Bald men and heart attacks
Bald men and heart attacks

Looks like bald men have more to worry about than just their “looks.”

A new Japanes study finds that balding men are at higher risks for heart attacks.

Men who suffer from hair loss from both the front and the crowns of their heads had a 69% higher risk of a non-fatal heart attack compared to those with a fuller head of hair.

Men who had just crown-top hair loss were 52% more likely to have a heart attack and for those with receeding hairlines the risk was 22% higher.

They’ve yet to determine why…but they recommend that balding men should have their cardiovascular risk factors reviewed carefully, especially younger men.

As always…check with your doctor!
