    eating habits

    1 When discovering the first gray hair in his beard at (a) relatively young age, he's wondering if he has wrong eating habits or drinks too much now. More likely, it's caused by too much stress, though.

    2 After discovering the first gray hair in his beard too early in life, he's wondering now if he has wrong eating habits or drinks too much, though it's probably caused by too much stress.

    Please check if they're both correct. I'd tend to use #2 but I'm not quite sure.

    Re: eating habits

    After discovering his first grey beard hair at only [age], he wondered if his poor eating habits or excessive alcohol consumption were to blame. However, he decided it was more likely that stress was the cause.

    Then he studied the phenomenon and learned that only genetics had anything to do with it.

    I certainly didn't blame alcohol for grey hairs appearing in my beard.
