Dr Oz: Does Stress Turn Hair Gray?
Dr Oz’s first myth to tackle was whether or not stress turns your hair gray. There seems to be compelling evidence for this claim, since Obama and just about every other president to get into office gets more and more gray hair while they serve. But as it turns out, there is no scientific proof yet that can tie stress to gray hair. Science Bob said that the cause of Gray Hair is actually a chemistry battle between Hydrogen Peroxide which is found naturally in your hair and another enzyme that keeps your hair from turning gray. Dr Oz showed an image of a hair follicle and at the base is a cell that squeeze pigment into the hair to give it a color. If this cell gets damaged, then the pigment stops being injected. Science Bob believes that if we can understand how Hydrogen Peroxide influences our hair exactly, we could cure the problem of gray hair forever!
