Male pattern hair loss is the most common form of hair loss in men, sometimes occurring as early as the late teens or early adulthood. By age 35, nearly two-thirds of men will have some form of hair loss. In a new study published in the journal Nutrients, Chinese researchers determined that participants with male pattern hair loss consumed significantly higher amounts of sugar-sweetened beverages compared to normal participants. Male pattern hair loss individuals consumed over 4200 milliliters of sugar-sweetened beverages, compared to about 2500 among normal participants. Sugar-sweetened beverages include soft drinks, fruit-flavored drinks, energy drinks, sweetened waters, and coffee or tea with added sugars. The CDC estimates that 63 percent of young Americans and 49 percent of adults drink sugar-sweetened beverages daily.
