This Scientist May Have Found the Cure for Baldness

Angela Christiano suffered from alopecia areata, which made her turn her attention to study baldness. She may just have found a cure for it too.
For her most recent study,
Dr. Christiano, a hair geneticist and dermatology professor at Columbia
University Medical Center, focused on dermal papillae. It is the cells at the base of hair follicles that make follicles rise.
Papillae have the ability to reprogram surrounding skin cells to form new follicles.
researchers took papilla cells from seven men who were undergoing hair
transplants, cultured them in hanging drops and then injected them into
human skin grafted onto mice. Not just any human skin: to put their
ideas to a rigorous test, the researchers made the grafts from a type of
skin that is normally 100 percent hairless — foreskins from circumcised
infants. A technique that can grow hair on a foreskin has a pretty good
chance of growing it on a person’s head, they reasoned.
There are still some more trials and tests before this hits the market. Lets hope that's sooner than later!

Peanuts, almonds, walnuts, and walnuts head the rundown of the most devoured nut assortments in the United States, appearing regularly in better things. Nonetheless, nuts are characteristically solid: While they do pack some fat—with almonds being on the lower side (15 grams for each ounce, dry-broiled and unsalted) and macadamia nuts on the higher side (21 grams for every ounce, dry-cooked and unsalted).

Selling your house may be an overwhelming or a super easy task depending on how you handle it. Before listing your house for sale, you should first decide whether you will sell it yourself or hire an agent. If you have a tight schedule or lack the necessary marketing skills to handle potential buyers, then you should consider hiring an agent. On the other hand, if you feel that you can handle the process and want to be in control, you should go for the sale by owner option. Read more
