Laser Phototherapy Hairbrush


From websites:

    Phototherapy Hairbrush

    Employing the same proven photobiostimulation therapy used in scientists' labs and in salons for more than 20 years, this lightweight handheld device helps revitalize tired locks for fuller, more lustrous hair.

    The light energy produced by its safe, low-level laser and four LEDs penetrates scalp tissue to promote increased circulation, resulting in more oxygen and nutrients getting supplied to hair follicles.

    Equally effective on men and women, simply "brushing" for three 15-minute sessions per week promotes thicker, more vibrant hair, with users typically seeing results in 8-16 weeks.

    A built-in timer frees you from tracking session time and automatically shuts off the hairbrush after 15 minutes.

    Two AAA batteries provide convenient cordless operation for up to 6 months.

    The laser and LEDs are rated for 10 years of service.

    8"L x 2"W x 1-1/2"D.




But why pay less?

Heck, if you like you can drop nearly $500 for the same kind of thing.

bookofjoe enters Wikio Top 200


An anonymous reader sent me a link this morning to Wikio's website — "Live breaking news from 35,522 blogs" — where it appears I have moved onto the main page (above), if only by the skin of my virtual teeth.

You could look it up.

Maybe I'll even wake up my dormant crack research team to share the good news with them.

Maybe not.

Onward and mos def

Margaret McCartney's favorite science joke of 2008 (mine too)


In her final Financial Times blog post of 2008, the Glasgow-based GP and Financial Times columnist wrote:

    My favourite science joke of 2008 (courtesy of my eldest son)

    One atom says to the other atom: I think I’ve lost an electron.

    Other atom: Are you sure?

    First atom: I’m positive.


You could do worse than stay up with Dr. McCartney's observations, if only for their refreshingly tart dismissals of so much that's proffered as "truth" when it comes to the art — and it remains far more an art than a science in the year 2009, trust me on this — of medicine.

More — much, much more — about electrons and the graphic that leads this post right here.
