Why is my tax money being spent on research to grow hair??? Lots of companies spend lots of money to make us feel insecure about natural phenomena like hair loss, wrinkles, etc etc etc, and then sell us products that purport to "cure" these "diseases". What a waste.

PS Add to the list of "fake diseases" gray hair.

About 25 million people in Japan suffer from hair loss caused by such reasons as medication side effects and male pattern baldness. 

Hope for all those oyaji with, what I like to call "bar-code hair" syndrome! Probably going to cost and arm and a leg once it gets to market!

Why is my tax money being spent on research to grow hair??

Because the government is probably the only one with the money! Private funding for research is pretty rare here!

Best way of dealing with baldness? Go with it - ditch the comb-overs!

Bald ?...go for the Sean Connery / Bruce Willis / Jason Statham look...or as close to it as you can get :)

You will do just fine with the ladies ...which seems to be the main reason guys fret about hair loss.

This is a Nobel prize-caliber discovery. If commercialized successfully, the medicine would put wig makers out of work.

One of my sadistic pleasures is comparing my mop of hair to the baldies in my office and winding them up.

@Jimizo, I do that too! My wife hates my long hair but when I ask her about bald guys, she says 'yada,' so, hair today, hair tomorrow, and hopefully, hair until the day I'm no longer here!

Does it mess with testosterone levels like the current treatments?
