Overworking Will Make You Bald
A new study out of South Korea shows that working too much can actually cause hair loss in men, and no, it's not because the dumbass three cubicles over that never makes a deadline makes you want to pull your hair out.
The study shows that men who work over 52 hours lose their hair twice as fast as those who work 40 hours or less. The scientists say it's because of too much stress, and not enough time off to offset the stress.
Stress and anxiety can cause rogue hormones that trigger the end of an active hair growth cycle long before it's time. The study included 13,000 men between the ages of 20-59, split into the categories of those who work less than 40 hours, 40-52 hours, and 52 or more hours.
They found that those who worked the longer hours are much more likely to suffer from premature balding, and that those who worked less were less likely. They admitted there was a difficulty in studying because many of the men surveyed would begin to lose hair at the age of 30 years old as it was.
