Study lays ‘the groundwork for understanding how stress affects other tissues and organs in the body’, researcher statesThe actor was renowned for her closely-shaven buzzcut, donned for V for Vendetta...

Alamy The team discovered that the release of noradrenaline caused the MeSCs to “move away” from the hair follicles, thus making the hair go grey as a consequence. Dr Ya-Chieh Hsu, a professor of regenerative biology at Harvard and a senior author on the study, said the study lays “the groundwork for understanding how stress affects other tissues and organs in the body”. “Understanding how our tissues change under stress is the first critical step towards eventual treatment that can halt or revert the detrimental impact of stress,” Dr Hsu said, adding: “We still have a lot to learn in this area.” Read more Bad sleep ‘can increase emotional stress levels by up to a third’ In addition to assessing the impact of the release of the neurotransmitter noradrenaline, the researchers also found that when the mice were exposed to stress in their experiments, a specific gene caused a protein called CDK to encode. When the mice were injected with a drug which hinders the encoding of CDK, this prevented their fur from turning white. Dr Thiago Mattar Cunha, a co-author of the study and a researcher with the Centre for Research on Inflammatory Diseases in Sao Paulo, Brazil, explained the significance of this discovery. “This finding shows that CDK participates in the process and could, therefore, be a therapeutic target,” Dr Cunha stated “It’s too soon to know whether it will actually become a target some day in clinical practice, but it’s worth exploring further.” The researchers said that while their findings may not provide a cure for , it is significant in helping to understand how stress impacts various areas of the body.

DYING YOUR HAIR TURNS IT BACK SADISTIC SCIENTISTS: sacrifice of mice contributed to huge step on humanity enlightenment on their grey hair origin SADISTIC SCIENTISTS submitted mice to electric shocks and other stress techniques to find out grey hair is caused by stress I went grey in literally 6 months down one side of my hair because of the stress my Dads death caused. Why didn't they just ask people instead of wasting a load of money on pointless scientific research? That money could be spent on something more important imo.

Why stress really does turn your hair grey, according to scienceStress is seemingly responsible for so many ills.

Greta Thunberg told to study economics by US treasury secretarySteven Mnuchin takes swipe at activist’s call for immediate fossil fuel divestment This is pretty laughable - seems like he wants a headline - riding on Greta's coat-tails. Also - is it Greta that needs to study economics, or Mnuchin? Seems pretty ignorant on how that trade war is going...
