I woke up today and realized that baldness will be cured in the next several years. I’m convinced of it. And in 5 years we will all be having HM injections in the same way people have Botox injections. IOW, in 5 years all of us will look 10-15 years younger. Fantastic.
BTW, below is another post from Dr Rassman on HM. Keep in mind just a few years ago he kept saying that it’d be about “10-20 years” for HM, now it’s just “years”, he’s just “a bit” skeptical, and he doesn’t even doubt the final outcome. I love it when the skeptics change their tune:
“I don’t know enough details about Intercytex to comment beyond what I’ve already written. My present thoughts are that it may take years to prove and then have approved for clinical use, the final treatments that Intercytex is working on. I am a bit skeptical on the schedules that are projected (maybe not the final outcome), but I frankly don’t know nor do I believe everything I hear or read. DHT will not impact hair that is not genetically impaired, so if the hair that Intercytex is such a hair, then it will be resistant to the impact of DHT.”
Now compare this with Rassman’s earlier statements.
For example, here’s Dr Rassman pessimistic analysis back in March of 2007:
“Just be patient and we all should know the result of the research in less than 10 years one way or another (at least that is what is being projected for a solution timeline).”
And here he is in February of 2007, even more pessimistic:
“My opinion runs better than 10 years before it is available, and another 10 years to actually perfect it. Let’s see who is right.”
And here he is in 2006, obviously selling his hair transplants:
"Personally, I do not believe that I will be unemployed for years yet as I do not believe that hair transplantation is going to go away anytime soon. If you are balding, ask yourself the following question: Am I willing to wait for years, possibly decades, for the best solution to hair loss and remain bald during my youth and most productive years just to avoid a simple surgery?
Oh, and this is also interesting… Rassman in 2006:
“I stay right up front in this process and stay in touch with everyone doing the various types of research.”
Could he be changing his tune because he knows a little bit more than we know? (I actually rather doubt it, but who knows…)
All the best,
