Scientists are closer to a cure for baldness. This is good news for millions of bald people worldwide. Researchers have been developing stem cells that can grow new hair. Their technique has been successful in growing hair in a natural way. The research has overcome key challenges. A researcher said: "We have a robust, highly controlled method for generating natural-looking hair that grows through the skin using...human stem cells."

Baldness affects about half of men by the age of 50. Hair replacement products and transplants are a multi-billion-dollar industry. Transplant surgery can cost $50,000. Hair loss starts in men in their early twenties. This causes a loss of self-confidence. Men worry about receding hairlines and bald spots. Baldness is also a problem for women. Many women have thinning hair later in life. A doctor said hair loss greatly affected people's lives.
