Sometimes the hair on our head gives clues to other health issues. New research from the University of Bonn linked hair loss to other factors. The researchers looked at 20,000 men’s genetic code and found 63 alterations that were also linked to hair loss. For example, short men are more likely to go bald. Bald men are more likely to have prostate cancer. Men that went through puberty early are more likely to go bald. These are just a few of the findings, but interesting nonetheless. This research just emphasizes that what you see on the outside is often a reflection of what’s going on inside of the body. Remember that hair loss in both men and women is often associated with a change in hormone levels, so be sure to see your doctor if you start seeing more hair in your brush or on your pillow.
