French Fry Additive May Be Key to Reversing Baldness

French Fry Additive May Be Key to Reversing Baldness, Mouse Study Shows

An ingredient used in cooking McDonald's french fries helped laboratory mice grow new hair follicles. Researchers hope this discovery may help one day reverse baldness in people.

Hair regenerative medicine is a new way to combat baldness, however, it can be the preparation of hair follicle germs on a large scale can be difficult.

The study, published in Biomaterials, was able to prepare up to 5,000 hair follicle germs simultaneously. After transplantation, the method created new hair growth in laboratory mice.

According to the research, conducted at Yokohoma National University in Japan, the dimethylpolysiloxane was key to generating new hair and hair follicle cells in mice.

Dimethylpolysiloxane is used in very small doses to prevent foaming of the oil when frying Chicken McNuggets, fish, and french fries, according to the McDonald's website.

Before you treat yourself to some french fries though, take note: the additive was injected into the laboratory mice. It still probably isn't healthy to load up on fast food.
What can you say - Trump's most fevered dreams come true! McDonald's food cures his baldness. Maybe he will try smearing french fries , Chicken McNuggets, and Filet O'fish on his head.
