Male baldness 'indicates heart risk'

Men who are bald have a much higher chance of developing coronary heart disease, according to researchers in Japan.

Their study of nearly 37,000 people, published in the online journal BMJ Open, said balding men were 32% more likely to have coronary heart disease.

However, the researchers said the risks were less than for smoking or obesity.
