Baldness Solution Potentially Found In McDonald’s French Fries

Scientists in Japan claim the solution to hair loss may be lying in the chemicals used to cook McDonald’s french fries.

Researchers at Yokohama National University used dimethylpolysiloxane, a chemical used in the silicone added McDonald’s deep frying oil, to mass produce hair follicles.

According to the study published in the journal Biomaterials, the experiment was a success when the follicles were transplanted onto mice, and is expected to eventually work on humans.

The research team said they experienced a breakthrough when they were able to simultaneously generate up to 5,000 hair follicle germs (HFG) on each rodent.
