A new study claims that McDonald’s salty, iconic fries could curb or at least help with hair loss and male baldness, according to Japanese researchers.
The study claims that it’s not the salt or potato but the oil that the fries are cooked in are the active ingredient. Apparently, some miracle method contains a chemical called dimethylpolysiloxane which is…you guessed it in the oil of those delicious fries at one of the world’s most-recognizable fast food joints.
A little known fact is that dimethylpolysiloxane is also found in silly putty, breast implants and that caulk you use on the tub.
Before you run out and start chowing down on some fries this study has only been tested on rats and President Donald Trump is on a steady diet of McDonald’s cuisine and still has to fight hair loss and maintain his quiff with the prescription drug Propecia. And making matters worse was an embarrassing video that surfaced this week of President Trump’s extent of hair loss.
In fact, I have fought the good fight of male pattern baldness and whether I should throw in the towel on my hair. After a month on Rogaine, I found out that I would rather be bald than not be able to sexually perform at my peak. You can read the whole Rogaine story here.
Unless you have the metabolism to support it, avoid eating shitty fries on a daily basis or you could be battling baldness and a big gut. For now, watch for the rats staying on or leaving the sinking ship.
