I have seen certain studys that show hormone polluted meats such as mince meat and steak can accelerate MPB causing more hair loss. Is there any truth to this?
I found an article with a quote that suggested there was something to this: “If you look at Japan, male pattern baldness was almost unheard of prior to World War II. The Japanese diet is now far more fatty and Westernized, and Japanese men are going bald everywhere. It’s clear that a high-fat, meat-based diet raises testosterone levels, and that may adversely affect hair follicles. I’m not sure eating low-fat foods will stop hair loss, but it might slow it down.”
The above quote is attributed to Dr Michael Klaper, a vegan health advocate that focuses on the perceived dangers of consuming meat and dairy. The problem is, there is no modern science to back his hair loss claims up. While there are many suggestions that “we are what we eat” and that diet does influence the expression of genes, I am unaware of good statistical or scientific studies that accurately report balding prior to WWII in Japanese men or that meat contributes to hair loss.
