Why do people get gray hair?

Is like stress or a chemical in are hair that does it?

Report as

As we get older we learn more and more and our brains have to grow in order to contain all our new knowledge. The pressure forces the grey matter out through our pores and it discolours our hair. Just remember that when you see grey-haired people they're pretty smart.

Mind you, they're not as smart as bald people, because as the Psalmist wrote,
"The Lord one took a lot of pains
to make sure he was fair;
to some of us he gave the brains ...
you others got the hair."

But seriously? It's caused by a drop in an enzyme called catalase and the hair "bleaches itself" from the inside out. There's an article at this link http://www.webmd.com/beauty/hair-nails/20090225/why-hair-goes-gray
