@Koga , I agree that Cutler has no dht sensitive follicles , but did you read the study from 2010 I posted stating "While nutrition has been linked to balding, according to Medical News Today, there is little evidence to prove that lifting weights generates enough testosterone to be responsible for hair loss."
