Yes baldness has always been around but has there ever been so much SERIOUS focus on finding a viable treatment for it before,,especially with the latest technology available.

Not until the 'community' at large had set out to destroy it, hypothetically it would still be a scourge to this day.
Look ahead to our horizon with positive eyes people.
