BOSTON — There may be a link between sugary drinks and hair loss in men. 
Researchers surveyed nearly 2,000 young men in China and found that high sugar-sweetened beverage consumption was associated with a higher risk of male pattern baldness.  
Scientists recommend young people reduce their intake of sugary drinks to minimize negative health outcomes, including in this case, hair loss.
