McDonald’s French Fries: a Cure for Baldness?!
Hear me out.
Yokohama National University got creative with some french fries. Mickey D's adds a chemical -- called dimethylpolysiloxane (yes I copy-and-pasted that) -- to their fries to prevent the fry oil from frothing. American's mouths provide enough froth.
The stem cell researchers call it a "simple" method. These are freaking scientists, so "simple" is on a different scale than you and me.
The gist is: the researchers were able to mass-produce "hair follicle germs," seeded an 'HFG' chip, implanted onto a lab mouse's body, and within days observed black hairs where the chips were transplanted: hair regrowth!
Now, the process is a little less 'simple' than just rubbing fry oil on your head. But if you that, just think of how delicious you'll smell!
