When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle. -Edmond Burke

As the pioneer in the field of consumer hair loss education, Spencer Kobren has earned vast public support as well as industry recognition for his efforts as both an effective activist, and as a hair loss consumer/patient advocate.

Unfortunately, championing a cause that exposes the truth about the vast majority of an industry that thrives on the vulnerability of desperate men, women and children, comes at a price.

Soon after the publication of Kobren’s first book, The Bald Truth, (Pocket Books, April 1998), leading factions of the hair loss industry responded to Kobren’s criticisms by attempting to destroy his public image and to silence him. A campaign of harassment and intimidation began in an effort to stifle the truth for hair loss consumers that sadly continues to some extent to this day.

Kobren and his consumer advocacy organizations are still the target of vicious online and offline character attacks from industry insiders whose livelihoods have been put at risk due to Kobren’s reporting of the truth.

Fortunately, consumers and online researchers are becoming savvier and seem to recognize the diversion schemes that many of these ruthless, unethical snake oil salesman, and hair loss practitioners are concocting.

Remember, it’s important for YOU, the consumer, to ALWAYS do your due diligence when researching any product, service, or physician. Check and recheck the sources and understand that the Internet can be a cesspool of inaccurate, deceptive and down right dangerous information geared to mislead the public into believing whatever it is that drives a particular agenda.

In 1999 in an attempt to silence the truth, controversial hair transplant surgeons Dr. Gary Hitzig, M.D. and John P. Schwinning, M.D. sued Spencer Kobren and the six of the ten radio stations that aired his national hair loss support broadcast. As is typically the case when absolute truth is your defense, Kobren prevailed and continues to fight for consumers to have the knowledge they need to make truly informed decisions in this incredibly treacherous industry.

Caveat Emptor “Let the buyer beware.”
