Are men in denial about hair loss? Euden Valdez (philstar.com) - October 8, 2018 - 11:00am Men in their 20s, 30s and 40s speak up and the truth will surprise you! MANILA, Philippines — When we say hair, we immediately think of women and their bad hair days. But men can be as meticulous and expressive when it comes to their crowning glory. In fact, hair becomes more important as they age due to the very possibility of losing it. While it’s normal for an individual to lose 100 to 150 strands of hair daily, it has been proven that hair loss is more common in men than women. Globally, 18 percent of men aged 20 to 40 have faced significant hair loss—reveals leading personal care brand Dove Men. By the time they reach their 50s, 50 percent might already be experiencing hair loss. A precedent to balding and baldness, excessive hair fall is a serious concern for men regardless of their age.

MANILA, Philippines — Melanie Cuevas was 11 years old when she had a retinal hemorrhage or bleeding inside the eye. “Normally, someone with high blood pressure or diabetes would have that, but the doctors said that I was too young to have it at that age,” Melanie recalls. “So they tested me for high blood pressure, diabetes, and leukemia.” The tests came out negative. The doctors were perplexed. The following year, she did not have any symptoms. Then the next year, she had joint pains. Her fingers and toes were swollen. The doctors thought she had rheumatoid arthritis, so she was given medication for that. “When I was 16, I started to have falling hair. I was having these rashes, and I felt a shortness of breath,” Melanie relates. “A friend of my mom suggested that I should see a rheumatologist, who advised that I should get myself tested.” She was off on vacation at that time in the States, and it was there where Melanie got tested … [Read more...] about Melanie and Emmeline: ‘Hope For Lupus’ Crusaders
By Shree Paradkar Race & Gender Columnist Mon., June 11, 2018 Many moons ago, when I was a kid trudging barefoot up a hot stony path to India’s Tirupati temple, fabled for its benevolent god as well as its floor-to-ceiling sacks filled with gold, I watched men, women and kids coming back in the other direction, having been to the sanctum sanctorum, their heads shorn of hair in a mark of devotion. I didn’t know, and I doubt those devotees did, that what they’d given up was “black gold,” widely used in the lucrative wig and weave-making industry in Europe and North America. I didn’t get my head shaved, but the fact wig-making is a multimillion-dollar industry reflects the importance given to what sprouts from your head. As always, what nature bestows is never good enough. The main problem for men may be loss of hair, for women, not only must they have hair, it has to be straighter, curlier, softer, finer, lighter, … [Read more...] about New short film PICK aims to straighten out misconceptions about Black women’s hair

By Jacques Gallant Legal Affairs Reporter Paul Hunter Feature Writer Vjosa Isai Staff Reporter Fri., March 16, 2018 Warning: This article contains graphic details. To his friends and clients, Bruce McArthur was a gregarious white-haired landscaper who brought beauty to upscale Toronto neighbourhoods. But that pleasant demeanour masked a smouldering malevolence. He’s been charged with six counts of first-degree murder, accused of luring and murdering men, time and again. This is the story of a man who, under the nose of police in the heart of Toronto, is accused of dismembering and burying his victims; a master of duplicity who beguiled his friends and, despite the red flags, plied his deadly deceit in a trusting community. It’s an evolving portrait of evil, told through interviews, court documents and media reports, that depicts an alleged serial killer who, as one expert suggests, embodies “a level of … [Read more...] about How alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur hid in plain sight for years
