That most people hope for a REAL good working (autologous) HM hair regeneration therapy, so that they are able to STOP to take Finasteride (Propecia etc) - after such an effective (cell-)therapy. Because it seems finasterides COULD work just counterproductively in regard prostate-cancer - current, in theory …

@saturn - Good find! :slight_smile:

I’m fed up of this news story. The reason prematurely bald men are statistically less likely to get pancreatic cancer is because we’re all popping dutasteride, finasteride, saw palmetto or beta sitosterol on a regular basis and have unusually low amounts of DHT in our bodies (men typically have the same levels whether or not they lose their hair, all dependent on how sensitive follicles are to it).

If they did the study 30 years ago, the results would be very different.

Also, for anyone who think’s baldness isn’t a serious condition should consider:

  1. How much productivity is lost when people lose their self confidence and retreat into their shell. When anybody just gives up, the whole of society suffers for it. Society suffers from baldness collectively because it is regularly denied the intellect, wisdom and effort of men prematurely losing their hair who decide to become recluse. Who knows what brilliant minds we lost in the arts, politics or the professions because of hair loss.

  2. Baldness causes an alarming amount of cases of depression, some of them clinical. This is a huge burden on health care systems around the world. Which leads me on to…

  3. The worryingly high proportion of suicides that are committed by young men. Baldness may not kill directly, but it can kill the soul of a sufferer who can finish the job off themselves more often perhaps than society likes to think.

  4. Baldness causes prejudices such as that a man with less hair is less intelligent, hard working, dynamic etc etc. It therefore causes society to misjudge one another, and to make bad decisions about who to trust.

Society needs to stop twittering on pointless news stories about hair loss and take it seriously. It does serious harm to societies that don’t seem to be appreciated.

I sometimes like to suggest baldness is a psychological condition with hair loss as a physical side affect. I say this because no matter how hard so many of us try, when we’re balding we’re also experiencing depression, lethargy and in me I developed some really bad hypochondria that I’ve never shook off no matter how ludicrous I sometimes think I am! I really do sometimes wonder if baldness starts as a chemical imbalance in the brain that causes insecurity and depression which later leads to hair loss. I must say in my case I lost my mind shortly before my hair.

Sadly, society just thinks it’s a cosmetic joke.

Rassman’s current “opinion” about new hair treatments:

There are always just 2 words in his mind: “transplants” and “Propecia”.
Are YOU satisfied with Hair Transplants & Propecia?

Good news about castration - it cuts the risk of STDs.

What a great post, seriously. In my early and mid 20’s I was a very positive young man, I was a go getter and motivated. I had a healthy level of self confidence.

Once I started thinning in the crown and mid scalp and people started commenting my whole perception of myself, my life and my future changed. I was sad a lot, didn’t believe in myself, wasn’t motivated to hang out with my friends, to go to the gym.

Had my HT 3 years ago, it seems like a life time ago, but I will never forget how losing my hair made me feel.
