Why do American Indian & Asian men lack facial & body hair,when compared to Europeans?

Please don't say anything about climate since the climate of the Western Hemisphere & Asia is very diverse yet all American Indians & Asians lack the facial & body hair.

Update:

White European men tend to possess much more facial & body hair than all other races(Blacks,Asians,American Indians,etc.).

    A great deal has to do with genetics, hormones and yes what part of the world you live in. The melanin in your body may also play an important role.

    Yes this is true many white Europeans are just plain hairy!

    best of luck.

    look at Justin Bieber, that guy will never have a single hair on his body. Most other guys have to shave by the time they are 17-18 years old.

    It's because of genetics.

    We have a medium amount of body hair, we're not hairy apes.

    East Asians tend to have little body hair.

    South Asians tend to be super hairy.

    Black people have a lot of hair too

    They don't entirely lack facial and body hair, but on many of them it is very sparse and very fine - like the fuzz on a peach. It's simply a racial characteristic, like dark skin on many folks of African descent.

    if native americans migrated through the land bridge from eastern siberia then they spent a lot of time on a big piece of ice. they look closer to inuits too. the body hair thing doesnt mean they were in the same climate, same thing as other races having bigger eyes than asians doesnt mean they all evolved in the same climate

    I read that east Asians had to have come from the land we now call China. If you look at a map, it's surrounded by mountains. Hair traps moisture next to the body. At higher elevations, it gets colder. Moisture and cold lead to hypothermia. Selectively, people who had less hair did better and probably survived while the hairy ones died off or couldn't reach the higher elevations. But there are different reasons for not having body hair. That's one explanation for just east Asians.

    Having good genetics. No female wants to lay on a man with a hairy chest. And don't forget back hair, that's just nasty.

    LOL, Indians have a lot of hair. Asian men have smoother skin because they're more evolved and they're not cavemen.

    There's no rhyme or reason to it.

    People from India tend to be really hairy, even the women. People from Asia tend to have very little body hair. Europeans have a normal amount

    White people are of European descent. Europeans tend to have peach/beige or olive (for Southern Meditteranenas) skin, more angular features (medium to high cheekbones, squared or tapered jaws, platinum blonde to soft black hair, grey to brown eyes), straighter noses, usually medium height to tall, thinner lips: http://www.flickr.com/photos/churchillfalls/640916...

    East Asians (Korean, Chinese, Japanese) - especialy the northern ones have square or tapered jaws, light skin. But their eyes are more slanted and they only have soft black and dark brown hair and brown eyes: http://www.flickr.com/photos/promethusbound/545740...

    South Asians (Indians, Sri Lankans, Bangladeshis, etc) have light caramel to jet black skin, more round features (round jaws, low cheekbones, rounder cheeks, etc), noses tend to be more curved, more body fat, darker features (jet black hair, black eyes) and eyes to be bigger and rounder like Black people. Southern South Asians look a lot like Black people. Here are some "Northern" South Asians: http://www.google.ca/imgres?q=abhishek+bachchan&um...
