Happy Meal that even Bacteria Rejects

This is a photo of a McDonald's Happy Meal that, after being left sitting in a living room for 180 days, looks almost exactly the same as the freshly bought product.
American artist Sally Davies photographed the Happy Meal every day for about six months, documenting the changes that she expected to occur.
Only, there don't seem to be many changes at all. No evidence of mould. No decomposition.

"Very little has changed," Ms Davies admitted to WAtoday.com.au.
"The meat has shrank a little as it dried out.  But other than that, it looks pretty much like when I bought it."
Ms Davies said she chose a McDonald's product for her project simply because it was the closest fast food chain to her New York home.

Sally Davies decided to test the rumor that a fast food burger could last months or years without decomposing.
She decided to embark on the unusual photography idea after reading that a school teacher had kept a burger which failed to decompose for 12 years and used it in her classroom as an example to students. She planned to photograph the decomposing burger every day to monitor the progress, expecting it to rot within a few days.
But she discovered little difference between the photographs from day one through to day 180.
Ms Davies, who insists she has not tampered with the Happy Meal, said her photographic evidence of the lack of decomposition said a lot about the dangers of eating fast food.
While the experiment was conducted in the US, a McDonald's Australia spokeswoman said the outcome of Ms Davies project seemed "virtually impossible".
"McDonald's Australia sources its ingredients from the same producers that supply the bread, meat, cheese and vegetables that are available on Australian supermarket shelves," company spokeswoman Laura Keith said.
"Under normal conditions, most foods will deteriorate and certainly our food is no different. So without knowing the full detail of Sally's project, this outcome seems virtually impossible."
But Ms Davies defended the integrity of her project.
"I heard they are defending their food and saying it is 100 per cent biodegradable. And that I have tampered with this food somehow to achieve this end," Ms Davies said.
"I am an artist, not a scientist. I do not claim to know what is in this food. I can only show you photographs of what it looks like in my living room after 180 days. And you can make your own conclusion."
Ms Davies said McDonald's was in the business of making money, and she would not argue with their freedom to sell what they do.
"It all depends on how much control you want to have over your own life," she said.
"I prefer to cook at home and eat organic fresh fruits and vegetables, and stay out of the doctor's office. When I am an old person, my goal is to be healthy and not be on any medication for anything. And so far, my diet is working."

wow!!! this amazed me alot. I like their food and stuff but after reading this article, hmmmm I will think about it if I still want to go there. No wonder people who always eat there is obese or most of them has medical problems. It's better to cook your own burger, aside that it is fresh and you know what's in it. Much more healthier and SAFE!!!!

Eating fruits

   This is about when to eat fruits and when to drink cold water.
Many people think that just eating fruits, you'll get all the vitamins you need.  We don't know that there is a certain time when to eat it. We usually eat fruits after a meal, but there was a study that we should eat fruits on an EMPTY STOMACH!!!

   YES!!! empty stomach. Some people say that after eating bananas, it will make them go to the bathroom or eating durian that makes them bloat. Let's put it this way, when we're eating our meal it will go straight to our stomach then it will begin to digest with all the gastric acid and when the fruit comes in our stomach gastric juices and the food will  begin to spoil. When fruits mixed with putrefying foods and gas, hence we bloat. If we mastered the correct way of eating fruits we will have the energy, beauty, health, and the desired weight. Do not drink juices that has been cooked. Cooking fruits destroys all the vitamins that we need. 
   When you want to cleanse your body, go into 3-days fruit fast. Eat fruits and drink fresh fruit juice and you will be surprise how radiant and fresh you look after that.

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is known to be a medicinal plant. It has been studied that it helps us in so many diseases like diabetes, wound, burn healing, minor infections, and a lot of more, We can also  use aloe vera for our hairs, to make it more thicker and smoother.

Sunset in Marshfield,Mo. Taken last Spring, I can't stop myself to take pictures of it. It was like a breath taking experienced watching the sun goes down. Everyday, I go up to the hill and watched it. It will only take 15 minutes for everything. So beautiful and perfect that will make you forget everything. It is also a perfect place to be with your loved ones.

Was it Worth it?

What a perfect day to make a blog. Woke up this morning with the most wonderful person in my life, my husband. Before I got married my life is full of excitement and lots of friends. I called my friends backed home, for they we're having fun next to the water falls. I missed them so much. Love to be with them one of this days. Left my very exciting life for a routine life I have now, but if you ask me "Was it Worth it?"...... YES!! His worth everything. If I have to give-up another exciting life to be with him, I won't hesitate to do it all over again.  I love him so much to give everything I have. Now, I love the life I have. Silent but full of love and caress.

This is my first blog, hope you'll have fun reading it. Well, I think I need to introduce myself first. I"m a Filipina, a year and a half happily married, no kids but hopefully we get one someday. Tried it twice this year but sadly they both did not made it. I think something wrong inside me, but we did not lose hope from what happened. God has a proposed and we will just wait for the time that it will come. 
The first year of our marriage was fun. Since we only knew each other for like 6months and got married. It's like knowing each other and loving him for every seconds that we're together. There are tough times, but we always make sure not to sleep without patching things together. Stayed home for quite awhile, and now I'm ready to face the world of REALITY.
Married life is not bad at all, like I picture it out before. Got hurt twice, left twice and picked-up myself twice. Well. that's life. Now, I see it why. Simply because there is someone out there waiting and searching for me. 
Love him so much.
