I am 32-years-old, and bald. Clearly I am not ashamed of it or I wouldn't have just told you. But having hair would be cool. And getting it by eating McDonald's French Fries sounds even cooler!
Sadly, eating the best fries on Earth won't re-grow your hair, but an ingredient in them may!
Researchers at Japan's Yokohama National University used a chemical found in the fries to grow hair follicles on mice, according to a study published in the peer-reviewed journal Biomaterials.
The study focuses on the large-scale transportation of hair follicles to areas where there is no hair. Researchers used dimethylpolysiloxane as part of an "oxygen permeable" solution to prepare 5,000 hair follicle germs.
Dimethylpolysiloxane sounds like something that might kill you, but in reality it makes your fries taste amazing and may cure baldness... Who knew?!
