in reference to a quote at the end of this article:
I am concerned that in the next two years they will come up with a drug that will retain hair, and I (25 yo male) will be the last generation of bald people. The rest of my life it won’t be normal to be bald…. urgh? do any of these ‘on the horizon’ cures actually regrow hair???
I wrote about the possibility of the baldness cure being just a couple years away here.
You’re assuming a lot to suggest that it won’t be normal to be bald for the rest of your life, and even then, there are options like Scalp MicroPigmentation (SMP), hair transplantation, and even medication, to make it so that you don’t appear bald. I expect that we’re more than just two years away from the cure being a reality, but research is ongoing. And even if balding is somehow completely eradicated for future generations, there will still be millions of men around the world that have hair loss, so I wouldn’t get too worked up about it being abnormal.
