Changes in hair transplant techniques since the mid-20th Century.

Hair loss has been a cause for concern almost since the dawn of recorded history. The Ebers Papyrus, discovered at the ancient site of Luxor in Egypt and dating from around 1500 BC, describes prescriptions and invocations for a cure for baldness drawing on medical “knowledge” from thousands of years earlier. Even Hippocrates, the Greek father of modern medicine, experimented with various cures for his own encroaching hair loss, apparently involving opium, horseradish, beetroot and pigeon droppings. Hippocrates’ experiments were, needless to say, unsuccessful. However, he did note that the eunuchs guarding the king’s harem did not appear to suffer from hair loss, leading to a correct assumption that the hormonal changes brought about by castration were in some way associated with this apparent anomaly. Indeed, we now know that the presence of the (predominantly) male hormone testosterone explains why, apart from medical conditions such as Alopecia Totalis, men tend to lose hair in later life while women do not, at least not to the same extent.

How Much Can A Quick Internet Search Tell Someone About You?

As everyone, even the ape creatures of the Indus and the mold under my sink, is probably aware, there is a whole lot of information on the web about everyone. Some of it is user generated, like our Facebook status updates, the comments we leave on news stories, YouTube videos and blog posts, and our tweets, and for the most part we know about that and have some control over it. However, there is also a lot of data from various sources that it is possible for people to find which you may not know is out there. Usually data is gathered about people to be used in a 'mass' sense – for example, you may have data collected when you use your supermarket loyalty card, but this is so the store and people they share their data with can see trends in what thousands of people in different age and social groups are buying, rather than because anyone is interested in your shopping cart in and of itself.
