Beards Keep You Young, Healthy & Handsome, Says Science

April 15, 2013 5:25 pm 44 comments Views: 8188

Gentlemen, they’re not just for hipsters and the homeless any more. While both dead sexy and totally awesome, beards are also a boon to your overall health. Researchers discovered that men with beards and moustaches actually enjoy numerous benefits including, but not limited to, instant handsomeness.

A study from the University of Southern Queensland, published in the Radiation Protection Dosimetry journal, found that beards block 90 to 95 percent of UV

brays, thereby slowing the aging process and reducing the risk of skin cancer. Got asthma? Pollens and dust simply get stuck in that lustrous facial hair. Additionally, all that hair retains moisture and protects against the wind, keeping you looking young and fresh-faced. What’s more, shaving is usually the cause of ingrown hairs and bacterial infections that lead to acne.

Have you tossed your razor in the trash yet?

To conduct the study, researchers left bearded mannequins, along with less attractive, follically-challenged ones, in the blistering sun of the Australian outback and then compared the amount of radiation absorbed by each.

But don’t forget to take care of those blessed follicles; beards can also spread infection if not properly cared for and make consumption of certain foods (e.g. cheeseburgers, corn on the cob, falafel sandwiches—anything with hummus actually, bagel ‘n’ schmear, syrupy pancakes) rather laborious. Fuzzy-faced men would be wise to take advantage of beard wash and beard oil, essential tools for looking and feeling your beardy best.

    “Never bring a mustache to a beard fight.”

    Says QURAN (islam) 1400 years ago :)

    • Noble Earl

      Not in the Qur’an but you can find it in Hadeet (Muhammad’s saying).

    for years you kaafirs have been saying muslims are dirty for having beards and we look messy, we dont get jobs cos of the beard, we get picked on at airports, laughed at in the street, yet you now decide you wanna make it a fashion and now its soooo cooool, everyone wants one, women included. We always said when debating non muslims that it makes you look more manly, handsome and is healthy and natural, you said we are idiots. Well now, now you wanna praise it you come up with all the scientific evidence. Islam is the truth, and you know it. Islam is correct on every issue it mentions. Now if men have no beard they are looked at as being homosexuals, not true men, this is what we have said for hundreds of years.

      beards keeps one young? FOOLISHNESS. the ugliest and the dirtiest,maybe.

      • eye for an Eye

        There is thing called Faith.
        we don’t need support of science to convince ourselves or others.
        ya all go to hell. I don’t give a damn about you ass licker animals.

    • Elf

      Having a beard doesnt mean you have to believe in bunk, Dude.

      • Muslim

        Slowly you kafirs will realize the truth but will still deny it, but won’t be able to lie to yourself.

        • Chilens

          You will die and disappear, no god, no heaven, nothing… I don’t think that a gorup of people that fuck goats and hit womans have the “true”… Why why! We have muslims in this world! I always try to be tolerant, bueno cant handle muslims and your stupid ala.

    • American

      Fuck Islam.

      • Muslim

        God Damn you and all the enemies of Islam. Amen.

        • American

          This is ironic, and shows jusy how much you pay attention. A muslim asks “God” to damn the enemies of Islam? Islam MAKES IT’S OWN enemies! Additionally, just because someone isn’t Muslim, doesn’t mean they believe in God. You Muslims are SO uneducated.

          • India belongs to Indians

            Yeah great, look at educated man’s language!
            But to me you look like an educated illiterate…

    • America

      You Fucker Islamist……….Tke Khans in Bollywood has also ne beards……..Muslims are always Terrorists who fuck there sisters also…………

      Why do you have to turn an innocent article about beards into one about religion filled with hate? The Qu’ran itself says that religion doesn’t matter, so long as you believe and do good deeds.

      “Verily, those who believe and those who are Jews and Christians and Sabians, whosoever believeth in God and the Last Day and does righteous deeds shall have their reward with the Lord, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.” Al-Baqarah 2:62

      “Let there be no compulsion in religion” Al-Baqarah 2:256

      (Also there is no where in the Qu’ran that specifies that God has mandated men to have beards)

      I have a beard because I like having a beard, I don’t like to shave and I think it looks good on me. It has nothing to do with religion.

      • blogster

        Clearly Southtrini, you lack the basic knowldge of Islam. You qote the quran and try to interpret it yourself! wow. Have you tried going to the Tasffir of the quran to see what those Ayats of the Quran and other corresponding Ayats really mean? why dont you try Ibn Kattair Taffir of the Qur’an to get your answers! Everything you just quoted is right, but your interpretation is wrong. Actually Dawud was right in what he said!

        • southtrini1

          Kindly explain what part of my “interpretation” was wrong. Brother, instead of getting angry you should try to help others understand. However, I don’t think that I offered my own interpretation. I merely quoted the verses. I didn’t attempt to interpret anything.

    • Infidel Proud

      Don’t you have a jihad to plan or something?

    • India belongs to Indians

      We can not force our believes onto others… If someone does not want to follow Islam, its his/ her wish. The article is about benefits beard and a few people don’t want to have it, that’s ok…. But why do want to bring religion into this? Moreover if persons are non-Muslims, then how can you expect them to believe in Islamic values?
