A man who sits too high
According to a study report from the Medical Center, a human anatomy study of 28 patients with prostate cancer found that these patients sat higher in chairs than healthy individuals of the same height. Further research has shown that people with high concentrations of the sex hormone testosterone increase their "sitting height" faster during development than people with normal testosterone concentrations. High concentrations of testosterone can induce subtle changes in prostate cells, stimulate the growth of carcinogenic cells, and lead to the occurrence of prostate cancer in adulthood.
A bald man
Balding men are twice as likely to develop prostate cancer as non balding men. Research has found that hair loss may be caused by testosterone levels during puberty, and the risk of prostate cancer in men may be related to testosterone levels in the body, a risk that has emerged as early as adolescence. In addition, hormones are also associated with baldness, which may explain the relationship between baldness and prostate cancer.
An important study from Harvard University shows that for balding men, in addition to having a higher risk of prostate cancer than the general population, they are also unfortunately at a high risk of heart disease. Regarding the relationship between hair loss and those who have developed heart problems (including non fatal heart attacks, angina pectoris, or chest pain), researchers have analyzed and found that compared to men who have not developed hair loss, men who have begun to develop anterior baldness have a 9% higher probability of developing these heart diseases, and this probability has increased to 23% among balding men; If all the hair on the top falls out, the probability will increase to 36%. In this process, hormones once again become one of the culprits. According to scientists' speculation, the emergence of atherosclerosis and the formation of thrombosis are related to hormones.
