Say What? Can McDonald's French Fries CURE Baldness?

I think it's safe to say, most men, if they had the choice, would opt not to lose their hair.

Here are the numbers: By the age of 35, approximately two-thirds of guys will experience “some form” of hair loss. By the time 50 rolls around, about 85% of guys will be sporting hair that’s “significantly thinner.” Fortunately, there’s generally a McDonald’s nearby. Wait, what?

Turns out, researchers from Yokohama National University says there’s may be a legitimate cure in one of the ingredients ofAmerica’s favorite French fry. It seems an additive that McDonald’s uses in their French Fry oil – dimethylpolysiloxane – was “able to regrow hair on mice” and “mass produces hair-follicle germs.”

None of this means that if you down a bunch of Mickey-D fries, you’ll suddenly have hair like George Clooney or David Hasselhoff. You also shouldn't pour a vat of hot oil on your head in the hopes of maintaining your flowing locks. It does mean, however, that there are encouraging signs out there for the balding.
