February 5, 2018A cure for baldness could be on the horizon thanks to a chemical used in McDonald’s fries. Scientists have regrown hair in mice using a ‘simple’ technique – using human stem cells.

The Japanese team’s breakthrough came after they managed to mass produce ‘hair follicle germs’ (HFGs) in the lab for the first time. These are the cells that fuel follicle development. They are the ‘Holy Grail’ of hair loss research, as they have never been regenerated before. Prof Fukuda said: ‘This simple method is very robust and promising.

February 5, 2018. If you’re fond of vaping, cinnamon, vanilla and butter e-cigarette flavours, we have some bad news. Mixing them up is even worse, a new study found. Flavouring chemicals and liquids used in the battery-powered devices are toxic to the white cells in the blood, warn scientists. Exposure can cause significant inflammation to monocytes – the biggest type of white blood cell in the immune system that combat bacteria and viruses. The study, published in the journal Frontiers in Physiology, adds to growing evidence on the harmful health effects of e-cigarettes. Dr Thivanka Muthumalage, of Rochester University, said, ‘Cinnamon, vanilla and butter flavouring chemicals were the most toxic but our research showed mixing flavours of e-liquids caused by far the most toxicity to white blood cells. E-cigarettes may carry health risks, but these are nowhere near the risks of continuing to smoke tobacco. Metro News.
