Don't drink the McWater

Enter Jasmine Roberts, a 15 year old high school student in Tampa, Florida. Clearly an inquisitive young woman, she hypothesized that the ice machines in fast food restaurants would be great homes for bacteria.

So what she did was collect ice from 5 different fast food restaurants and plated the melted liquid on agar (bacteria food).

Here's where you get to smile. For a comparison group, she used toilet water from those same restaurants.

The results?

In Jasmine's words, "I never thought the toilet water would be cleaner"

Don't drink the McWater...or at the very least, don't have the McIce.
