Scientists Get to the Root of those Greys

Dreading those tell-tale greys? Listen up: In what's considered to be a major breakthrough, British researchers have finally figured out what causes grey hair (and it's not your mother-in-law). It's pretty simple, actually - grey hair is caused by a build-up of hydrogen peroxide at the roots. Yep, you read that right, it's the same stuff that bottle-blondes use to lighten their locks!

What makes this study so special? Well, now that the cause of the "problem" has been uncovered, researchers can start working to find a solution! Expect new discoveries for interventions or reversal of the greying process in the coming future.

But on a serious note, if you think that grey hair alone will give away your age, think again. Nothing screams youth like dull skin, poor posture and loose teeth! Bottom line - if you want to look and feel younger for life, take good care of yourself now with a healthy lifestyle including eating right (that's where NIM fits in!) and exercising. The secret is out!
