MacDonalds Food Last So Long - FREAKY

The weird thing for me is the fact that it didn't attract bugs (although where the food was placed is not really mentioned; like does the office normally get a lot of bugs?). There are some explanations, I think.

I always hear so much about fats and salt in foods. Salt was used for preserving food for eons (no pun intended). Fats seem to have a special place in preservation when you consider how long the Twinkie lasts (and how flammable it is).

Let's ignore how too much salt or too much fat is bad for your health. But if it is not 'natural' things like salt and fat that are keeping bugs away, then what is?
