Why Hair Loss Leads to Something Much More Sinister...
Alex Reid here with your Monday roundup.
I looked in the mirror to adjust my hair, and then I saw it peeking through…
My first strand of gray hair.
Did I spiral into a midlife crisis? Did I go buy a fancy sports car? Find a girlfriend half my age? Or pull out the hair dye? All just to regain my “youth”?
No, not at all.
This discovery, though many years ago, was pretty underwhelming for me.
But what happens when even the gray hair forsakes you?
Hair loss is one of the biggest issues men and women face in their 60s (and even some as early as their 30s)...
And a recent study shows that hair loss can hurt more than just your ego...
It can be downright debilitating.
In fact, a recent study revealed that hair cell damage is the main cause behind age-related hearing loss.
Phe-zei Wu, MD, a postdoctoral research fellow in Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery in the Eaton-Peabody Laboratories at Massachusetts Eye and Ear, and his colleagues studied 120 inner ears collected at autopsies.
Previous studies greatly underestimated the role of hair loss, meaning there’s so much data researchers have simply bypassed or didn’t look into deep enough…
In many cases, the sample sizes were just entirely too small to use.
But thanks to a hot, new tech, Dr. Wu and the team used a new algorithm and new techniques to uncover the true cause of age-related hearing loss.
Dr. Wu states:
"Our study upends the dogma about the major cause of age-related hearing loss. Documenting the dominant role of progressive hair cell loss in the hearing impairment of normal aging means that the millions who suffer with this condition could benefit from the hair cell regenerative therapies that are the focus of ongoing research across the world. No one is focusing on approaches to regenerate the stria."
Dr. Wu really dives deep into this study.
But he isn’t the only one connecting the cellular dots during this longevity journey...
The Code to Long Life
Our very own Chief Medical Advisor, Dr. Anil Bajnath, has studied anti-aging for over 10 years.
From nutrition to fitness to your genes…
Dr. Bajnath has committed his life’s work to the study of "long life."
And you can learn about it in his brand-new book, The Longevity Equation.
And it’s just as it sounds…
Dr. Bajnath has cracked the code to living a healthier, happier life for as long as possible.
After all, isn’t that what we all want?
Sure, we have different goals:
You might want to drop a few pounds, or maybe you want more energy.
I personally focus on boosting my immunity during times like these because I want to be around to see my grandkids get married. And I can only do that if I take care of myself now.
I have to actively invest in my health.
And I promise you this: You will thank me when you grab a copy of The Longevity Equation.
Since we’re starting August fresh…
Make The Longevity Equation your book of the month!
To your health,
