    Anyone Studying Oxytocin?

    This science website says that men with male pattern baldness have higher amounts of Stem Cell Factor (SCF) around the hair follicles of the beard than non-balding men. I'm not sure if that means bald men have less SCF in the scalp? It also...

    Laser Hair Growth, does it work?

    About 15 years ago I had a 3 month course of laser treatment and minoxidil at an 'advanced hair studio', but unfortunately it didn't work. They did tell me that it looked as though the circulation to my scalp had improved and that further treatment might improve the chances of my hair growing.

Then about 4 years ago I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease and started a strict Gluten Free diet. Recently I tried taking Niacin again and was surprised to find that it didn't give...

The only explanation I can think of is that the Gluten Free diet might be reducing the activity of the PG1 and PDG2 receptors that are associated with...
