    Post History of baldness on either side of family increases risk of balding

    DEAR MAYO CLINIC: Is it true that you inherit genes for baldness from your mother's side of the family? Is there anything that can be done to prevent or slow hair loss?

    Yea.. Genetics. Get what you're dealt. Consider in 10 years or so we'll be able to alter DNA structures and genetic traits prior to child birth. Interesting.

    EDIT: Implication: baldness will in time be prevented; prior to actual birth of child. Rather than cured.

    Yeah you're right-could be worse I guess, although to me losing my thick luscious locks of old is so depressing. I remember my old barber saying "man you ain't never going bald" ten years ago, hmm lying bastard.

    Ay, ****. Not his fault though, you might've had a nice mane at the time!

    Were you happy, then?
