The Baldness Myth
By NewBeauty Staff |
Prevailing wisdom used to be that baldness is inherited from one's maternal grandfather. However, medical experts now agree that the tendency towards baldness can be influenced by both sides of the family. Since baldness is a pretty common problem, it's hard to find families with members that aren't bald-and it's hard to trace the source. It all comes down to the luck of the genetic draw, and you can no longer simply blame your mom's dad for your hair loss.
