    That's insane. Someone needs to tell Morgan Spurlock so he can make a Revised Edition of "Super Size Me".

    Maybe the Egyptians had it wrong. Instead of embalming their dead, perhaps they should have deep fat fried them instead.

    Incidently, I used to work in a food testing laboratory. I can tell you from first hand experience that kabab meat has similar antiaging properties.

    Long lasting food is usually low in water or high in sugar, as bacteria don't like environments that are too dry or two sweet. That's why many deserts have such a long shelf life. The only reason I can think of why meat, like the kabab or the burger part, last well is chemical preservatives. A lot of meat you see for sale has been glazed. If you buy a chop or something from a supermarket and see that it glistens with rainbow hues in the light, almost like oil on water, than that's the glaze you can see. It's used for two reasons. First is to preserve the colour so it sells better, the second is to make it last longer. We used to do nitride testing on meat samples, to make sure the supplies kept within the legal limits of how much glazing they were allowed to use.

    Interesting video, but I don't agree with her saying that the amount of salt and preserves pumped into mcdonalds food is the reason people stay fat. that doesnt make any sense... the body's digestive system has to break food down into its components to pass through the bloodstream, there is no such thing as saturated fat molecules with salt or something that would preserve it longer or make it harder to remove from someone's fat deposits.

    im certainly not defending mcdonalds food as healthy here, because its awful, but as she pointed out the only thing that happened was the bun falling apart. the reason the food doesnt mold or deteriorate is because it's heavily processed and dries out. without moisture, mold or bacteria can't survive like it does on the raw potatos. the mcdonalds fries are deep fried and the hamburger patty and cheese are topped by what is practically a sponge.

    besides a cheap way to make it taste good, mcdonalds puts tons of salt on their food because it makes you feel thirsty and drinks have the highest profit margin of all restaurant food! (i would guess about 2000-3000%)
