Blue's Clues' Host Steve Left For A Reason You'll Never Expect!

blues clues host steve left because why find out the reason here

It's hard to say goodbye.

Especially to your hair!

Blue's Clues was one of the most successful shows on the Nickelodeon network from 1996-2006, and even today it's remembered as an amazing experience for anyone who watched the show growing up.

That's why it was SO shocking when the super popular host Steve Burns left the show seemingly out of nowhere in 2002. For a while no one was sure what the real reason was for his departure, and many speculated that he was either on drugs or even dead!

But in an interview for the show's ten-year special called Behind the Clues: 10 Years with Blue, the very much alive and sober Steve revealed the hair-raising truth, and it had to do with the loss of his hair!

Dogs May Help Bald Men Regrow Their Hair

Filed under: Science!DogAmazing

A cure for baldness might be able to borrow from how dogs' winter coats come in.

The hair growth is triggered by hormones and signals coming from elsewhere in the body.

Those signals vary with the seasons.

A researcher said:

"The hair-follicle stem cell is not only listening to the voice in the stem cell, but also the voice from outside."

So instead of using stem cells, they may be able to alter the environment around the hair follicles that allows them to receive the outside signals.

"This extra follicle-affecting factor has disappeared during human evolution.

To deal with the hair growth, you not only try to help the stem cell, but you can improve the 'soil,' like — You put a tulip bulb in a nicer soil, you will grow a nicer hair."

So not only are dogs cute, but they could help bald men to get their hair back!

We love dogs!!
