Reasons Why Male Baldness Is Getting Worse

Male baldness and thinning hair cause distress too many men and will affect the vast majority at some point in their lives. But there are three reasons why this already-massive number is set to rise even more!

For approximately 20 percent of men, male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia) will start as early as puberty. For these men, hair loss will be extremely rapid and severe. For 60 percent of men, this process is more gradual or might start later on in life. Nevertheless, they too can eventually suffer extensive hair loss. This leaves just 20 percent of men who might never experience male baldness. But even for them, a future full of scalp hair is now far from certain. These are the reasons why:

     Poor nutrition

     Stress

     An aging population

POOR NUTRITION

Nearly everyone loves junk food. It tastes great, doesn't it? But would it taste as great if you were told that it's making your hair loss worse? It's well-known that the typical junk food diet enjoyed by Western societies is causing a serious obesity problem, and that degenerative disorders like heart disease, hypertension and diabetes also have a big connection with this type of diet.

However, the excessive consumption of beer, burgers, sugary drinks, red meat, etc., can also contribute to male baldness: if your normal day-to-day diet contains too much sugar and fat, your rate of hair loss can increase. That's because these types of food can affect your hormone production and balance. And hormones have, undeniably, been linked to male baldness.

The hormone mostly responsible for male baldness is a derivative of testosterone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). And given that testosterone is derived from fat, it's very easy to see how DHT levels can become excessive if you eat too much junk food.

Your body also uses fat to produce sebum (an oily substance secreted from hair follicles). In excess, sebum may also hinder hair growth by clogging up the follicles as hair tries to grow along them.

Your body can convert any excess of food you eat into fat. And this is especially true of sugar. Male baldness has been associated with high insulin levels, and insulin production usually increases when you consume more sugar. This, by the way, includes alcohol-sugar forms a significant part of many alcoholic drinks. And simply taking vitamins for thinning hair and hair loss won't help nearl
