Burger in Acid

We were having a discussion today while analyzing a bar graph that relates to the caloric needs of teenagers. This brought up the topic of making healthy choices. Some students felt that fast food is a healthy choice and I brought up the studies that had been done recently on fast food and the chemicals they contain. The students were intrigued by the movie Super Size Me as well as the pink goop that is used to make chicken nuggets. I asked if anyone had seen the video that shows a burger being dissolved in hydrochloric acid….many hadn’t! Well here it is for your viewing pleasure! Please note that this is NOT bashing one company over another, and this is NOT what can happen in your body as we digest our food, we don’t ingest an entire burger, un-chewed..rather it just gets you thinking about what you put into your body…ENJOY!!
