Not sure on this one,DNA testing for baldness imo is not accurate as there are too many variables.

Interesting though that they say 40% are women who experience hairloss,this again is up in the air as i reckon by hairloss they are counting people who`s hair thins out a little but not to the extent for them to be overly concerned and see it as a problem.

Not familiar with it but certainly it does look like most things can be spotted via genes.

Even so, women who has bald genes, also has hormones that makes them grow more hair than men. Men inherited that DNA and goes bald. Such a shame.

The gene thing for me makes no sense because I know of at leat 2 people, who had this test (Positive),but have not lost any hair, to date. Trying to find a scientific explanation for hair loss is like finding a needle in a haystack. The process is so random sometimes its impossible to pin down a single cause and apply it to anyone.
