Baldness is a normal and recognized process, and there is no magic medicine to “cure” hair loss, but there are definitely ways to avoid and delay hair loss. A new study has found that men who consume large amounts of energy drinks, soft drinks and even sugary tea and coffee are more likely to go bald. The study, conducted by experts from Tsinghua University in Beijing, looked at 1,000 men who were observed drinking between one and three liters of sugary drinks every week.
According to the results, those who consumed more than one sugary drink a day had a 42% higher risk of experiencing hair loss, compared to those who did not. In addition, “Complex” magazine revealed that those who ate fast food and less vegetables were also at a higher risk of hair loss.
The men in the study who experienced hair loss said they drank an average of 12 sugary drinks a week. The dermatologist, Dr. Sharon Wong, told the British “Sun”: “The hair follicle cells are cells that break down quickly in the body and require all the nutrients of a healthy balanced diet. It includes lean proteins, good carbohydrates and fats, vitamins and minerals, but no hair superfoods.”
In addition, she announced that “nutritional deficiencies and fad diets are a common cause of hair thinning and hair loss.”
