Attn: Men

"Men living in polluted areas are more likely to go bald than those breathing cleaner air, a new study suggests.

The ground breaking research, by academics at the University of London, has linked the onset of male pattern baldness, to environmental factors, such as air pollution and smoking.

The scientists believe toxins and carcinogens found in polluted air can stop hair growing by blocking mechanisms that produce the protein from which hair is made. Baldness is known to be hereditary, but the new research suggests that environmental factors could exacerbate hair loss."

Rest here.

Every man out there should be worried about pollution now. Especially since I'm not really into balding men.

  1. Hmmm. Why did the study not highlight women, I wonder. Womens hair is indenticle to mens. I would suppose that women would be subject to similar balding triggers. IDK (Maybe I'll read the rest when I have some more time.)

    Bob, balding since 18.
    Rogaine? Nah, 50/50 it works.
    Hair plugs? I don't want to look like a doll.
    Comb-over? LOL
    It's all false advertising (just like push-up bras.)

  2. Did you ever see baldness in a five year old girl? It's called Alopecia Ariata, and no one knows anything about it. It's listed as an Auto-immune disorder. My little bald headed grandaughter has lived with it for two years. Running toward the playground at high speed, two boys stopped dead, looked at her coming toward them and asked,"Is that a boy or a girl?" She never broke stride and yelled back, "I'm a girl" and crossed the monkey bars faster than they could close their mouths.
    Baldness might be a real blessing!
