A BOY was banned from his school playground because of his "extreme" haircut prompting his mum to slam the school as "culturally biased". Josiah Sharpe, five, lost his play times at Summerhill Primary Academy, Tipton, until his hair grew back to a satisfactory length.

Health Alopecia food poisoning In what scientists believe is a world first, two women have suffered alopecia triggered by a toxic chemical in pumpkins and squash. Each case involved women eating bitter-tasting cucurbits, the plant family which the fruits are a part of. One woman suffered food poisoning after eating a meal containing a bitter-tasting squash. While her fellow diners didn’t eat the fruit because of its strange taste, she vomited severely for hours after the meal. Around three weeks later, clumps of hair fell out of her head, armpits and pubic region. A farmer inspects a pumpkin that has grown on his farm at Lyburn Farm, England, October 22, 2014. A new study has suggested a link between a chemical in pumpkins and alopecia.
