Having Gray Hair Connected to the Higher Risk of Heart Disease
A small observational study by a team of Egyptian researchers linked gray hair to atherosclerosis, a heart disease in which plaque accumulates in the arteries.
For the research, the scientists analyzed the prevalence of coronary artery disease in 545 men and divided them into subgroups according to the presence of disease and the amount of gray or white hair.
Having analyzed the given data, the researchers found that a man’s hair whitening score, age, and dyslipidemia and hypertension (heart disease risk factors) were independent predictors of atherosclerosis.
Dr. Irini Samuel, a cardiologist at Cairo University in Egypt, says: “If our findings are confirmed, standardization of the scoring system for evaluation of hair graying could be used as a predictor for coronary artery disease.”
