The Link Between Hairloss and Acne: Dairy a culprit?
°°°WARNING! SPECULATION AHEAD!°°°
There is a lot of talk about a link between dairy and acne, but you will also note there seems to be a lot in common between acne and hair loss. For instance, the side effects between Accutane and Finasteride have been compared many times on places like propeciahelp.com etc .
I won't go into it too much as I really am not that knowledgeable, but what I did want to point out was that apparently milk is taken from pregnant cows for whatever reason, and as a result they contain a high amount of hormones. These hormones are purported to encourage things such as acne, but in other people can have various other adverse effects.
Could it not be then that the increase in MPB in Japan was not linked to a Westernised diet (which isn't entirely true in and of itself), but rather an increase in dairy consumption?
Could there not be a link between the consumption of milk and other dairy products and hair loss?
I have found that drinking a lot of milk for gym (protein shakes) has increased my acne a lot, and could POTENTIALLY be the cause for an increase in miniaturised hairs I'm noticing around the hairline.
So for curiosity's sake, would people be willing to respond to this thread with their daily dairy consumption habits, and a brief look at their hairloss history? I won't do this as mine was clearly linked to Accutane, but if others would be willing to would be great.
If the comments support my hypothesis, then I think we could even organise a dairy-free challenge to see if there is any improvement with our hair.
