Chemical in McDonald's Fries Might Cure Baldness

Scientists in Japan say that a cure for baldness could be found using a chemical that is also used to cook McDonald’s fries.

Dimethylpolysiloxane, which is found in silicone, is added to oil to cook french fries at the fast-food restaurant, according to the Evening Standard

Researchers at Yokohama National University (YMU) found that when they used this chemical they were able to mass produce hair follicles, which could grow hair once transplanted into mice.

Initial tests suggest this "simple" method could also be used to treat hair loss in humans
