Research and the Impact of Chemicals on Black Women's Hair

Recently, a long-time friend of mine, shared the quote below with me on Facebook.  Question of the day: Based on this quote, do you think research should be done to find out the impact of chemicals (perms and other products) on black women's hair, scalp and beyond?

"Black hair care manufacturers have turned the black hair care industry into a chemical wastedump. Who Cares!? Not one piece of research have (sic) gone on in America, where we have gone to the moon and walked on the moon, when our scientists have not even walked on a black woman's head!" - Dr. Willie Morrow, self proclaimed creator of the jeri curl.

Check out the film below for further insight.  I am very curious to hear your thoughts about this.
