It's genetics, plain n simple.

I say again, it doesn't have anything to do with diet. I am about as healthy as a human can be and drink/eat healthy, always have been, and I'm losing my hair in the traditional MPB pattern. Genetics.

^^^I think that is the misconception "that men are balding faster today" since shaving has become
mainstream.

The original question has been asked over the Internet for years, probably because the observation is true. I think earlier balding is due mostly to medication, anabolic steroids, untreated/undertreated diabetes, and poor diets.

Whats the difference between my father and I? I eat and drink very healthy for the most part. He didn't.
You only have 50% of your father's genes though. Whatever gene, or genes, are involved in balding you may have inherited from your mother. Diet may play a factor, but if so I'd imagine it's still multifactorial with genes playing at least some role as well.

Baldness goes waaaaay back.

Snake oil cures for baldness were as popular 100 years ago as those snake oil cures for weight loss are today.

Those snake oil salesmen who traveled from town to town peddling their " magic elixir " for baldness were the Dr Oz's of today on TV promoting fat loss pills.

Thanks for the ridicule (and enjoy going bald?). Everything I said is based in fact. I did not say the main issue is genetic, which of course it is, but the question is about "balding faster." Genes haven't changed to make men bald faster. The only serious objection should be about whether men are balding faster. Some experts seem to believe it.

I'm 29, I have *some* residing but its my own fault. I've done alot of stupid things with my hair. Then again, my two younger cousins on my moms side (grandfather was bald) are bald. They started to go bald at about 24. They are also fat as all hell so they are got bad genes. In fact, I just got a haircut today and the hairdresser commented on how thick my hair is. Its amazing being amazing.
