CAPTION PHOTO OF THE DAY! Give me your best caption for this photo below in the comment section, or on the Charlie FM Facebook page. This is an actual still shot from a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon...so try to keep it PG13!!!
You can't be a sister, daughter, wife or lover without the topic of baldness coming up in your life eventually. Fact...we all have about 100,000 hairs residing on the scalp and normal people lose
anywhere from 50 to 100 hairs a day. Males have a 60% chance of losing their hair, and it can start as young as the teenage years and nearly two out of every three men will begin balding by the time they're 60. Most don't part with their part willingly—American males collectively spend $1 billion a year trying to hang onto those locks. Some myths about baldness debunked: Myth: Hair loss is passed down from your mother's side.
Not entirely true. While the primary baldness gene is on the X chromosome, which men get only from their mothers, other factors are also in play, like illness, age, genetics from both parents, and even primping habits like guys who tease their hair and use curling irons, which could speed up the process. Myth: Exposure to the sun encourages balding.
Not true. FALSE. Myth: Loading up on carbohydrates can lead to hair loss.
Carbohydrates and red meat actually provide nutrients that are helpful for maintaining a full head of hair, so eat cards and red meat because an iron deficiency has been linked to hair loss and taking iron supplements—could restore growth. Myth: The most sexually active men are the first to go bald.
This is one of the most popular myths doctors hear from patients. Relax,there's no truth to it. Baldies have the same amount of testosterone than their hairy friends.
And in case you wondered, the three jobs with the most bald males are software engineers, web developers, and Salesmen.
