Fight Against Maturity

Quick! Pour coffee over your head!

As a result of …extensive research studies, German scientists [have] arrived at [the] fascinating conclusion [that coffee can prevent baldness.] Apparently, claim the scientists, it is possible to prevent baldness at an early age by means of treating hair with products containing caffeine (for instance by rubbing a special solution into the scalp).

However, the scientific team advises coffee lovers against consuming their favorite beverage in excess to fight baldness. According to an expert-cosmetologist Adolf Klenka, ‘one would need to consume 60-80 cups of coffee per day for the caffeine to reach hair follicles.’ Professor Elsner in turn notes that ‘even though a person would be willing to do just that for beauty’s sake, our research did not cover the way caffeine intake influences one’s scalp. We did prove however that caffeine should be used as an external substance that should be applied directly onto the scalp.’

According to him, those men who are genetically predisposed to baldness, should consider such ‘caffeine therapy’ while they are still relatively young. German medics consider that rubbing coffee grounds into the scalp is the most effective way to prevent baldnes

  4. The only thing I have is the link to the Pravda article which appears at the top of this item. It is from Pravda though so take it for what it is worth.
