Jewish people are more susceptible to baldness than other races because of their longer civilized existence, according to Paul A. Thomas, scalp expert.

“The Jews lived in highly developed culture while their northern brothers were barbarians some 3,000 years ago,” Thomas said.

“Scandinavians and Teutonic people are the least susceptible to baldness.”
