Dandruff – A deadly disease
Dandruff is a health disorder which affects almost everyone. Young or old, male or female, dandruff spares no one. In fact, many studies estimate that dandruff affects more than 90% of the world population. Despite being so prevalent, dandruff never received the kind of serious attention it truly deserves until now. In fact, majority of people don’t even consider dandruff as a disease, but rather as ‘an insignificant condition’ with no harmful effects. It’s only in the past couple of decades that the science community has started to give more attention to this ‘apparently harmless’ condition. Years of dedicated research on dandruff from top niche scientists across the world has unraveled a completely different story about dandruff, which is shocking to say the least.
What is Dandruff ?
Dandruff is a disease which is caused by the tiny micro-organisms of bacteria and fungi that are present on our scalp. These microbes live and feed off our skin and in the process they produce many toxins which harm our skin, causing it to shed and produce white flakes of dead skin. Contrary to the popular belief, dead skin flakes falling from hairs is not dandruff. The flakes are just a symptom of this disease.
Here is a short list of the major species that inhabit our scalps:
- Malassezia species
- Candida albicans
- Staphylococcus aureus
- Streptococcus species
- Acinetobacter species
- Cryptococcus neoformans
How dangerous are these micro-organisms that live on our scalp ?
Extremely dangerous. These microbes are toxic, and they release a huge variety of toxins on our skin.
As proven by numerous scientific studies, these toxins have the capability to wreak havoc on our bodies by disrupting the metabolic processes in our body which are vital for our overall health. These toxins have been shown to be associated with literally all the diseases that affect humans – be it neurological, cardiovascular, respiratory, circulatory, skin or any other disease one can possibly imagine.
Being extremely small, these toxins easily accommodate in the roots of our hairs, which are directly connected to the body’s blood supply. By a process called as ‘trans-follicular delivery’, which means penetrating through the hair roots, these toxins enter the blood supply of our bodies. Not only these toxins, but the microbes which secrete them also have powerful penetrating capabilities, meaning that these microbes also find ways to cross the epidermal barrier of our skin and enter our bodies.
