Alopecia, or more commonly known as hair loss, affects 35 million men and 21 million women in the United States alone. Approximately 40 percent of men begin to have noticeable hair loss by the age of 35. Reasons for hair loss is attributed to such myths as wearing hats or certain shampoos, but the real cause in men may be due to excess male hormone androgen. Dr. Vera H. Price states that alopecia areata is an immune disease that also affects hair growth in women. Her report can be found in the New England Journal of Medicine Sept. 1999 issue.
