Imagine a world teeming with people on the sidewalks of major cities rocking long flowing and vibrant hairstyles tossing and teasing scandalously with the breeze as the baldness gene has effectively been eliminated. It’s easy if you try.
Without inciting disturbing nostalgic visions of a certain musical which shocked audiences at the height of the rebellious times in the late 1960’s, this is all about science and how tangible and accurate research rocks!
Through innovative, the evolution of stem cell research into viable medical practices, is still its infantile stages. The latest instance of a cutting edge breakthrough marred in perpetual controversy, has breached the perimeter barrier of a long suffering demographic typified in popular culture by the phrase, “I’m not only the president, but I’m also a client.”. Shrouded by silent tears and emotions of self-doubt, the tedious footprint of those afflicted with male pattern baldness, made quite public by the efforts of the memorable tactics featured on the Hair Club For Men infomercials spawned on late night television in the 1980’s, may soon enjoy an infusion of hope and solidarity. Did we mention that good science rocks!
The UPI reports that researchers from Indiana University, may be on the fruitful pathway of providing every living human being on earth with the opportunity for a full head of hair, thanks to a finding from a recent study published in Cell Reports. The downside to the seemingly uplifting discovery, is that those looking for an immediate cure to the “cue ball” top of the head arrangement, may have to wait a few decades. That’s because, the laboratory grown crop of hair, is currently harvested from mice. However, if one wants to sport a “Disney Do” and court Minnie Mouse, this is the prime opportunity to create a revolutionary image movement. For those who have the patience to trust an evolving technology, the encouraging research shows that scientists are on the right track in effectively eliminating baldness. If only they could perfect the art of genetic male enhancement or eliminate stumpiness, than the future looks bright for men, and we can all thank the horses and giraffes of the globe.
