THE PRESENCE OF ANTIOXIDANTS IN THE HAIR INFUNDIBULUM IMPLICATIONS IN HAIR DISEASES SUCH AS ALOPECIA
1 MBA, 13442 SW 102 Lane Miami, Florida 33186, USA
Anatomically, as a rule the hair in mammals consists of an unseen follicle or root anchored into the skin with a shaft or visible hair exiting exteriorly. As a note of interest, the hair follicle has been described as a miniorgan having its own cells division, metabolism, and aging stages Schneider et al. (2009). As previously stated, “metabolism entails electron transfers in both plants (photosynthesis) and animals (cellular respiration) involving movement of electrons from donor to acceptor along the electron transfer chain thus inducing a current within each cell and from cell to cell” Embi et al. (2015), Scherlag et al. (2016). This continuity of energy transfer in living organisms is at the very essence of life; and is ubiquitously present in all living matter and the generator of Bioelectricity (a.k.a. electromagnetic radiation), the protein enzyme catalase having an essential pivotal role in energy production in the breakdown of toxic materials such as H2O2 into H2O and O2 molecules. During the breakdown of O2 molecules energy is generated. When catalase is depleted life ends and regional death occurs Embi (2018), Levin (2014). We could then theorize that if cell respiration ceases throughout the entire organism (organs) death ensues Embi (2018). Only in living tissue is that elimination of toxic material such as H2O2 has any relevance.

Keywords: Exogenous Material Entering the Hair/Shaft Skin Cavity, and The Presence of Antioxidants
Now that we have established that antioxidants are the essence of life, is time to introduce In Vitro experiments inferring the presence of said antioxidants at the hair/shaft/skin junction and their possible implications. Prior In Vitro experiments by this author has shown the prevalence of bioelectrical crosstalk amongst human tissues, namely the hair and blood Embi (2018). The presence of antioxidants in the hair/shaft skin junction could be also classified as a facilitator of bioelectrical crosstalk between exogenous matter causing diseases such as mites and bacteria or chemicals entering the most proximal distal hair area at the skin/shaft junction or Infundibulum as shown in Figure 1, Figure 2, Figure 3 plus videos.
“The hair root is in the skin and extends down to the deeper layers of the skin. It is surrounded by the hair follicle (a sheath of skin and connective tissue) National Library of Medicine (2019).

3. DEMONSTRATION OF THE PRESENCE OF ANTIOXIDANTS IN THE HAIR INFUNDIBULUM
The attraction of H2O2 molecules in water being attracted into the hair infundibulum, them broken down by antioxidants in the infundibulum into H2O2 and O2 molecules. Figure below showing O2 molecules exiting hair.

4. HUMAN HAIR HAIR BIOELECTRIC IMPRINT
4.1. PLEASE NOTICE DIFFERENCE WHEN COMPARING WITH EXHIBIT I
Figure 3 Scattered Bioelectrical Activity in Infundibulum
Figure 3 Distal hair bioelectric magnetic imprint showing scattered bioelectrical activity in infundibulum. X: Notice scattered bioelectric activity in area surrounded by red lines (infundibulum). This activity is in support of the presence of antioxidants.
How to obtain a bioelectrical imprint of the hair is fully explained by linking to:

5. THE QUESTIONS ARISE:
1) Why are microbes and parasites attracted to the human hair shaft/skin junction? Are antioxidants attracting parasites?
2) Does the presence of a Biolectromagnetic environment is a factor in the attraction?
3) Is hair follicle inflammation as in alopecia caused by microorganisms reacting to antioxidants present in the infundibulum? After all some diseases such as esophageal reflux are caused by helicobacter pylori.
4) Further research is highly recommended!!
