I know what I'm having for lunch...every day!

Good evening everyone,

Sorry I'm so late today-I was in Osaka all day. It's supposed to be nice tomorrow...in fact, they are now saying that rainy season is over here in Hiroshima and we can expect hot, sunny weather all week this week. Highs will hover between 31C and 33C with overnight lows around 24C.

Add spice to your life – and hair – at the same time!

Curry is available everywhere in Japan, from kids’ restaurants to fast food places to high-end restaurants. Many grocery stores even have whole aisles devoted to instant curry of all different flavors, just like cereal aisles in the U.S. For whatever reason, this originally Indian dish underwent a Japanese transformation, and is now super popular all over the country.

But there’s one other thing Japan and India have in common besides a love for delicious curry: a low percentage of male baldness.

According to a survey carried out by a major Japanese wig maker, Japan ranked 14th in the list of countries with the highest percentage of male baldness. Western countries littered the top slots, with America’s baldness rate more than double Japan’s, and India didn’t even crack the top 20.

The reason behind this? Japanese nutritionist Yoshiko Nakagawa says that the cause is curry. The mixture of spices found in curry such as turmeric, saffron, nutmeg, and capsaicin are good for the body’s metabolism and blood circulation, which is known to encourage hair growth.

Alternative medicines have proven to be effective in many situations, but have also been pretty ridiculous in others, so take that for what you will.

Ok...so the message is...eat curry three times a day. Got it!

Well maybe I'm not 100-percent convinced of the findings, but hey, another excuse to eat more curry can never be a bad thing!

Have a great night!
