Important News

At least for me. The AFP reports:

LONDON (AFP) - In a finding that could help treat an inherited form of baldness, a research team in Manchester claims to have discovered a protein "code" that instructs cells to sprout hair.

By sending the code to more cells than usual, the scientists at the University of Manchester say they were able to breed mice with more fur -- a feat that could potentially be replicated in humans.
If they could figure out a way to confine the hair growth to my scalp (and not, say, my back) this could be very helpful for me in about eight years or so...
