If reports are to be believed then there is a good news for those who are losing hair. According to the report A recent study has claimed that a chemical used in McDonald‘s french fries could potentially help cure baldness.
The study was conducted by Japanese scientists on mice found out that dimethylpolysiloxane, the silicone added to McDonald’s fries to stop cooking oil from frothing is capable of producing hair follicle germs in mass amounts. this could potentially help in regrowing hair if the experiment goes successfully in human beings too.
“These self-sorted hair follicle germs were shown to be capable of efficient hair-follicle and shaft generation upon intracutaneous transplantation into the backs of nude mice,” reads an excerpt from the study.

But there are also opposing voices to this idea which claims that no way a large amount of hair follicle germs can be produced in such a way and that one shouldn’t be misled by any such claims.
