HOW TO STAY HEALTHY... DON'T CUT YOUR HAIR
DailyExpress ^ | April 6,2009

Posted on 04/06/2009 1:11:56 PM PDT by Daffynition

A doctor claims his patients remain healthy because he does not cut his hair.

The medic, 79, made the link between healing patients and not trimming his locks more than 60 years ago.

Traditional Chinese medicine practitioner Peng Fu said: "I stopped cutting my hair and people started to get better."

"My medicine became more effective the longer I let my hair grow. Now I will never cut it."

The hirsute healer now has to carry his eight-pound mane rolled up in a bag on his back, according to the Austrian Times. It stretched nearly nine feet the last time he measured.

The doctor, from Suining in central China, takes his healing very seriously. He doesn't allow patients to touch his tresses and rarely washes them.

"My medicine became more effective the longer I let my hair grow.

Or maybe with age you gained experience. Then again it could be the hair.

If that’s being healthy, no thanks. I think I’d rather excercise and watch what I eat.

This guy is healthy because no other humans want to come in contact with him or his giant bag of hair.

This is pretty hard to believe. Normal hair typically falls out, or breaks off, after four years or so, so even hair that has never been cut is not going to grow much longer than it can in four years. There are some people whose hair grows incredibly fast who might have hair below waist level, but that’s rare Guinness Book of world records type of event.

Given that the maximum length a male can wear his hair in my beloved Corps is 3" (and most of us wear it shorter than that) and the vast majority are exceptionaly healthy, I call BS.

The headline is wrong.

We can all become healthy if this quack doesn’t cut his hair.

It could be that he’s got his hair all matted and tied up that the stuff that would normally fall out is too entwined. But, yeah, hair does fall out after a period of time and it’s a rarity if it manages to grow quickly enough to reach below the waste.

Crystal Gayle, Loretta Lynn’s sister, had hair nearly to the floor.

They weren't healthier. They just went to the clean cut doctor across town but didn't have the heart to tell Dr. Funky Hair why they weren't seeing him anymore.

Yeah, it looks as if it’s pretty matted, so the bundle of hair probably contains mostly fallen-out strands. And it looks as if some of his hair doesn’t grow all that long anymore since he has all that shag around his face. Poor guy.
