    Bald men at greater heart disease risk. Men with a bald pate are at significantly greater risk of heart disease than their less follicly challenged peers, according to a new study which found that the problem is greater the younger hair loss begins. [​IMG]


    Men with severe male-pattern baldness are a third more likely to develop coronary artery disease than those who retain a full head of hair, Japanese researchers found. [​IMG]

    But this only applied to men whose hair loss occurred on top of the head [​IMG], while those with a receding hairline around their temples were at no greater risk.

    Men who lost their hair earlier in life were at especially high risk, and the likelihood of developing heart disease was greater in those with more extensive hair loss.




    The research, published in the British Medical Journal, was an analysis of six previous studies involving a total of 37,000 men.
    Three papers found on average that those who lost most of their hair were 32 per cent more likely to develop heart disease, rising to 44 per cent in those who became bald before the age of 60.
    But the other three studies, which compared the health of bald and balding men against those with a full head of hair, found that men with hair loss were 70 per cent more likely to have heart disease, increasing to 84 per cent in younger age groups.
    Considering all the evidence, researchers found that extensive baldness on the crown increased the risk by 48 per cent, moderate baldness by 36 per cent and mild baldness by 18 per cent.
    The researchers said their results showed that men with a balding crown should “probably be encouraged to improve their cardiovascular risk profile"[​IMG], especially if their baldness developed early.

    I don;t know how true it is. As far as I have seen, My father who had all the hair intact and natural jet black suffered from heart disease and passed away. Whereas I have seen many baldmen who lived above 90 and those living still healthily even after 80.

    There are celebrities and famous people in the world who are living healthily.

    how about those who undergo hair weaving or hair transplant?!!! ;-)
