Dipping McDonalds Cheeseburger In Hydrochloric Acid
You can guess some nasty things happen to food as its digesting in your stomach, but how often do you get to actually witness it happen?
Scientists didn’t just put some burgers in a container and let them go bad and get moldy and rotten, this is actually an illustration of what a McDonalds Cheeseburger goes through in our gut.
Researchers from The University of Nottingham filled a container with hydrochloric acid solution, a chemical found in our stomachs that supports the digestive process, and dipped a burger in it for 3 and 1/2 hours.
The results were disgusting, as the burger turned into black sludge. Hydrochloric acid breaks down food in the early stages of digestion, so that means one of the first things that McDonald’s cheeseburger does when hitting your stomach is turn into something nasty.
