I didn't say it's all genetics. I did say we know genetics determine whether you will have MPB. They also determine your pattern (ie sensitivity of individual follicles to DHT) and, based on existing data, overwhelmingly determine the rate of balding (assuming no medicinal intervention has taken place).
This is basic science now, with decades of peer reviewed studies behind it. However we have jack sh*t to show us that food or sex can appreciably affect the MPB process in any way. At this point what we have is a bunch of tinfoil hat conspiracy theorists on forums saying you can reproduce finasteride's effects by eating healthy and not cumming (because those things will definitely eliminate 70% of your DHT levels--LOL)
A good diet has plenty of positive effects. Hair maintenance is not one of them. These joke guesswork hypotheses (that word is too generous actually) keep coming back, and failing, every few years on these forums. Let them stay dead this time.
Of course I'm sure this won't convince some people to abandon their favorite pet conspiracy theories. So I'll leave them to it, this thread is dead to me until any kind of meaningful data comes up that actually demonstrates a direct cause-effect relationship between orgasms+food and MPB.
