“I think that anyone that knows anything about investing would
assume that a cure or a treatment option to regain your hair would be an investment opportunity of a lifetime.”
So that’s why Pfizer, Novartis, Brystol-Myers Squibb, Lilly and so many other big pharmas are scrambling to cure hair loss. Gee, who would have thought.
“With that said, 4 of the last 5 prime ministers of Australia were bald, balding and 7 of the last 10 uk prime ministers were bald, balding. But seriously, are we really debating whether or not presidents/prime
ministers are elected into office because of their hair? That’s crazy.”
Like I said, who was the last bald president of the USA elected to office? Funny thing is, since the invention of TV (visual) Eisenhower was the last one (and his opponent, Stevenson, was as bald or balder, so voters had no choice). Most elected presidents have hair up the wazoo despite being in their forties, fifties, and sixties when elected.
“I never said hair loss was not a serious issue, it is, it has serious affects [sic] on the mental suffering of its patients. But that’s exactly what it is, a psychological issue, nothing else.”
The younger the man, the less likely he is to be bald and the more likely he is to have hair. Younger men are also more fertile than older men.
That is proof that sexual selection favors hairy men.
“You are not limited any in any way by being bald, well, we probably wont feature in any shampoo ads on tv, haha. You’re only limited by your emotional state. At the end of the day, there are a lot more diseases, finding of cures that are more deserving of funding and research than MPB. Not that there shouldn’t be any funding and research into MPB, i’m not saying that, but dont you think that say a disease like cystic fibrosis with a life expectancy of 30-40 deserves a little more attention than MPB?”
No, I don’t agree.
Hair loss increases your chances of having fewer or no children (proof of this is, as I mentioned above, the rareness of the expression of genes for baldness in men in their younger, more fertile years).
Anything that f*cks with an animal’s ability to pass its genes to the next generation is very, very serious.
Like I said, the Aesops’ fox comforts himself by convincing himself that what he cannot have isn’t that important to have.
But it takes courage to admit you are hopelessly f*cked by something you want but cannot have.
Not to mention that only 70,000 people in the whole world (just ~30,000 in the USA) have cystic fibrosis. Not much of a market there for the big pharmas to find a cure.
Yet worldwide more billions of men and women suffer serious hair loss, and plenty of them in rich countries where people can afford expensive treatments.
But hey, Vin Diesel has a girlfriend, so hair loss isn’t serious.
There is a prejudice against bald people. Unlike racial minorities and women and gays and AIDs sufferers–we aren’t even afforded the dignity of that prejudice being acknowledged.
And people like you are the Uncle Toms of hair loss.
