I’ll Have a Side of Hair With That!


Could a trip to the golden arches lead to Goldilocks?

It is not yet 1st April, but this week, scientists at Japan’s Yokohama National University have announced that a chemical added to McDonald’s french fry oil can help re-grow hair. The chemical, dimethylpolysiloxane, is a type of silicone which is added to the oil to stop it frothing and help achieve the fries’ crispy effect.

They don’t say how many french fries you need to eat per day to get results but it’s probably worth not swapping one problem for another!

However it apparently works on mice very well!
