Study shows people who work long hours are likely to get bald

A recent four-year study shows those who work more > 52 hours/week are likely to go bald. This study was conducted at the Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine, South Korea and was based on 13,000 men between the ages of 20 and 59. The authors said, “When you get stressed, the hormonal change can inhibit the growth of hair follicles on the scalp,”. This study has prompted the South Korean government to encourage employers to cut employees work hours.
