What Happens When A McDonalds Cheeseburger Is In Your Stomach
Okay I must admit that I LOVE McDonalds, yes it definitely is a downfall of mine. I don’t eat it often maybe once every few months or so I do and it sure hits the spot
It’s funny how videos and articles like the one below should normally turn someone off, and absolutely disgust them from ever wanting to eat McDonalds again. As gross is this is McDonalds is still a guilty pleasure of mine and I will most likely go there again in a few months and eat my mcnugget’s with fries and a diet coke!
So.. What happen when a cheeseburger gets into your stomach?!
If you are anything like me that McDonalds tastes sooo good and a few minutes later you are regretting that decision to scarf it down your throat.
We never see what really happens to the McDonalds in our stomachs.
“You can assume that some pretty disgusting things happen while your food is digesting in your gut, but it’s not often that you get to actually see it happen.
This isn’t really like the Super Size Me documentary, where they put some burgers in a container and let them get moldy and rotten, this is merely an illustration of what that tasty cheeseburger goes through in our stomach. Why? Because science. Also, because the internet.
Researchers from The University of Nottingham filled a container with hydrochloric acid solution, a chemical found in our stomachs that aids in the digestive process, and dipped a burger in it for 3 and 1/2 hours.
The results were grimy, as the burger turned into a 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 goop. Now, someone try this with a kale salad and get back to us. ”
Does this change your views on McDonalds or are you like me and will probably still eat it once in awhile?
