There is another reason for you now to relish your favourite McDonald's french fries as a Japanese study found that crispy potatoes might be able to help with hair loss.
According to a recent study conducted by researchers at Yokohama National University in Japan, an ingredient used in McDonald's beloved potato sticks might help cure baldness. The ingredient dimethylpolysiloxane, a silicone added to the oil to prevent splashing, can help in the regrowth of new follicles.
However, before you jump on to french fries. There is a catch. The study was conducted on mice hair and not on human hair. Also, the study technically didn't prove that french fries would stimulate actual hair growth, but rather that it created hundreds of "vessels" that bio-engineered follicles could grow from.
