<div class="quote-block">What does a fast food cheeseburger look like when it's <b>sat on the shelf for a whole year</b>? Pretty much the same as it did on Day One. <a href="http://news.nationalpost.com/2011/12/29/zombie-cheeseburger-mcdonalds-patty-bun-cheese-unchanged-after-one-year-sitting-on-kitchen-counter/" target="_blank">Melanie Hesketh, a California nutritionist, bought a McDonald's cheeseburger</a> a year ago as an experiment. And then she let it sit around for a whole year, unwrapped and unrefrigerated, just to see what would happen. And ... <i><b>nothing happened</b></i></div>

Yeah, the first time I saw this was with a cheeseburger for 6 months and nothing happened so the ew factor is gone for me, it's just fact now.<br><br>
However... it is kind of scary to think that some people eat this kind of food everyday and not as a "treat". I don't even want to imagine what it could be doing to their bodies by eating food that obviously doesn't decompose.. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:">

And people eat this stuff and consider it food. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/spew.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":spew:">

I heard of a very similar experiment some years ago. It was one of the bigger factors in my decision to finally stop eating meat. It's also what led to me "quitting" McDonalds once and for all. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/spew.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":spew:">
