You won't live much more.

Is this

Radiation?

I make your hair fall

Hair falling out, as in from radiation/chemotherapy

Your heart begins to fall, too

Radiation can cause heart failure

But I don't cut them.

Radiation doesn’t cut either hair or heart

I can be a rock

Radioactive rocks exist, since they are just rocks containing radium

In some places, I'm some dust

Radioactive dust is otherwise known as nuclear fallout

You won't live much more.

This tends to kill people reasonably quickly

Uranium Mines

Uranium is radioactive

An underground toxic find

Which can be toxic and found underground

I destroy your brain.

Radiation in high doses can destroy the brain

The hint in the title

Is related to the link in the original answer, noting that the lack of magnetosphere on Mars makes radiation exposure much, much worse there than on Earth.

    $\begingroup$ Yes, the title was supposed to help in this, but also throw people off. Most people don't know that Mars' surface is radioactive. Sorry, Elon, your trip to Mars has been canceled. $\endgroup$ – CStafford-14 Apr 18 at 20:24
