I like to read about and try out health food and such. I'd never heard of this before, but some people talk about how some fast food will never rot. If you leave it out, it will simply become stale but look exactly as it did before.
A nutritionist recently tried an experiment. She left a Happy Meal out on her shelf for an entire year and was shocked when it never decomposed. It never smelled. It basically stayed the same. Ugh. Makes you wonder what the effect on a kid's body is. Amy at Health Begins with Mom gives the rule of thumb: If it can sit for a long time without rotting or bugs and pests won't eat it, why would you?
