Male baldness: If this is indeed the familiar male pattern baldness, it's your genetics. Hairy-chested men tend to lose their scalp hair earlier. Your phsyician can discuss surgical and prescription options. There's no magic diet. Or you can embrace your masculinity and genetics, get really physically fit, and look as good as photo guy -- now who's complaining?
