Scientists have discovered one of the chemicals used in McDonald’s fries could cure baldness.
A research team from Yokohama National University in Japan has successfully used dimethlypolysiloxane to regrow hair in mice.
Dimethlypolysiloxane is added to McDonald’s fries to stop the cooking oil from foaming.
In the study, the ingredient allowed oxygen to easily pass through the hair follicle, and create more hair.
The study marks the first time hair follicles have been regrown.
Early tests have indicated the technique will be just as successful on humans.
