Response to the Lab test
 
Answer: In January last year a study was carried out and published in the International Journal of Dermatology. The study involved hair follicles being removed from balding men and cultured (artificially grown) in a lab. All the follicles were exposed to testosterone and some were also exposed to caffeine. The hair growth from follicles exposed to testosterone was significantly reduced (as is the case with follicles affected by Male Pattern Hair Loss) whereas not only did caffeine seem to prevent testosterone from negatively affecting hair growth, but it also stimulated growth of the hair.
Journal of Dermatology Study – Coffee Hair Growth Benefits
A study published in the International Journal of Dermatology (Volume 46, Issue 1, pages 27-35) addressed coffee hair growth benefits as a possible stimulant for hair follicles. The study found that caffeine works by blocking the effects of a chemical known as DHT which damages hair follicles and is thought to cause Male Pattern Baldness (MPB).
CoffeeGrounds&Beans – Coffee Hair Growth Benefits
Germany’s University of Jena researcher Dr. Tobias Fischer studied the effect of caffeine on human hair follicle growth. He said “caffeine is a well-known substance, yet little is known about its effect on human hair follicle growth. Caffeine shows it’s a promising candidate for hair growth stimulation.”
Dr. Fischer conducted his study by taking scalp biopsies from men in the early stages of hair loss. He extracted hair follicles from the 14 men in the trial and placed them in test tubes with solutions containing different levels of caffeine. The hair samples were left in the lab for up to 8 days to monitor the growth results.
Increase In Average Growth Of Hair Follicles
When Dr. Fischer compared the hair follicles treated with caffeine against those that weren’t, he discovered some interesting results. The average growth of the follicles treated with caffeine increased by around 46 per cent compared to the control group. In addition, the life cycle of the hair treated with caffeine was extended by 37 percent. Caffeine boosted the length of the hairs by between 33 and 40 per cent.—Dr Fischer noted that “hair follicles treated with caffeine showed a highly significant growth rate at 24 hours and still showed further significant growth at eight days.”
Caffeinated Tea Vs Coffee Hair Growth Benefits?
Although hair growth and hair loss experts have studied coffee hair growth benefits, some experts point out that it’s the caffeine in the popular drink which is thought to help stimulate hair follicle growth. While coffee hair growth benefits are the focal point of many studies, others have studied the possible benefits of caffeinated teas to achieve similar results.
Dark Brazilian Santos Beans – Coffee Hair Growth
It’s important to note that all testing of coffee hair growth benefits were linked to topical applications and not to drinking lots of coffee or similar caffeinated drinks.
Follicular Penetration of Topically Applied Caffeine Via Shampoo
As a result of studies performed on hair follicles to determine coffee hair growth benefits, some hair loss and hair growth related shampoo products contain caffeine or coffee related ingredients.
Researchers in Germany wanted to determine if topically applied caffeine could be delivered to the follicle as a shampoo. The studies showed that after 2 minutes of shampooing, the caffeine in the shampoo was able to penetrate into the scalp via the hair follicles and outermost layer of the skin (stratum corneum).
DIY Coffee Hair Oils & Butters – Coffee Hair Growth Benefits
Some hair consumers interested in conducting their own tests of coffee hair growth benefits have created special hair mask recipes utilizing a base coffee oil.
Coffee grounds can easily be dried and then infused into an oil which can be applied to the scalp in a variety of delivery methods ranging from direct application to the scalp, pre-shampoo treatments, shampoo applications and/or rinse-out or leave-in conditioners. The coffee grounds or oil can also be combined with a shea butter or coconut oil base to create a special scalp mask.
As a side benefit, used coffee grounds are known to be a great exfoliant for the scalp. Coffee grounds are also a great skin treatment as well as helping to reduce cellulite in some cases. Coffee is also often used as part of a henna rinse.
Coffee In The Shower
Organic Coconut Oil – Coffee Hair Growth Benefits
Some hair consumers have discovered that cold brewed coffee, when used on wet hair ,as an after shampoo rinse, will often help slow or stop shedding.
After shampooing, completely rinse hair. Gently squeeze excess liquid from hair with fingers. Pour pre-brewed cool coffee into hair using a clean plastic bowl or container to catch the drippings. Continue to pour coffee through the hair until all the drippings have ceased. Allow to sit on hair for 5 minutes.
Add desired rinse-out or leave-in conditioner . Wrap hair in stain-proof towel or cloth and allow the coffee conditioner mixture to remain on hair for 30 to 60 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water and finish with a cool water final rinse. Towel blot and air dry if possible. Style as normal.

Effect of caffeine and testosterone on the proliferation of human hair follicles in vitro.
Fischer TW1, Hipler UC, Elsner P.
Abstract
BACKGROUND:
Androgenetic alopecia (AGA) is a common problem in men of all ages, affecting approximately 50% at 50 years of age. The underlying cause is an androgen-dependent miniaturization of genetically predetermined hair follicles. Here, the hair organ culture model was used to investigate the effects of testosterone and caffeine; the latter being a promising candidate for hair growth stimulation.
METHODS:
Hair follicles from 14 biopsies, taken from the vertex areas from male AGA patients, were cultivated for 120-192 h in vitro with normal William’s E medium (control) or William’s E medium containing different concentrations of testosterone and/or caffeine. Hair shaft elongation was measured daily and at the end of cultivation, cryosections of follicles were stained with Ki-67 to evaluate the degree and localization of keratinocyte proliferation.
RESULTS:
Significant growth suppression was found in hair follicles treated with 5 microg/ml testosterone. This was counteracted by caffeine in concentrations of 0.001% and 0.005%. Moreover, caffeine alone led to a significant stimulation of hair follicle growth. These results were confirmed immunohistochemically by Ki-67 staining.
CONCLUSIONS:
Androgen-dependent growth inhibition of ex vivo hair follicles from patients suffering from AGA was present in the human hair organ culture model, a constellation which may serve for future studies to screen new substances against androgen-dependent hair loss. Caffeine was identified as a stimulator of human hair growth in vitro; a fact which may have important clinical impact in the management of AGA.–PMID:17214716-[PubMed – indexed for MEDLINE]

Blood poisoning increases the risk of blood clots, new research shows
Date:

Aarhus University
Every year, almost 10,000 Danes are admitted to hospital with blood poisoning, while more than 3,000 patients become infected while they are hospitalized. New research shows that Danes suffering from blood poisoning risk an extra challenge in the form of an increased risk of suffering a blood clot-“We have followed more than 4,000 people who have been admitted with blood poisoning. The study shows that the risk of suffering a blood clot in either the brain or the heart is twice as high for patients with blood poisoning in relation to other patients who are also admitted with acute illnesses,[F1]” says Michael Dalager-Pedersen , PhD student at Aarhus University and Registrar at Aalborg University Hospital. He has carried out the study in collaboration with colleagues from Aarhus University, Aarhus University Hospital, and Aalborg University Hospital.–The risk of a blood clot was highest within the first 30 days after the infection, where the risk was 3.6 percent against 1.7 percent for the other acutely admitted patients, and only 0.2 percent among the population in general.—The study has just been published in Circulation.—In recent years there has been a growing level of interest for the correlation between the risk of blood clots and infections such as blood poisoning. The researchers hope that the new knowledge can be utilized to ensure better prevention and earlier treatment. “It is important that we have now documented that there is a clear correlation between blood poisoning and blood clots. The new knowledge can be used by the medical doctors to increase focus on this patient group so they can begin relevant treatment quicker,” says Reimar Wernich Thomsen from the Department of Clinical Epidemiology at Aarhus University and Aarhus University Hospital.–He explains that the correlation may, among other things, be due to the fact that the blood clots arise due to the increased strain on the heart and blood vessels that the infection causes.[F2]–Story Source-The above story is based on materials provided by Aarhus University.

Blood Poisoning Causes—- Sepsis can be triggered by an infection in any part of the body. The most common sites of infection leading to sepsis are the lungs, urinary tract, abdomen and pelvis.
Sources of infection
Types of infection associated with sepsis include:
lung infection (pneumonia)
flu (influenza)
appendicitis
infection of the lining of the digestive system (peritonitis)
an infection of the bladder, urethra or kidneys (urinary tract infection)
skin infections[F3], such as cellulitis, often caused when an intravenous drip or catheter has been inserted into the body through the skin
post-surgical (after surgery) infections
infections of the nervous system, such as meningitis or encephalitis [F4]
In approximately one in five cases, the infection and source of sepsis cannot be detected.
What causes the symptoms of sepsis?
Usually, your immune system will keep the infection limited to one place (known as a localised infection). Your body will produce white blood cells, which travel to the site of the infection to destroy the germs causing infection. A series of biological processes occur, such as tissue swelling, which helps fight the infection and prevents it spreading. This process is known as inflammation.–If your immune system is weakened or an infection is particularly severe, it can spread through the blood into other parts of the body. This causes the immune system to go into overdrive, and the process of inflammation affects the entire body.–This can cause more problems than the initial infection, as widespread inflammation damages tissue and interferes with the flow of blood, leading to a dangerous drop in blood pressure, which stops oxygen reaching your organs and tissue.

Colorado House Passes Forced Vaccination Bill- One of 18 States Pushing Corporate Drugs
Christina Sarich

March 25th, 2014
Updated 03/25/2014 at 2:10 am
Parents will have little choice over whether or not to have their children vaccinated in Colorado now, due to a bipartisan measure passed by Colorado’s House Health, Insurance and Environment Committee this past Thursday. Parents who intended to claim the ‘opt out’ available in a current rendition of Colorado’s current law, due to religious or personal beliefs, will find it much more difficult to do so.–HB 14-1288, which gained traction after recent whooping cough outbreaks, will require parents to complete an online ‘education’ module and get the signature of their health care providers confirming that parents have been informed of health risks and a ‘possible detriment to the community’ if their children go unvaccinated.–House Bill 1288 completely ignores the fact that many vaccines have been proven dangerous to young children, and can even cause death and infertility. Parents and doctors also offered hours of testimony to House representatives, but to no avail. The bill was proposed by State Rep. Dan Pabon (D) as a means to make sure that parents weren’t just opting out of vaccines for ‘convenience,’ as he mentioned in a statement given to the Denver Post.
“Vaccine refusal results in higher rates of vaccine-preventable disease,” Pabon said. “This is a public health issue. These are very serious diseases.”
Colorado’s school children have the sixth-highest rate of non-vaccination among kindergarteners in public school. The new bill mandates that public record be made of all children who are not-vaccinated, via percentages reported by licensed schools and day care centers.[F5]—Pabon argues that immuno-compromised children are being exposed to vaccine-preventable diseases, but these are the very children most at risk when they receive vaccines administered with a traditional vaccine schedule (or even an altered one). Vaccinations given to immuno-compromised children can cause death, even, as evidenced in records leak due to the freedom of information act in the UK.—Pabon also says that older populations are at risk when young children aren’t vaccinated, but how he determines this bit of propaganda is beyond reason.—?Although the bill would not eliminate the personal belief exemption,> parents opposing the legislation argued that increased education mandates could lead to the erosion of parental rights.
“Parents have a constitutional right to parent their children,” Susan Lawson, whose daughter developed encephalitis after a routine vaccine when she was a year old, told CBS Denver. “I am not an uneducated woman.”—–Anti-vaccination advocacy group National Vaccine Information Center has also attacked the proposal as one that “singles out and discriminates against a minority of parents with sincerely held personal beliefs … by assuming they are uneducated and should be forced into a state approved ‘education’ program.’–18 states have recently presented bills to make vaccination opt-outs more difficult. Our rights to choose what to do with our bodies and how to protect our children from vaccines containing dangerous adjuvants are being whittled away. Just look at this list presented by know-vaccines.org of just some of the additives currently in vaccines given to children and adults alike:
• aluminum hydroxide, acetone (solvent used in fingernail polish remover)
• aluminum phosphate (toxic)
• ammonium sulfate
• amphotericin B
• animal tissues: pig blood, horse blood, rabbit brain,
• dog kidney, monkey kidney
• chick embryo, chicken egg, duck egg
• calf (bovine) serum
• betapropiolactone
• fetal bovine serum
• formaldehyde – used to embalm dead bodies
• formalin
• gelatin
• glycerol
• human diploid cells (originating from human aborted fetal tissue)
• hydrolized gelatin
• monosodium glutamate (MSG)
• neomycin (antibiotic)
• neomycin sulfate
• phenol red indicator
• phenoxyethanol (antifreeze)
• potassium diphosphate
• potassium monophosphate
• polymyxin B
• polysorbate 20
• polysorbate 80
• porcine (pig) pancreatic hydrolysate of casein
• residual MRC5 proteins
• sorbitol
• sucrose
• streptomycin (antibiotic)
• thimerosal (mercury)
• tri(n)butylphosphate (neurotoxin)
• VERO cells, a continuous line of monkey kidney cells
• washed sheep red blood cells
These adjuvants cause everything from Alzheimer’s, neurotoxicity, brain injury, auto-immune disorders, gastrointestinal damage, liver and lung damage, cysts, arthritis, kidney damage, allergic reactions, seizures, and even death – but of course parents are opting out, simply due to convenience.

Diets High in Animal Protein May Help Prevent Functional Decline in Elderly Individuals
March 11th, 2014
NEW YORK—A diet high in protein, particularly animal protein, may help elderly individuals maintain a higher level of physical, psychological, and social function according to a study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.——Due to increasing life expectancies in many countries, increasing numbers of elderly people are living with functional decline, such as declines in cognitive ability and activities of daily living. This can have profound effects on the health and well-being of older adults and their caregivers, as well as on health care resources.–Research suggests that as people age, their ability to absorb or process protein may decline. To compensate for this loss, protein requirements may increase with age. Megumi Tsubota-Utsugi, PhD, MPH, RD, of the National Institute of Health and Nutrition in Japan, and her colleagues in Tohoku University and Teikyo University, Japan, wondered whether protein intake might affect the functional capabilities of older adults. They designed a study to investigate the relationship between protein intake and future decline in higher-level functional capacity in older community-dwelling adults in Japan. Their analysis included 1,007 individuals with an average age of 67.4 years who completed food questionnaires at the start of the study and seven years later. Participants were divided into four groups (quartiles) according to their intake levels of total, animal, and plant protein. Tests of higher-level functional capacity included social and intellectual aspects as well as measures related to activities of daily living.—Men in the highest quartile of animal protein intake had a 39 percent decreased chance of experiencing higher-level functional decline than those in the lowest quartile. These associations were not seen in women. No consistent association was observed between plant protein intake and future higher-level functional decline in either sex.–“Identifying nutritional factors that contribute to maintaining higher-level functional capacity is important for prevention of future deterioration of activities of daily living,” said Dr. Tsubota-Utsugi. “Along with other modifiable health behaviors, a diet rich in protein may help older adults maintain their functional capacity.”

FAO reports rise in GM material in non-GM food trade
The FAO said 75 out of 193 member countries responded to questions about low level GM crops found
in non-GM food and feed imports in the first survey of its kind, carried out from February to June last year.
They reported 198 cases of GM crops in non-GM deliveries from 2002 to 2012, with 70% of those (138) detected since 2009.
Linseed, maize, rice and papaya were the most common crops found to contain unauthorised GM material.
Food safety officer at the FAO, Sarah Cahill, said:“The biggest concern is the disruption to trade between countries and of course
the associated economic impact. When low levels of GM crops are detected in a shipment of non-GM crops, the
shipment is generally rejected by the importing country. The confinements are either returned to the country of
origin, which in itself has cost implications, or in some cases they are destroyed. Now, the latter not only has economic
implications but also contributes to food losses Under current EU regulations, the threshold limit for unintentional presence of
GM materials in crops is 0.9%. Above this level, items containing approved GM products require labelling.[F6]
However, most of the 75 countries involved in the study did not have policies in place for low levels of GM material. Cahill added
that with increased production of GM crops – and improved sensitivity and frequency of testing – it was probably not unusual that
detection was increasing in traded food. Consumer implications? Any of these GM products that are in the market have been subject
to rigorous safety assessments, so from a safety perspective they are not marketed without undergoing that level of assurance, Cahill
said.“We are aware that many consumers like to make a choice between GM foods and non-GM foods and, if it’s not clear whether a
non-GM food has low levels of GM foods, this may have implications for the choice that they make. They may not have all the information
they need to make that choice FAO senior food safety officer in charge of the survey Renata Clarke said the FAO also asked countries to
help the organisation assess the safety of GM crops for human consumption We would like to see countries sharing any scientific
findings they have on the subject, she said. With this in mind, the FAO has set up a GM foods platform for countries to share information
on safety assessments, The survey is one way in which the FAO aims to tackle the issue of low level unauthorised GM crops in shipments,
with the resulting information

Flavonol isolated from ethanolic leaf extract of Thuja occidentalis arrests the cell cycle at G2-M and induces ROS-independent apoptosis in A549 cells, targeting nuclear DNA.
Cell Prolif. 2014 Feb;47(1):56-71
Authors: Mukherjee A, Sikdar S, Bishayee K, Boujedaini N, Khuda-Bukhsh AR
Abstract
OBJECTIVES: The K-ras gene mutation commonly found in lung adenocarcinomas contributes to their non-invasive expansion. Our main objective here was to develop a chemopreventive agent against K-ras-mutated lung adenocarcinoma cell line like-A549.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: We isolated flavonol from ethanolic leaf extract of Thuja occidentalis[F7], and evaluated its apoptotic potentials on A549 cells. They were treated with 1-10 μg/ml of flavonol and viability was tested retaining normal lung cells L-132 as control. We performed assays such as TUNEL, annexin V, cell-cycle and mitochondrial membrane potentials, by FACS analysis. ROS-mediated oxidative stress and drug-DNA interactions were analysed along with gene expression studies for p53, Bax-Bcl2, cytochrome c, the caspase cascade genes and PARP.
RESULTS: Flavonol reduced A549 cell viability in a dose- and time-dependent manner (IC50 value = 7.6 ± 0.05 μg/ml following 48 h incubation) sparing normal L-132 cells. It effected G2-M phase cell cycle arrest and apoptosis, as indicated by progressive increase in the sub-G1, annexin V and TUNEL-positive cell populations. Apoptotic effects appeared to be mitochondria-dependent, caspase-3-mediated, but ROS-independent. Analysis of circular dichroism data revealed that flavonol intercalated [F8]with nuclear DNA. In vivo studies on non small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC)-induced mice confirmed anti-cancer potential of flavonol.
CONCLUSION: Flavonol-induced apoptosis apparently resulted from intercalation of cells’ nuclear DNA. Flavonol inhibited growth of induced lung tumours in the mice, indicating its potential as an effective agent against NSCLC.—PMID: 24267912 [PubMed – indexed for MEDLINE]

Autism-Causative Effects of Soy and Gliadin
Soy infant formula and seizures in children with autism- a retrospective study
Westmark CJ.
Author information
Abstract
Seizures are a common phenotype in many neurodevelopmental disorders including fragile X syndrome, Down syndrome and autism. We hypothesized that phytoestrogens in soy-based infant formula were contributing to lower seizure threshold in these disorders. Herein, we evaluated the dependence of seizure incidence on infant formula in a population of autistic children. Medical record data were obtained on 1,949 autistic children from the SFARI Simplex Collection. An autism diagnosis was determined by scores on the ADI-R and ADOS exams. The database included data on infant formula use, seizure incidence, the specific type of seizure exhibited and IQ. Soy-based formula was utilized in 17.5% of the study population. Females comprised 13.4% of the subjects. There was a 2.6-fold higher rate of febrile seizures [4.2% versus 1.6%, OR = 2.6, 95% CI = 1.3-5.3], a 2.1-fold higher rate of epilepsy comorbidity [3.6% versus 1.7%, OR = 2.2, 95% CI = 1.1-4.7] and a 4-fold higher rate of simple partial seizures [1.2% versus 0.3%, OR = 4.8, 95% CI = 1.0-23] in the autistic children fed soy-based formula. No statistically significant associations were found with other outcomes including: IQ, age of seizure onset, infantile spasms and atonic, generalized tonic clonic, absence and complex partial seizures. Limitations of the study included: infant formula and seizure data were based on parental recall, there were significantly less female subjects, and there was lack of data regarding critical confounders such as the reasons the subjects used soy formula, age at which soy formula was initiated and the length of time on soy formula. Despite these limitations, our results suggest that the use of soy-based infant formula may be associated with febrile seizures in both genders and with a diagnosis of epilepsy in males in autistic children. Given the lack of data on critical confounders and the retrospective nature of the study, a prospective study is required to confirm the association.
**************************************************************
Study Suggests Link Between Soy Formula and Seizures in Autistic Children
Cara Westmark
Madison, Wisconsin – A University of Wisconsin-Madison researcher has detected a higher rate of seizures among children with autism who were fed infant formula containing soy protein rather than milk protein.—“This needs to be studied more thoroughly. If soy formula is lowering the threshold for seizures or increasing the incidence of seizures, we need to know that.”- The study found excess seizures among girls and in the total sample of 1,949 children. The soy-seizure link reached borderline significance among boys, who comprised 87 percent of the children described in the database under study.—Seizures – caused by uncontrolled electrical currents in the brain – occur in many neurological disorders including epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, Down syndrome and autism.—About 25 percent of infant formula sold in the United States is based on soy protein.[F9] Study author Cara Westmark, a senior scientist in the Department of Neurology at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health, says her investigation was sparked by mouse studies of a drug that, it was hoped, would inhibit seizures by blocking signals that excite nerve cells. “It was pure serendipity that we happened to look at soy,” she says. To simplify the mouse study, she replaced the standard lab chow, which had a variable composition, with a diet containing purified ingredients. Unexpectedly, that diet reduced the rate of seizures by 50 percent compared to standard chow, Westmark says. “We were intrigued that a dietary alteration was as effective as many medicines in reducing seizure incidence and wanted to pursue that finding,” she says. “We found that the main difference between the diets was the protein source. The standard diet was soy-based, while the purified diet was casein, or dairy, based.”—The mechanism of action is unknown, but Westmark points to the high level of plant-derived estrogens in soy products as a possible cause of the excess seizures.
Prevalance of Seizures Small But Significant
People eat a lot of soy products, and when Westmark began to look for the effect in people, she decided to focus on infants, who may consume nothing but formula. Knowing that people with autism have a higher rate of seizures, Westmark turned to a database from the Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative.—And that led to the new study, published today in the journal PLOS ONE, which showed that children with autism who were fed soy formula had 2.6 times as many febrile seizures as the children fed non-soy formula in the database. That means 4.2 percent of the soy group had a seizure associated with a fever, compared to 1.6 percent of the others.–To put it another way, the vast majority of both groups did not have seizures.—“This is not saying that all autistic children who eat soy-based formula are going to develop seizures,” says Westmark.–And yet that increase is worrying, Westmark says. –“The prevalence of autism is increasing and currently affects one American child in 88,” she says. “Soy is a widespread ingredient in many food products and 25 percent of infant formulas are soy based, so this is something that needs to be studied. If the child is lactose intolerant, there are alternatives that a pediatrician can recommend.”—-

[F10] Immune response to dietary proteins, gliadin and cerebellar peptides in children with autism.
Vojdani A1, O’Bryan T, Green JA, Mccandless J, Woeller KN, Vojdani E, Nourian AA, Cooper EL.
Author information
Abstract
The mechanisms behind autoimmune reaction to nervous system antigens in autism are not understood. We assessed the reactivity of sera from 50 autism patients and 50 healthy controls to specific peptides from gliadin and the cerebellum. A significant percentage of autism patients showed elevations in antibodies against gliadin and cerebellar peptides simultaneously. For examining cross-reaction between dietary proteins and cerebellar antigens, antibodies were prepared in rabbits, and binding of rabbit anti-gliadin, anti-cerebellar peptides, anti-MBP, anti-milk, anti-egg, anti-soy and anti-corn to either gliadin- or cerebellar-antigen-coated wells was measured. In comparison to anti-gliadin peptide binding to gliadin peptide at 100%, the reaction of anti-cerebellar peptide to gliadin peptide was 22%, whereas the binding of anti-myelin basic protein (MBP), anti-milk, anti-egg and anti-soy to gliadin was less than 10%. Further examination of rabbit anti-gliadin (EQVPLVQQ) and anti-cerebellar (EDVPLLED) 8 amino acid (AA) peptides with human serum albumin (HSA) and an unrelated peptide showed no binding, but the reaction of these antibodies with both the cerebellar and gliadin peptides was greater than 60%. This cross-reaction was further confirmed by DOT-immunoblot and inhibition studies. We conclude that a subgroup of patients with autism produce antibodies against Purkinje cells and gliadin peptides, which may be responsible for some of the neurological symptoms in autism.
