Studies find that 40% of men experience noticeable hair loss by the age of 35, and 65% by the time they’re 60-years-old. But what if a chemical that is found in McDonald’s French fries could help reverse balding? I’ll admit, this sounds like some made-up “reason” from a 9-year-old in a clever ruse to get his balding father to buy McDonald’s French fries. But it turns out there’s actually some science behind this absurd theory of an ingredient in deep-fried potato sticks curing baldness.

A new study by Japanese researchers claims that they have found a chemical, which is found in McDonald’s fries, that can reverse baldness. Professor Junji Fukuda of the Yokohama National University recently published a paper in the journal Biomaterials. The research paper states that they found healing properties in the chemical dimethylpolysiloxane (DMPS), which is found in silicone and is also added to oil to cook french fries at McDonald’s.
