A 29-year-old male asked:
Can protein powders such as optimum nutrition 100% whey protein cause hair loss or thinning if consuming? thanks

Protein powders are: not associated w/hair loss but your age and sex MAY be the issue i.e., 29 y.o. male. A full head of hair is nice but please don't associate your likability with that. Focus on more substantial aspects of who you are. Peace and good health.
