    You really don't need a lot of information, to go is simple it's the same goal since the beginning of time why why people do we make it harder to understand, their condition to follow the rules of that country break them down build them up and eventually let them go and they will never ever forget what can happen to them is to follow the dictatorship what they say to do how to do it and why to do it it is simple they keep their hand on control,

    The best solution is to wear your own hair. If you don't have any hair take measures to grow your own healthy hair from your own head. You can start that any day you want to.

    I know that medical conditions like cancer which requires treatments that cause hair loss for women who had healthy hair can be devastating! My beloved sister died from cancer. She told me when her hair started to fall out as she combed or even touched it was a frightening reality! She was a beautiful woman with beautiful natural hair. She purchased wigs, but eventually stopped wearing them. I have a beautiful picture of her with no hair. I love this picture because it shows her courage and strength!

    Human trafficking makes more money than the sale of drugs or guns combined by far. Sad but true. Unlike guns or drugs, a person can be sold over and over and over, all while retaining ownership of said person.

    Practically 90% of what we buy whether it clothes, hair products or electronics are made from China in sweatshops. This isn't anything new. The usa government allow the products to be imported here. The USA government is getting taxes off these goods and now they are crying foul. The booming business in the USA is free labor from prisoners. Same thing China does. USA benefited from 400 years of free slave labor.

    What's the difference from there industrial parks and the United States prisons it's free slave labor hypocritical reporting CNN
