It is only a meta-analysis, but still...

"Vertex baldness, but not frontal baldness, is associated with an increased risk of CHD. The association with CHD depends on the severity of vertex baldness and also exists among younger men"

At least in mice, the link between VDR and Alopecia is well understood... It is good to see the links being explored in Homo sapiens as well.

ps: This what progress in Medicine is fighting against: "The British Heart Foundation said men should focus on their waistline, not their hairline." They are incorrect, of course. This is a pattern of symptoms, not a causal relationship. Both with Balding and Obesity..
