Fighting Sexual Harassment the Old Fashioned Way

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — Rudolph @

Ever since the “women’s lib” movement, a strange phenomenon has occurred in American culture. That phenomenon is sexual harassment cases.

Women, offended by vulgar behavior of men, have taken their disgust with crude male behavior all the way to court.

From the infamous Anita Hill trial to Paula Jones and even a female General in the Army, there has been an explosion of sexual harassment cases made by women in the past decade.

Indeed, these sexual harassment cases have transcended race, culture, and political ideology. The only common theme among them has been this: men, somewhere, were vulgar, and the women they hit on didn’t like it.

It is clear, women nowhere like the vulgar behavior and crude comments associated with too many men. Women of all types, be they white or black, liberal or conservative, religious or non-religious, have rejected the objectifying behavior of many men—and, for the most part, appropriately so.

Finasteride For Hair Loss Treatment

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — Rudolph @

Some of the people just choose to accept it. Other people fight it. Losing hair and going bald is something many people experience as they age. About 25% of the male population starts to go bald by 25 years of age. Men are far more prone to losing their hair than women. Due to the social stigma of female baldness, however, the issue can be much more serious for women. While technological discovery has elevated our lives, a true cure for hair loss has not yet been fully realized. Although medical science has provided explanations for a great many of our maladies, scientists have not yet elucidated all of the causes of hair loss. Research indicates that hair loss is inherited, but the only remedies for it involve medications or surgical treatment.

Two FDA-approved drugs provide the best shot at slowing hair loss, and even gaining new hair growth. Minoxidil should be applied to the scalp on a daily basis. A significant percentage of men and women who use minoxidil enjoy a slowed rate of hair loss. To a lesser extent, some people will experience some hair regrowth, although how much will depend on age and other factors. Although effective for both men and women, the treatment must be used on a daily basis or the hair loss will promptly resume. The primary ingredient found in Rogaine is Minoxidil. Once-daily Rogaine treatment regimens cost over two hundred dollars per year.

Finasteride is the only other drug that the FDA has approved to treat hair loss. Propecia is a pill that must be taken daily in order to work, and it contains the active ingredient Finasteride. Research indicates that taking this drug will inhibit further hair loss, and about one-third of all users may actually achieve some hair regrowth. This medication was used initially to treat male prostate conditions. Many physicians recommend combining the two products into one treatment regimen. (more…)
