A shocking study by the University of Tokyo was published recently about balding men. I am sure there is no truth in it. I would not be surprised if the research was commissioned by the Japanese Association of Hairdressers out of sheer spite.
According to this dubious research, men who go bald on the crown of their head, have a 50% increased risk of heart disease. Those with receding hairlines only had a 22% increased risk. Alarmingly, those with receding hairlines and a bald crown top were 69% more at risk. It is all to do with testosterone.
No wonder Wayne Rooney, Shane Warne and Graham Gooch spent all that money on hair transplants.
I prefer the research that says men with high levels of testosterone are great sportsmen and great lovers.
But I might buy a wig tomorrow just in case there is any truth in the research :-).
