Coffee: A Cure For Baldness?

Coffee and other caffeinated beverages could be a key factor in curing baldness, that's according to German researchers who say they've discovered that caffeine blocks a chemical known to damage hair follicles. At least it works in the lab and that's good news in that it may pave the way for more research that could be hair-raising someday.

But for now, don't try this at home. When you consider the amount of caffeine these scientists were using, it would take 60 cups of coffee a day to save your hair and that would be a bad idea, for a lot of reasons.
