Losing your hair sucks, but it’s a common ailment that affects an increasing percentage of adults. While hair loss is commonly associated with old age, it affects a significant number of younger adults as well. An estimated forty percent of men will experience hair loss by the time they reach their mid-thirties. While much more common in men, hair loss also affects women. Permanent or temporary hair loss is especially prevalent in women over the age of forty and women who have recently given birth. Regardless of age or gender, however, hair loss is often a cause for concern in anyone affected by it. Thankfully, modern medicine provides numerous options for those looking to restore their full head of hair, from topical medications to laser therapy to hair transplant surgery.

Economics can be, admittedly, a pretty boring subject to casually read up on. Not everyone is a fan of how the US economy—or any economy for that matter—works.
