Jakarta- Baldness is one of the most common problems in older men.Talent to experience it, can now be estimated from approximately 200 genetic markers were recently discovered.
During this time, scientists only know there are eight genetic markers associated baldness.A group of scientists from the UK complete with more than 200 genetic markers found in a recent study.
“Still a long way to make an accurate prediction for individually patterned baldness. However, these results bring us one step closer,” said one of the scientists researching, Riccardo Marioni from the University of Edinburgh, quoted by LiveScience.
In that study, Marioni and his colleagues analyzed information from 52,000 men aged 40-69 years in England.Another 32 percent did not experience hair loss, 23 percent fell slightly, and 18 percent experienced severe loss.

The scientists then analyzed the genomes of the participants, to look for genetic variations called single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs).The results, found 287 genetic variations in 100 genes associated with severe hair loss.
