The Doctors examine a headline that might have given bald people hope for fuller heads of hair simply by eating fast food French fries?
The panel discusses a study that caused the headline “Fast Food Fries Cure Baldness.” They explain the study examined the chemical, oxygen-permeable dimethylpolysiloxane (PDMS), which is used when preparing fries. The study found that PDMS (which is used in small amounts in fast food French fries) grew hair on rodents, but The Doctors note that the study was not about eating fries and focused on PDMS. The chemical is meant to prevent the foaming and splattering of oil while the fries cook.
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork says, “Eating French fries is not going to help your hair.”
The Doctors note there is no cure for losing your hair, but there are some medications that may help. They also say eating healthy, exercising, not smoking and not drinking may improve your overall health, which may also help your hair.
