Your Job Might be Making You Go Bald
I always thought that baldness was more about genetics than anything else. Whether there’s a scientific connection or not, a new survey compared jobs with baldness and found the jobs with the most bald males.
- Sales. 60% of the men surveyed in sales are bald or have lost a significant amount of hair since they started working. (Makes sense to me. Sales people don’t make a regular paycheck. How do plan a budget when you don’t know what you’re going to make next month?)
- Web developers. (Maybe it’s because they spend so much time running their fingers through their hair searching for garbage code?)
- Software engineers. (see #2.)
25% of the men surveyed with thinning hair blamed the stress from their job. The average man said he was working at a stressful job for four-and-a-half years before he started losing hair . . . but once it started going, it went quickly.
