But whats up with a burger not even going off after 3 years :D

Some life extension specialists recommend purposely adding preservatives to our diet, however, I am pretty sure that this cr*p about the hamburgers lasting "forever" is another urban myth with no basis in fact.

I have never seen any proof of this anywhere that was believable by anyone without an axe to grind. :o

well they did a study on it in australia and tested this 3 year old cheese burger with a fresh one and they found there was nothing different.

The point is you should not eat it regulary as its not really good for you

Could you post a link to this study?

I couldn't find any mention of it - anywhere - however I did find a simular experiment by someone out to get McDonald's that took place and after 2 weeks the McDonald's Burger had mold on it as did the fries.

Is it possible that the study you refer to is a blatant lie and urban myth as I have been saying?

I dont have a link, it was on the news here in Oz, im sure many oz viewer here can confirm it as they kept playing it in the adverts.

They only tested the cheese burger and nothing else. Also Mcdonalds big mac's experiments are done at alot of public schools here in Oz and they have a big mac and a local burger and have it in a box for 2 weeks and the local burger goes off and stinks bad while he big mac looks exactly the same

I just ate mcdonalds, I think im addicted too it. Ate a great McOZ burger (you guys prob have no idea) and it tastes so <deleted> good.

Its crap but I just keep going back. It must have something in it that makes you addicted I reckon. I mean other fast food is just as good if not better but most shopping centres that have a mcdonalds, the line kills the other chains by double.

Im suspicous :o

Maybe its all the perservatives

You’ve just highlighted one nasty little habit MacDonald’s have and that is trying to inveigle their way into popularity with the local culture by introducing a product based on some local dish.

One time I was driving down to Sydney with a friend who was moaning on and on that he wanted a burger. I refused to eat a MacDonald’s insisting on waiting till I found a traditional roadhouse, and after about 4 hours we found one on the old Pacific highway…..one of the best burgers I’ve ever eaten and of course being an Aussie burger, with a great big slab of beetroot. My mate was overwhelmed…he’d forgotten what a good burger tasted like! So MacDonald stick a thin slice of beetroot in it and call it an Aussie burger….I bet they pronounce it Ossey not Ozzey too!

If you go to Macdonald’s in UK they have done the same - the Tandoori burger (also available in Oz) and in Thailand they promote a lot of chicken based muck as many people here won’t eat beef or anything contaminated by beef…in the end it’s all the same just a different label. I doubt if you could even tell the difference in a blindfold test.

MCD does very well catering to local tastes around the world. This has been a huge profitable success for them

The immortal "three year" McDonald's hamburger is suddenly down to "two weeks" (even though we have evidence of one that is molded in the same amount of time) and McDonald's are supposedly criminals for including foods on their menu that reflect local tastes.

Must be a full moon! :o

REPORTER: Rohan Wenn

BROADCAST DATE: May 22, 2006

Today Tonight showed two McDonalds cheeseburgers: one bought today and one bought in 2003.

The 2003 cheeseburger had never been in a fridge or freezer, but there was no mould on it thanks to preservatives.

But who needs a burger that is going to keep for three years or longer? And what side effects do these preservatives have on us?

Health expert Sue Dengate has been studying these questions for a long time.

"It's hard for people to remember that is was only about 30 years ago where ... people didn't eat the additives so often," Ms Dengate said.

"And the problem is, it's all related to dose. So the more you eat, the more likely you are to be affected."

Some preservatives and additives have been shown to cause headaches, insomnia, stomach aches, skin irritations and asthma.

They can also lead to irritability, an inability to concentrate, boisterous and antisocial behaviour. While adults are affected by these additives, children seem more prone to problems.

"There are some additives that are associated with itchy skin rashes," Ms Dengate said.

"And with those you can also get swelling of the lips and tongue, and obviously swelling of the tongue can be life-threatening."

Sue Dengate decided to put Palmers Island Primary School in NSW on a preservative- and additive-free diet and filmed the results.

For many of them, it was the first time they realised there were so many bad chemicals in their food.

Parents were asked to cut additives from their children's diets and the school was provided an additive-free breakfast at no cost.

"There was enough of an improvement that people were saying, 'yes, we're seeing this improvement' and the parents were surprised that there had been," Ms Dengate said.

By the end of week one, even the students had noticed differences in their own behaviour.

The teachers were also over the moon.

"I found certain kids had a longer attention span and they were able to concentrate and work more effectively for that period of time," a teacher said.

Next, Sue decided to try something different. She took the students to the local McDonalds and allowed them to buy food loaded with preservatives, artificial colours and other additives.

"They went feral," she said. "They were restless, they were cheeky, they were loud."

"All the things that you don't want kids to be in the classroom."

The experiment supported the work of Superintendent Peter Bennett from the UK, who made headlines when he revealed a juvenile delinquent had given up a life of crime after it had been discovered he was allergic to milk and tomatoes.

After that story, Superintendent Bennett put eight of the local juvenile delinquents on a preservative- and additive-free diet.

Packets can also be confusing. A packet of Cheezels appeared not to have any artificial flavours, but the nutritional panel in the back showed the corn chips did contain artificial flavour enhancers.

"Flavour enhancers can cause a very wide range of problems," Ms Dengate said.

"Flavour enhancers are worse, much worse than artificial flavours."

Sue Dengate argues that as long as the big food companies can get away with it, they will continue to use unnecessary additives and preservatives in their foods, unless we give them a reason to change.

"Vote with your dollar," she said.

"Every time you spend a dollar, you are sending a message to the food companies, and so if you choose additive-free food, they will start listening."

Where is the LINK to the article to show that it is legit and not something just made up by some nut? You copied it from somewhere. Where is the LINK? :D

This experiment showed that the McDonald's Burger had mold on it within "several weeks" which is a LOT less than 3 years. They also mention another experiment in which the McDonald's hamburger decayed exactly like a "normal" hamburger:

Incidentally, Morgan Spurlock used individual glass jars for his experiment and didn't identify any appreciable differences in burger decay.

Looks to me like someone has an axe to grind. :o

whatever you wanna say about MacDs they sure do got good quality control...the Big Mac that you order in Mexico City tastes the same as what you get in BKK...

to think that they got MacDs quality control people covering the world...('your mission, should you choose to take it, is to fly to Kabul/Bagdad to confirm that MacD's quality standards are not compromised...')

a large, muscular and heavily armed flak jacketed individual with a skin head and raybans emerges menacingly from a US marine humvee...

I have eaten burger king in Iraq (burger king has a stranglehod there!) (Baghdad and the Anbar Province) and in Kuwait...yep, they taste the same as they would in the states....and nobody has a skinned head in Iraq...you'd get a sunburn?!

U, do you have shares in McD ?

No, I just get tired of people thinking that they are really clever by slagging them off, while slinking in there and carrying away a whole bag of burgers under their coat.

As to fast-food in general being healthy, I think that it doesn't affect one's health one way or the other if eaten in moderation, but if eaten constantly, it has too much fat and sugar.

Moderation - in almost anything - will solve problems before they start. :o
