We know that obesity is a combination of many diseases, including heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes. But now it is known that the habit of eating chicken food not only makes you fat but it can also be harmful to your hair.
A report was recently published in the weekly scientific journal Nature. The Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDU) conducted some experiments on rats. Their research has shown that fat-rich foods or genetically modified obesity can cause thinning hair. Momentary foods begin to deplete the most important hair growth stem cells (HFSCs). This causes inflammation, slows down the growth of hair from the roots, and stops the growth of hair.
We know that HFSC is very important for hair follicles. Follicles play an important role in hair growth and are also affected by grease. This increases the risk of baldness in obese people. But it will take more time to find out the detailed scientific reason for the damage to hair caused by obesity and eating chicken.
Experiments on mice have shown that genetically obese or eating fatty foods makes their hair thinner and gradually makes them bald. In the mice that were given the fat, the HFSC changed negatively and their hair started falling out faster.
When a rat was fed a high-fat diet for four consecutive days, its stem cells began to weaken. On the other hand, they have increased oxidative stress, which is harmful to the hair.
