Balding and Hair Loss Tied to Air Pollution in New Study

Balding and Hair Loss Tied to Air Pollution in New Study The research was presented at the 28th European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology Congress in Spain.

Scientists from the Future Science Research Centre in the Republic of Korea conducted the study.

In their experiments, cells from the base of hair follicles and human scalps were exposed to both particulate matter (PM) and diesel particulate.

PM is a result of fossil fuel, oil and coal burning.

It is also released into the atmosphere from mining and manufacturing.

After 24 hours, the amount of protein responsible for hair growth decreased in the cells.

While much is known about the link between air pollution and disease, little is known about its effects on human skin.
