Your Health: 4-4-13 Heart disease and baldness

Posted: Updated:

Men who are bald may have more to worry about than their appearance.

A new study says men who go bald on the crown of the head have an increase  risk of heart disease.

 The study conducted by some Japanese researchers found those with a classic bald spot were 52% more likely to have coronary artery disease.

It also revealed the more hair a man has lost, the greater the risk to his heart.

The study's lead author says men who are losing their hair should adapt a heart-healthy lifestyle.
