February 29, 2008, Newsletter Issue #127: Hair Loss: Real Causes

Tip of the Week

If your body's starving your hair is NOT the first to go. The human body must be seriously devoid of vitamins before it turns to hair for nutrients. Sailors with scurvy lost their hair because they lacked the necessary vitamins found in citrus fruits, but that's rarely a problem today.

Balding men who swallow zinc pills as a hair loss treatment are wasting their time. Doctors say there's no proof zinc prevents hair loss or slows pattern baldness. Besides genetics, hair loss can be caused by thyroid disorders, iron deficiency, rheumatoid problems (such as lupus), chemical exposure to the scalp, and fungal infections.
