Hopefully, this will result in the demise of ‘the come-over’!

New treatment using the technique may be available in 10 years, the professor said.

I think I will already be bald at this point.

Thanks science, you're too late again !!!

Ten years too late to save Trump's pate! So he'll just have to let his comb-over keep blowin' in the wind.

but consuming the substance alone offers no fringe benefits.

Ha I see what you did there

TBH the least of my problems would be going bald. I'd trade that for some of my other "issues" in a heartbeat.

This is the absolute greatest achievement in medical science since the polio vaccine.

Prof Fukuda would win a Nobel prize, if I had anything to say about it.

You people with full heads of hair just can't understand.

You can bet, that once this becomes available to the public, the price will be hair raising...

Interesting. I hope by then they can get the price down to reasonable level without having to take out a loan.

Up until my mid-40s I had a full head of hair and was clean-shaven. Now in my mid-50s, upper part of my head is bald (supplemented by shaving), but have since grown beard and mustache.....just to prove I can still grow hair on my head. Of course the beard is grey, but that's another story. Perhaps Prof Fukuda can develop a process to grow back hair follicles at original youthful colour? LOL

Just need to figure out how to fasten the petri dish to my head...
