3. Hair Loss
Hair loss is not uncommon among men. Male pattern baldness is quite common, affecting an estimated 40 percent of young and middle-aged adult men, and approximated 80 percent of all men by the time they reach the age of 80. Often, hair loss in men is genetic; however, it may not be related to your genes at all.
Rather, it could actually be a sign that your arteries are clogged. A scientific study that examined roughly 37,000 men who suffered from extensive baldness starting at the crown of the head was a strong indicator of coronary heart disease (CHD), a condition that occurs as a result of excessive plaque build up along the walls of the arteries that reduces blood flow, known as coronary artery disease. If you are experiencing significant hair loss, don’t dismiss it as a result of bad genes; see your doctor, as it could be a sign that your arteries are clogged.
