Why do some young men go bald at an early age?

Is it due to stress, male hormone or something else?
For instance, Prince William has lost a lot of his hair but his brother still has a full head of hair.

Inherited genes.

Scientists now believe that is the ONLY explanation for "male pattern baldness."

But how do you explain the fact that men are going bald earlier? If it was just inherited genes, then why did men lose their hair later, years ago? I have noticed many young men losing their hair in recent years.

Genetic patterns that didn't "exist" years ago, now do, because of marriages (and breeding combinations) that didn't occur, until recently.

male pattern baldness is the main reason.

An interesting question, men seem to be going bald earlier than they used to. It happens to men when they're in their 20's now , it never used to be like that and it is happening to quite a few these days.

I really can't see an explanation for why it is happening earlier now-- even though its genetic, it doesn't explain the early onset of baldness.

I'm guessing that it could be due to a change in the atmosphere, but that would only be a guess!

I have read that its a zinc deficiency. So, if there is a history of baldness in the family, young men should get themselves down to a good health shop, PDQ!

It begs the question of why young men have a deficiency now, when their fathers didn't at their age?

All I can think of, is a change in diet.. or/and a more stressful lifestyle; if you're going to lose your hair anyway, maybe stress affects the way we hold vitamins, such as zinc, in the body?
