Ummm but let's not start a panic on something that has not been proven .. or even brought to public attention.
If some BHMers got headaches, lesions and TUMOURS? Where is this actually documented? What team of doctors researched and diagnosed this? How come this has not come to the attention of the FDA and they have initiated an investigation on this glue, pulled it from the market, (a recall) with means a major loss of revenue and the list goes on and on. There would be reprocussions to the entire (adhesive) industry if even ONE of the products is causing this kind of problem. People would lose money and that's always big news.
I don't care how many people are buying more glues .. the government is not gonna let manufacters just let anything into the American market. Do you know how long it takes the FDA to approve products? Years and years. Let's get real folks.
Again, men have been and are still wearing these units for the past 200 years. How come only BHMer are the ones getting lesions and (OMG!) TUMOURS? Really? etc specifically from the glue ... that suddenly 'disappear' when they stop using the glues? A tumour ... dissappears
? That would be interesting.
How is it even proven that it is the glues that are causing the tumour?
Come on now. And WHICH GLUE in particular because I know a guy that works at the FDA in Silver Springs, Maryland so I could certainly give him an 'heads up' on a dangerous product on the market. Just let me know.
I think that YES, some people have a reaction to certain adhesives .. that is clear. You might start itching (this happens to me with a certain glue) or you will get little bumps on your skin and when you stop using it .. the little bumps and the itching go away. That would constitute an allergic reaction but even if there was no warning on the packaging ... this would be a reasonable expectation to me. It's about your body chemistry. So then just try another brand - there are a ton of brands to try.
Geesh, all the zillions of people all around the world wearing tuppees and LF wigs but .. no one is aware that a particular glue (again.. which one?) is causing harm specifically to BHMers? How come none of those BHMer went public?
Nooooo and I think is hugely irresponsible to start such rumours on a forum like this .. when there is no proof. It just sounds like a scare tactic.
