Does lead content in water promote hair loss?

 
 
Mon 2 Mar, 2009 05:17 pm
Hi,
A friend of mine has been losing hair a lot lately, and he says that it is because some amount of lead is used in the water purification process, and this lead content promotes hair loss. I am not sure if that is true, since i have not been having any hair loss problems. But i would like to know if there is any truth in his reasoning. Any ideas?

Any amount of lead in water is bad.

Use a Multi-Pure drinking water filter.

@webknight18,
You should tell your friend to visit a professional doctor.

Lead promotes hair loss. It is responsible for hair thinning.

@webknight18,
That's why always drink lead-free water.

@webknight18,
Lead poisoning, among many other things, can also cause hair loss. Water traveling from old lead pipes to the shower head may be a prescription for hair loss. Zinc is also a contributor. ... There are also literally ways to poison your hair: traces of arsenic and thallium in water can also cause hair to fall out.
