Forget expensive hair loss treatments. Millions go without quality health care, clean drinking water and hygienic food. At the same time, the growing affluence is bringing less-healthy Western diets to the more affluent who are also losing their hair.
Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (PRWEB) October 07, 2011
HairLoss.com, the world’s most comprehensive website providing unbiased information to consumers about hair loss conditions and their treatment, has published an in-depth feature report exploring hair loss conditions in South Asia.
According to its spokesman, the five-part feature is the latest in a series of investigative reports published by the influential website “to allow readers a deeper understanding of what it means to suffer hair loss and to be seeking treatment in one of the most economically depressed regions in the world.”
Written and researched by HairLoss.com feature writers Russ Klettke and Kori Ellis, the multi-part series focuses on the shared cultural significance of hair in a region of diverse ethnicities, languages and religions. Causes of hair loss are thoroughly explored in relation to the harsh economic conditions where 40% of the region’s population lives in poverty.
“The fact that South Asia is home to twenty percent of the world’s population accounts for the high numbers of appeals sent in to our Concierge service seeking help,” explains Michael Garcia, spokesman for HairLoss.com. “The numbers are so large that our curiosity forced us to investigate so that we could better understand what is happening and how we could better advise and assist.”
Explored in depth are concerns specific to the countries that comprise South Asia including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Iran, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
“In South Asia, as anywhere else, heredity, hormones, stress, diet and disease can each cause hair loss,” explains lead writer Klettke. “But we’re talking about a region where almost half of the population lives on less that $1.25 per day. Forget expensive hair replacement or hair transplant surgery. Millions go without quality health care, clean drinking water and hygienic food. At the same time, the growing affluence of the region is bringing a different kind of stress and less-healthy Western diets to the more affluent who are also losing their hair.”
Klettke, who with Ellis spent three months investigating this series, is HairLoss.com’s principal health writer, covering topics related to nutrition, fitness and wellbeing and is an author of a popular book on men’s nutrition. Ellis is an oft-published freelance feature writer and editor and contributes fashion and beauty articles to HairLoss.com.
“Aside from our normal efforts to educate the pubic about the opportunities and limitations of hair loss treatments and to make referrals, HairLoss.com strives to produce original and interesting journalistic stories that matter,” said Garcia. “This investigation is in accord with our brand’s core values: It is complete and true, compassionate and informative.”
“With our growing understanding of these realities, HairLoss.com hopes to develop products and services that are tailored specifically to the needs of men and women of South Asia who are suffering from hair loss; programs that are both effective and affordable.”
