Rogaine: vanity or medicine?
Posted in the Christian Forum

In the 1980s when wealthy Americans were opting for cosmetic surgery, critics began to wonder if the temptations of fame and fortune were creating unnatural desires for body transformation.
While it is true that exercise also achieves body transformation, we may need to be wary of extrapolating such behaviors to more dangerous ones such as illegal performance-enhancing steroid use.
Rogaine is a chemical treatment designed to reverse hair loss in balding people. While the drug is scientifically approved and legally sold, people wonder if it is a necessary treatment or another "society vanity exercise."
When humans peer into outer space and wonder if outer galaxies and star systems such as Vega hold intelligent life, perhaps they are practicing a form of intellectual vanity, since after all, there is plenty of majestic and wondrous life (i.e., flowers, bees, zebras, goldfish, monkeys, humans, etc.) right here on Earth.
Do vanity-themed Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Pretty Woman" (1990) and "Celebrity" (1998) suggest that humanity is practically interested in prudent self-evaluation?
Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?
