New Brunswick to stop using pesticide in honey blonde hair colors

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) New Brunswick will stop using a pesticide that’s been linked to cancer in the state’s honey blonde population, and the city’s hair care industry will be forced to make changes, a state official said.

The move comes amid a spike in the number of honey blonde deaths in New Jersey.

Last year, the state reported that more than 1,500 people died of the disease in the New Jersey City area.

In a statement Friday, New Brunswick Mayor Brian Walsh said the city will stop all use of pesticides in the city and the state is “committed to ensuring the health and well-being of our residents.”

The state said it was “aware of a report of a honey blonde case in New Brunswick.”

The governor’s office said he has ordered the state to look into the issue.

The state Health Department said in a statement that a state report on the use of the pesticide “has been made available to the state health department and to state officials.”

The department did not provide further details.

A New Brunswick Department of Health spokeswoman said the state would not release the state report until it was reviewed by the department’s environmental health division.

The announcement follows reports that New Brunswick had banned the use and marketing of the insecticide, known as neonicotinoids, in some locales in January.

The New Brunswick announcement came after a federal judge blocked the state from implementing its ban.

The state’s attorney general’s office had asked a federal appeals court to strike down the state ban.

In the wake of the ban, several cities in New York and California have banned the neonic-based pesticides, while some states, including New Jersey, have banned their use.
