Question about alopecia and fungal infections?

by Kathy
(New Jersey)

I've been researching alopecia for a friend who's grandson has had it since 6 months old. I think it has something to do with glyphosate in the family yard, plus metals in vaccines. I also understand hormones have something to do with it, (explaining metal influence). I wonder if there is any connection with Malassezia or other fungal infections.

Hi Kathy,

If Malasseezia was causing the hair loss it would be clearly visible on the skin. He would show signs of dandruff, flaky skin, it would itch and show signs of inflammation.

If he had tinea, a different type of fungus that infects the skin, he would suffer from redness, itchiness, irritation, burning, and it could cause hair loss.

Any primary care doctor should be able to diagnose these infections and prescribe the appropriate medications to get it under control.

As far as glyphosate having any effect, are you aware that most wheat products in the US do contain Roundup residue? On this webpage about Roundup you will find more information about this problem.

Many vaccines contain aluminum adjuvants and a few contain Thimerosal. According to the CDC, "Thimerosal contains ethylmercury, which is cleared from the human body more quickly than methylmercury, and is therefore less likely to cause any harm". However, mercury is a hormone disruptor and 25% of the population does have a problem detoxing themselves of mercury. You could determine if this is a problem for him by either doing a urine challenge test or hair test for heavy metals.

Any other questions let me know.
