Shit! I've still got my hair. Too bad "turning gray" doesn't count for anything.

Baldness linked to wealth

September 9, 2004

BALD men who lament their hair loss can take comfort in a study showing they will earn more money than the hirsute.

The survey found that the more money a man earns, the more likely he is to be losing his hair.

Ninety-five per cent of those earning more than $8000 a month complained that they were losing their hair, compared with 35 per cent of those earning less than $1000 a month. Researchers also found that men working in the legal and accounting professions were most likely to suffer from hair loss, with one in five saying they were going bald.

Civil servants are the second highest sufferers of hair loss, with 15 per cent saying they are shedding hair, followed by medical workers with a rate of 11 per cent. More than 2200 people were interviewed.

A hair loss specialist said people in high-paid jobs tended to be under more pressure and at higher risk of going bald.

More than 40 per cent who lost the most hair slept for less than four hours a night, compared with only 4 per cent of those with the lowest rate of hair loss.

I think this guy skewed the results. He's probably worth more than all the bald men in America combined.

Some of the richest people on this planet have a full head.
AlsoI am sure most wealthy people who have worked for a living are rather old. Kind of goes with the aging.
