It looks like I will one day have all my missing hair back… A study investigating a new treatment for gastrointestinal disease had an unexpected side effect: It reversed baldness.
Scientists were testing a new chemical compound on mice genetically altered to overproduce a stress hormone known as corticotrophin-releasing factor (CRF), which, among other effects, causes mice to lose their hair as they age.

After five days of daily injections of a newly developed anti-stress hormone, the balding mice were returned to their habitats. Three months later researchers went to gather up the mice for follow-up studies, but their hair-less subjects were gone.

“It was completely unexpected,” Jean Rivier, with the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, Calif., told Discovery News. “They couldn’t identify the mice except for their ear tags. That’s when they realized that they’d grown hair.”

Follow-up studies on younger mice that hadn’t yet lost their fur showed the anti-stress hormone actually prevented hair loss. READ MORE

A booking agency is claiming that they’ve lost hundreds of thousands of dollars due to DMX’s ongoing legal troubles. A company called Heavy Rotation is suing the rap star for allegedly failing to live up to their agreement and never taking the stage. According to TMZ.com, DMX and Heavy Rotation reached an exclusive deal last year that allowed Heavy Rotation to book the rapper’s concerts anywhere in the world. However, DMX’s legal problems and his child support disputes led to a lien being placed on his passport. Heavy Rotation says they spent thousands of dollars to cover legal bills and child support hoping that the lien would be removed.

They claim that DMX ruined their efforts by continuing to cause problems. Heavy Rotation also says DMX violated their contract by hiring outside management that tried to book his shows within the United States. DMX’s manager denies the allegations, stating that the emcee decided to no longer work with Heavy Rotation due to some poor business practices. Heavy Rotation is now seeking to recover the nearly 750-thousand dollars they claim they spent on DMX.
