Sure you do, and it's not improving! It has even prompted one Cleveland fan to secure a parade permit to celebrate "the perfect season" on Jan. 6, 2018, if the team finishes up 0-16.

Doctors recently found an association between those two conditions and heart disease. They studied 790 men younger than 40 who had coronary artery disease and a control group of 270 healthy men. The young men with CAD had a higher prevalence of male-pattern baldness (49 percent vs 27 percent) and premature graying (50 percent vs 30 percent) than their healthy counterparts.

So heads-up: If you're 40 or younger and turning gray and or losing your hair, consider amping up your heart-protection routines.

Then you'll have a winning record, season after season. * * * Mehmet Oz, M.D. is host of "The Dr. Oz Show," and Mike Roizen, M.D. is Chief Wellness Officer and Chair of Wellness Institute at Cleveland Clinic.
