Hair Loss (Definition)

Hair loss, otherwise known as alopecia, can be caused by different reasons, including damage to the hair shaft or follicles or fungal infections. There are two main types of alopecia.

Can taken a sleeping tablet every night make your hair fall out... Stillnot sleeping tablets? And can they affect your memory in the long term

Hmmmm: What kind of sleeping tablets are you taking? Sounds unlikely.

It was hoped that it would be a wonder antioxidant, but in the big studies, people randomized to receive big doses had no clear health benefits and somewhat increased mortality.
