New Study Shows McDonald’s Fries Chemical May Cure Baldness

A stem cell research team from Yokohama National University have used a “simple” method to regrow the hair on mice with dimethylpolysiloxane, the silicone added to McDonald’s fries to stop cooking oil from frothing.


They think the same idea will transfer to human cells. 

“The key for the mass production of HFGs was a choice of substrate materials for the culture vessel,” Professor Junji Fukuda, of Yokohama National University, said in the study. “We used oxygen-permeable dimethylpolysiloxane (PDMS) at the bottom of culture vessel, and it worked very well.”
