My favourite vegetable has to be potatoes.
They are so versatile so its really impossible to get bored of it—fried, baked and mashed.
But I have to admit that frying them is the best way to enjoy it in its entirety.
French fry purveyors would admit that McDonald’s fries are and will be the best and it is also the root of all lover’s problems—no one wants to share the salty, golden beauties.
Now, you have one more reason to not share your fries, especially if you have a receding hairline.
McDonald’s fries can cure baldness
According to a study published in Biomaterials Journal, researchers at Yokohama National University found a way to regenerate follicle development using an ingredient found in McDonald’s french fries.
The ingredient in question is dimethylpolysiloxane, a silicone that is added to McDonald’s fries which prevents the cooking oil from frothing, Newsweek reported.
They tested it on mice
Unfortunately, the study was tested on animals.
With that said, they managed to create hair follicle germs (HFG) using dimethylpolysiloxane.
They created 5,000 HFGs concurrently which was then transplanted into the hairless mice.
Sooner than you know it, the hairless mice started growing hair.
Apparently, this is a breakthrough as it is quite difficult to regenerate HFGs which help to promote follicle development.
Professor Junji Fukuda of Yokohama National University said: “The key for the mass production of HFGs was a choice of substrate materials for culture vessel.”
“We used oxygen-permeable dimethylpolysiloxane (PDMS) at the bottom of culture vessel, and it worked very well,” he added.
Just hang on…
Before you start smearing McDonald’s fries on your shiny scalp, the said ingredient is used to create the HFGs, which mean, on its own, it won’t make your hair grow back.
The study does seem promising as Junji Fukuda mentioned that the technique will improve human hair regenerative therapy to treat hair loss such as androgenic alopecia.
But, hey, is it going to stop us from eating McDonald’s fries?
That is a resounding no!
