I had uterine cancer.” To preserve her life, doctors removed her uterus and then gave her chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Mitchell could no longer have children.

The new research

Black female epidemiologists raised many of the questions that propelled the new research. All told me that their personal experience drove them to pursue the connection between the chemicals in these products and the racial disparities in reproductive health that scientists have struggled to explain for decades. Tamarra James-Todd, a public health professor at Harvard, is their pioneer. James-Todd recalled sitting in a salon as a kid and having relaxers applied to her hair. It felt as if her scalp were on fire. She told me that she now knows her instinct was right: The product being put on her head wasn’t safe.

A seminal 2022 study followed nearly 34,000 women for over a decade. It found that those who frequently used chemical hair-straightening products were more than twice as likely to develop uterine cancer as those who did not. That’s the most common cancer of the female reproductive system, and the most aggressive sub­types have been on the rise for nearly 24 years — particularly among Black women.

The United States is unusually lax about these problems. While the European Union regulates more than 1,300 ingredients for use in cosmetics, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration restricts only nine. Hair relaxers marketed to children, which are packaged with bright colors and photos of adorable little girls, contain high levels of five of the chemicals prohibited in Europe, according to one study. Another found that hormone-disrupting chemicals were in plenty of creams — but not listed as ingredients on the packaging. In October, the F.D.A. finally proposed banning formaldehyde (a toxic preservative) in hair relaxers. It has not set a date to implement the rule.

Plaintiffs have filed thousands of lawsuits since the 2022 study came out. A federal judge has combined them into one big suit. But while Black women have embraced natural styles in recent years (total sales to salons and other hair professionals fell to $30 million, down by half, from 2011 to 2021), these products are still in wide circulation. They fuel a continuing — but preventable — public health crisis.
