Baldness And Hair Loss - Is It Hereditary?
by Michael J Mckay
the white ethnic group.  It has been a longstanding misconception that the white
community is just about the only ethnic group that is affected by the loss of hair in
any form. This couldn't be farther from the truth.

Hereditary hair loss actually affects most ethnic groups, including Asian, Latino and
the African American ethnic groups. The proven, common link to hereditary baldness
seems to stem from the fact that in all ethnic groups, this condition can be innate
from both the mother's or father's side of the family.

Another common misconception regarding hereditary baldness is that it stems from
the mother's side of the family. This tale has been told throughout generations. It
goes along the lines that if the mother's father is bald, then if she gives birth to a son,
he will eventually be bald as well. This statement could not be further from the truth.
The fact is that hereditary baldness is caused by certain inherent issues. Furthermore,
it may, or may not, skip over one generation.

In addition to hereditary baldness, there are many other reasons for people losing
their hair. If your condition seems to be odd, such as your hair falling out in odd
patterns or clumps, or if there is no known medical history of baldness in your family,
your symptoms might have been caused by:

- Illness;

- Stress;

- Wearing tight hairstyles (tight pony tails);

- Hair pulling;

- Ringworm;

- Hormonal imbalances.

To conclude this article, yes, in many cases baldness is due to certain, predisposed
hereditary factors. If, however you are showing symptoms of hair-loss and are
unaware of any family history for this condition, you should consult your physician.
Medical tests should be able to pinpoint the cause of your baldness, and hopefully
lead to either a cure or cessation of the advancement of the condition.
