Hol' Up: Are McDonald's Fries The Secret To Everlasting Youth?

A new study confirms the unthinkable.

Published February 6, 2018

What we're about to tell you might just change your life... McDonald's fries are — wait for it — good for you?!

Well, with regard to one specific factor: the hairs on top of your head. Yes, you heard it here first, folks — McDonald's fries are the secret to curbing hair loss, according to an amazing new study, which we have no interest in debating at all!

Err, ok so maybe the study was conducted on mice — which doesn't necessarily translate accurately to humans — and maybe the secret ingredient is a weird chemical.

Even so, the possibility of any sort of positive benefits stemming from fry consumption has us all ears. The study showed that the ingredient dimethylpolysiloxane, an anti-foaming agent made of silicone added to the oil used to cook the tasty fries, according to Refinery29, can actually cure baldness. 

Something tells us the Resident-in-Chief, a.k.a. 45, will be very pleased to hear this news.
