Do You Need Hair? Thanks to The Japanese There is Now Hope






I see this story as a health story since this blog tends to not publish pigs with hair just to show how diverse nature could be. The hair on the above pictured pig was grown by Japanese scientists. Since adamfoxie🦊 has an audience of about 54% men, the rest being women but propecia is usually a problem for men even though I don't see why women with loosing hair can't take advantage of this discovery. This is why is a health story because I have so many men of which a proportion whould be bald or balding and most men think that loosing their hair makes them look older or not as healthy (all baloney of coarse) Now, before you start throwing away all those baseball caps that boldly advertises to everyone you are bald, even men with hair are assumed bald if they wear one (exception: Actual baseball players).
Yes there is a catch, isn't there always? The catch is as long as there are no unexpected problems for this new discovery to come to market, you need to have at least 10 years of life. If you are 90 you should be happy with being 90 but if you are 50, imagine! You could get sexy all over at 60.  Be careful though because some men and women preffer a bald man which in case you can grow it to make a profile pic at FaceBook and then let then shave it all off. And get your sexy (not) cap out of the closet.  Adam Gonzalez, Publisher🦊 (Any complaints or thoughts you can direct them to me and not the Japanese).

The study used two kinds of cells placed in silicone containers to cultivate “hair follicle germs” — the sources of the tiny organs that grow and sustain hair.

Led by professor Junji Fukuda at Yokohama National University, the team managed to cultivate 5,000 within just a few days, enough to replenish hair.
The method is a massive step up from existing laborious techniques that can create just 50 or so “germs” at once.
While human tests might not be in the cards for another five years, ultimately researchers believe the technique could be used to generate luscious new locks.
The technology could also help cancer patients and others with medical conditions that cause hair loss, said Fukuda, whose research was published in the journal Biomaterials.
“Beauty clinics currently often use hair from the occipital region (back of the head) and plant them to frontal areas with hair loss. A problem with this is that it doesn’t increase the total volume of hair,” Fukuda said.
Existing medication can slow hair loss, but it does not necessarily reverse the problem, he added.
New treatment using the technique may be available in 10 years, the professor said.
While the study offers hope for the hairless, Fukuda debunked some rather optimistic reports suggesting McDonald’s fries could help cure baldness.
The silicone used in his study, dimethylpolysiloxane, is reportedly used by the fast food giant in its oil fryers, but consuming the substance alone offers no fringe benefits.
Fukuda said he was baffled by the readers’ misinterpretation of his research.
“I have seen online comments asking, ‘how many fries would I have to eat to grow my hair?’ ” he said. “I’d feel bad if people think eating something would do that!”
