New Delhi :  

Did you know that short men who are balding earlier are at a higher risk of facing Cancer and much another health issue. According to a new study, it has been found that males of short height are at increased risk of losing their hair prematurely, in addition to a number of many other health issues.

The study shows that short men with premature hair loss tend to suffer from heart diseases and prostate cancer.This report was confirmed in a new genetic data showing that there are further connections to other characteristics and illnesses.

The genetic findings in the report also confirm about the link between hair loss and a risk of prostate cancer. Heart disease linked to this is even more complicated.Genes that reduce the risk were found along with genes that increase the risk."We have also found links to light skin colour and increased bone density," said Prof. Markus Nothen.

"These could indicate that men with hair loss are better able to use sunlight to synthesize vitamin D. They could also explain why white men, in particular, lose their hair prematurely," Nothen explained.
