Do you ever think about how long you'll wear a hair piece for?

I agree but that's the point I'm making if you go down the path of 'this might be dangerous but we simply don't know' how many other things will you do everyday that will in the future be found to increase things like cancers.

I'm intrigued, is there a certain attachment that is the safest (clips aside) unless that's what you meant and that's what you use.
Who said might be? The chemicals leaching into our bodies absolutely is harmful. Whether or not it's enough to progresses to cancer or death...is what's possible...

Some food for thought. BPA a in plastic bottles has been a major issue, and is a selling point on many products that are PB free. If you agree with the science that PBA leaches into the water, what makes you think the glue and Poly are not leaching chemicals into your bloodstream , through your dermis?
My first thought when beginning all this. Ruled out plastic bases right away. Can't mess with my hormones and become even more beeta.

Ghostbond. Water based adhesives that contain nothing more than polyacrylate and water.

You said and 'as many issues as it can potentially cause' - this is what I'm trying to say. If you think it might cause something then where do you draw the line? as practically everything you do on a daily basis may potentially cause problems in the future.

Would you say they are safer than tapes?

What is safer than tapes? White bond, yes. Acrylic and silicone no.

I'm sure you can tell, my position is not to tell people not to wear and to hide in a safe house. However, what strikes me is when people say "oh it's safe, if not we'd know by now." That is just a foolish and ignorant statement and could not be further from reality.

I'm wearing, and I repeatedly say that to show I'm not pointing the finger, saying.. people that wear shouldn't....I'm doing the same thing. However, to deny reality, is what I take issue with.

To say everything we do on a basis could cause harm is a silly statement. Driving a vehicle can lead to death however you mitigate by wearing a seat belt and following traffic laws. Unless I'm misunderstanding you I feel like you're saying go out and drive as recklessly as you want because something's going to get you one way or the other. That I don't agree with.

I advocate for white glue although I don't use it. It does not work with my particular chemistry which is unfortunate.
I agree there's many harmful things out there but you should always pick the least harmful option

Because tapes don't even list the ingredients they are made of, it's hard to tell. Tape material itself is plastic though which can be estrogenic. With the same idea I ruled out plastic bases, I ruled out using tape. Although, lace probably isn't a natural substance either, probably polyester or something? It's still more similar to clothe than obvious plastic. Also a lot less surface.

No I didn't mean that but i won't repeat myself and fill the forum up. Thanks for the info on tape's. I might try ghostbond. I actually didn't know that people might use glue all over. I used tape for convenience but i'll give ghostbond a go and see what its like.

Trying to source some in Europe, i looked at Ghostbond UK, its part of the Prohair Labs range - would people say this is a reputable supplier?, I'm just trying to avoid any fakes.

thanks.
