Burgers that don't decay

Here's a 1996 McDonalds burger

And here's a guy that keeps a burger museum (?!)

Wow, that's disgusting - but a great way to display how nasty fast food can be. I just recently went back to raw and living... those links made me think that Pukie was just around the corner. I tell all of my friends that if their food isn't going to wilt, rot, or die within a few days, then it has no nutritional value

Thanks for sharing, Alicia! I'm forwarding that in an e-mail to my fast food-eating friends.

Re: Burgers that don't decay

I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to call BS on this one. Bread, no matter how crappy, does not stick around for that long without decaying. And I doubt their bread is "artificial". Flour is dirt cheap, probably cheaper than any artificial item you can find.

Same with the burger, though that one is maybe more plausible.

Unless these two were frozen, in a deep freezer, I call BS.

My "Health Class" teacher did a burger museaum. It's no joke. The first week of school, she would buy a burger and have a small glass case (not sealed) made for it. She did it at the beginning of every year and left them on display so we knew there was no trickery. The one for my year looked just the same as the one she did her first year of doing it and she had about a half dozen burgers on display in the back of the class.

No BS. I am raising the "Truth Flag" here.

Re: Burgers that don't decay

I have a seen a demo like this before a few years ago at USAG Region 1 Gymnastics Congress at a booth. Interesting. I'm not sure what is causing it but I was thinking preservatives and salt.

Re: Burgers that don't decay

Watch "Supersize Me"....same experiment, same result...even with the fries....and he also compares it to the decay rate of a hamburger and bun made with real bread and meat.

Re: Burgers that don't decay

Some people have lost weight from eating at McDonald's everyday. That burger looks good. I'm going to eat some soon.

Ok, it's not the best stuff in the world for you to munch on, but come on...lets be real here!
