Dr. Rassman, I came across this interesting article. It talks about how there are DHT precursors in milk. What’s up with that??!
Could milk at all contribute to the balding process? Sure it might not cause baldness, but is it reasonable to believe that it could have an adverse effect on our hair growth?
Essentially, whatever the cow ate will be in the cow’s milk. The milking cow that is in high milk production will have considerable hormones circulating in her blood stream normally. The milk that “contains placenta-derived progesterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT) precursors” will flow to the milk drinker. If the farmer put steroids in the cow as well, then you could get those into your system and any of these could potentially cause hair loss.
Now I’m not trying to cause a mass panic and tell people to swear off milk or dairy. The article that you provided the link to discusses what may be in the milk, but this has never been studied scientifically to my knowledge. I guess that there is not much money in studying it.
