if you love fast food, read this...

... in 1996, karen hanrahan bought a mcd hamburger. she didn't eat it but kept it in a sandwich box.

in 2008, she took a photo of the burger and updated her site in 2009 with the photo of the burger as well.

in total 13 years has passed and the burger still hasn't decomposed. not sure about status now though...

it doesn't matter. if it hasn't decomposed in 6 months (and this is already a stretch), it's not food!

photo below is taken in 2010. 14 year old burger on your left. new burger on your right.

check out these links.

from dr mercola's site,  this is info taken from mcd's site. this hamburger bun consists of

"Enriched flour (bleached wheat flour, malted barley flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid, enzymes), water, high fructose corn syrup, sugar, yeast, soybean oil and/or partially hydrogenated soybean oil, contains 2% or less of the following: salt, calcium sulfate, calcium carbonate, wheat gluten, ammonium sulfate, ammonium chloride, dough conditioners (sodium stearoyl lactylate, datem, ascorbic acid, azodicarbonamide, mono- and diglycerides, ethoxylated monoglycerides, monocalcium phosphate, enzymes, guar gum, calcium peroxide, soy flour), calcium propionate and sodium propionate (preservatives), soy lecithin."

simple life maxim. 
if you can't pronounce it, don't eat it! 
if you don't know what is it, don't eat it! 

 we bake our own bread here, using artisanal methods of yesteryears and our bread consists of :   
 organic whole wheat flour, salt, oil and water

if you don't bother baking your own bread, perhaps you'll think twice about buying those "healty" commercial bread?
