We all have those days where we are out running errands and we don’t have time to go home and grab supper. Fast food restaurants are everywhere. They are cheap and convenient. The problem is that the food is not healthy in any way, shape or form. The cheeseburgers that you can get at places like McDonald’s or Burger King are especially heinous on your stomach.
There is a video circulating that shows a chemist from the University of Nottingham dipping McDonald’s cheeseburger into a vat of hydrochloric acid. This is the acid that is found in your stomach that helps break the food down so that it can be digested. After three and a half hours in the vat the cheeseburger is downright disgusting. It comes out looking like a black sticky mess. Why would you want to put something in your body that breaks down so horribly when it comes into contact with the acid that is found in your stomach?
The cheeseburgers are loaded with additives and preservatives so the restaurants can get the most bang for their buck. The problem with this is that these preservatives do not break down well in the body and can add a lot of harmful chemicals into our system. The cheeseburgers aren’t the only offenders either. The French fries and chicken nuggets are just as bad. Videos have circulated social media sites showing foods that do no decompose or break down.
McDonald’s had issued a statement once these videos went viral in order to defend themselves and their food. They stated that it is not that the food does rot in certain conditions, but instead they dry out. When they cook the patties the burgers lose moisture. Without moisture they do not rot, they simply dry up. The french fries are the same. They dry up and shrivel but they do not break down on their own. They stated that if there is no moisture loss the foods will decompose just like any other food but when the buns are toasted they lose moisture and when the patties are steamed the moisture comes out as well.
