Solving problems often requires a multi-dimensional approach which considers all possible factors that may be causing the problem.
Why Do So Many Men Lose Their Hair?
If researchers were to investigate baldness in middle-aged men, they may notice that many bald men also have what is called a ‘beer’ belly (a large stomach). This could lead researchers to mistakenly conclude that a large stomach is the cause of the baldness. This mistake can be avoided if researchers recognize that there are usually a number of factors that cause problems such as male baldness. In order to solve these problems, we need to adopt a multi-dimensional approach that tries to address all the factors that contribute to the problem.
