‘Crown’ baldness associated with higher risk of heart disease, analysis finds
~ Susan Perry … 04/04/13 … ‘Crown’ baldness associated with higher risk of heart disease, analysis finds… Male pattern baldness is associated with an increased risk of heart disease, but only if the baldness is on the crown of the head, a new meta-analysis of previous studies reports. Among men with receding hairlines, no significant increase in risk was found.
~ A possible marker… The reasons for the association between baldness and heart disease are unclear, the meta-analysis authors point out. It may be, however, that top-of-the-head baldness is a marker for insulin resistance or chronic inflammation or some other factor that promotes heart disease.
