Baldness = Heart disease?  On the news this morning I heard about a new study regarding baldness and heart disease.   I was fascinated!  I found the study at http://news.harvard.edu/gazette/2000/01.27/bald.html  The type of baldness, whether it’s crown baldness or a receding hair line shows the difference in the correlation of heart disease and baldness.  Crown baldness with either high blood pressure or high cholesterol triples ones risk of heart disease, virus those without any baldness and high cholesterol and high blood pressure.

This paragraph stood out for me as I work with many women with polycystic ovary syndrome.

” Alternatively, the link could be inherited. Recent findings, the study report points out, suggest similarities between male pattern baldness and polycystic ovary syndrome, a condition in some women that is likely to increase the risk of hardening of arteries, of high levels of blood fats, and of low levels of good cholesterol. Brothers of such women have an increased likelihood of male pattern baldness.

If you are prone to this, take action NOW!  Learn how to eat and have a healthier lifestyle to avoid heart disease.  Visit www.ChefGloriaB.com for help before disease strikes.
