No guy likes the thought of going bald – even though there are some that look 100% better that way. 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 of America’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.”
Now, none of this means that if you down a bunch of Mickey-D fries, you’ll suddenly look like David Hasselhoff. Nor, should any of you 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.
