Karen Hanrahan’s McDonald’s Burger
Ms. Hanrahan’s burger was purchased from McDonald’s in 1996. She has made it clear, ” the burger has remained unchanged”. The burger along with fries was kept in a plastic container.
McDonald’s is not the only company that loads their hamburgers with sodium. Its that simple, sodium is a preservative and if you just leave the burger alone and not seal it in a moisure rich environment it will not deteriorate over time, much like any salt cured meat.
The problem is not just with McDonald’s- it’s a problem with all the fast food restaurants and many packaged food products. Sodium is a killer when taken in large doses and fast food is LOADED with sodium.
It’s common knowledge that fast food including McDonald’s’ offerings are just plain bad for you.
Whether this picture is the real thing does not really matter, at least it heightens our awareness of the dangers which are inherent in eating fast foods.
