A chemical used to make McDonald's fries could one day help regrow hair, Japanese scientists say

Scientists in Japan say that the ability to regrow hair might be found in using a chemical also used to cook McDonald's fries.

Researchers at Yokohama National University found that when they used the chemical dimethylpolysiloxane — found in silicone, which is added to oil to cook french fries at the fast-food restaurant, according to the Evening Standard— they could mass produce hair follicles that could grow hair when transplanted into mice.

Initial tests suggest this method could also be used to eventually treat hair loss in humans, they say.
