Alex, a 7th grader from Florida, takes you on a journey through his entire science fair project, from idea to science fair. Alex heard that there are known cases of real “Zombie Burgers” — fast food burgers which are filled with so much preservatives, that they somehow stayed ‘alive’ well beyond the time they should have been long gone. There’s even a case of a person who has kept a fast food burger for over 12 years out in the open, and there’s no sign of mold or decay after all that time. Alex’s hypothesis is that if you leave out fresh burger meat, ground and cooked at home, then it should be more perishable (able to get moldy, decompose faster). That’s because it is more natural and not full of chemicals. Believe it or not, the fact that it’s more perishable means that it’s fresher meat and actually healthier to eat.
Alex wants to prove to people that even if they want to eat burgers (which usually aren’t considered a healthy food), they should try to avoid fast food and eat natural meat, to have the healthiest burgers possible. Join Alex on his science fair adventure, and see his progress, posted on Youtube, for MisterScienceFair.com, in regular installments!
