Masturbation addict, have stunted growth, hair lose. Related?

Hi, I am 29 years Male, 5.3 feet and 65 Kgs Height. My average Masturbation rate is 10 times per week. Not sure this rate is normal. I have been Masturbating with this rate by the age of 18, so thats make 11 years until know. I believe that it would had have certain effects on my body. I ascribe STUNTED GROWTH to masturbation (No one is shorter in my family, all members have almost or above average height ). I started loosing hairs when I was 21 and at present I have dense hairs, I believe it is because of masturbation as it started at the same time as masturbation. (Again, No one in my family is Bald !! ) Please share your views on my case.

Hello dear..
First of all remove all myths & misconceptions from your mind about masturbation.
In fact, Masturbation is completely normal & doesn't have any bad effect to the body and mind
All those concepts that masturbation leads to stunted growth and hair loss is baseless.

Height of an individual is determined by Genetics, Environmental & Nutritional factors and Hormonal factors (most important the Growth Hormone secreted by pituitary gland in brain)
Similarly...there are a number of reasons for hair loss.
So..please leave all these's better to meet a Dermatologist and get a solution.
There are so many new therapies for management of hair loss.

Also...make sure that you are taking a healthy & balanced diet, exercise regularly & avoid stress.
One more thing...avoid consuming any over the counter medication which claim to increase may be harmful.

Wishing you Good Health.
Thanks and take care.
