I have not noticed white hair any younger than before. Is this a recent trend? I always thought it was due to heredity. LOL of course we do see in the movies a frightening event can turn hair white overnight..but I think that's mostly just in the movies...

There are several factors that contribute to early graying of hair. if you come a family of 'early graying of hair, 50- 60 percent , you would likely to have it too. Now early age can be relative. Twenty five years old to some is really very young but to some, its old enough. Well, whatever is that early, the type of work also can also cause the graying of hair. I for one, only start to have white hair when i reached my early forties. Comparing with my other friends, they start to have white even at the age of 21. Another factor is food. According to studies, food rich in pantothenic acid and niacin helps prevent having white hair. We get niacin from lean meats, liver, poultry, milk and leafy green vegetables in general, good nutrition. Proper nutrition helps in maintaining the bodily functions and thus preventing us from getting unusual illnesses at an early age. One is the graying of hair. Just eat a blanced diet everyday and its good for your body.

It is because now a days, there has been a great change in eating habits. Now people are not eating hygienic food. Especially, youngsters...They like fast-foods like pizza and burger... This bad eating habits leads to protein deficiency which results into health problems including graying of hair at early age... Of course, now the life has more stress. Young people have many stressors related to their studies, relationships, image,etc.
