McDonald’s French Fries: More than Just Delicious?

Posted: Friday, February 2nd, 2018

Have you heard? A new study published in the Biomaterials journal states that a chemical used to make McDonald’s golden fries, called dimethylpolysiloxane, can help to stimulate hair growth. So what does this mean exactly?

According to the study, scientists in Japan found that dimethylpolysiloxane was a factor in producing mass amounts of hair follicle germs (HFGs) on hairless mice. It just so happens that this chemical is used by the fast food chain giant to reduce oil splatter when making their fried foods, like French fries. Although the chemical was successful in generating hair during the study, its findings also made clear that it has not stimulated hair growth by itself because researchers used dimethylpolysiloxane as part of an “oxygen permeable” solution. In other words, you can’t eat your way to hair growth through fries.

Despite the fact that McDonald’s French fries can’t help to stimulate hair growth, this study is extremely helpful because its findings could lead to a potential strategy for hair generation.
