19 – Whey protein, fat burners, creatine, gym supplements, all cause hair loss.
It is a general misunderstanding that whey protein can help in hair growth. Whey protein is made from spoilt milk, which is chemically split to yield the whey. This whey is then separated from rest of the milk components through further chemical processes. The isolated whey is purified and dried into a powder. Fungus, bacteria can immediately feast on this protein, thus, anti fungal, anti bacterial, pesticides are added to stabilize the protein and increase the shelf life to more than a year. All these additives, preservatives, anti fungals etc. play havoc with sensitive hair roots causing hair loss. You can have friends who take whey protein and do not have hair loss because they are born with different kind of hair roots. If you have hair loss, you must avoid whey protein, creatine, fat burners, gym supplements and fad diets.
