Scientists have proposed to deal with baldness by using chemical is contained in the French fries. This was reported by the newspaper Metro.
A group of Japanese scientists were able to grow the embryos of hair follicles using a polydimethylsiloxane. This substance is added to the fries to the oil in which it is prepared, not foamed. It also flows through the oxygen — it’s handy for growing the hair follicle.
“The key to mass production was the choice of materials for the substrate for the vessel in which we grew the germs of the follicle,” explained Professor Specified Fukuda (Fukuda Junji) from the University of Yokohama.
Using polydimethylsiloxane managed to grow five thousands of embryos. They were transplanted in mice, and a few days they grew a few tufts of hair. Follicles, according to Fukuda, “repeated the life cycle of normal hair”. Preliminary experiments proved that the method works in humans.
In November 2017, it was reported the development of a drug to combat baldness by South Korean scientists. Experiments conducted on mice have proven that after 28 days growth of hair from animals was resumed.
