    Seventh-Grader's Science Project Turns Up Some Disturbing Results

    Support from Big Brother

    Roberts got interested in the project after reading a newspaper article about bacteria in airplane water and decided to do something similar. Plus, she said, all of her friends chew on ice, and it drives her crazy.

    "I just picked the not-obvious choice," the seventh-grader said of her project.
    Her 18-year-old brother, Justus, is also an award-winning science fair veteran who said he has encouraged his little sister's interest in science.


    Justus said when Jasmine told him her idea for this project, "I gave her a high five, then said, 'You're a strange little kid.' But I supported her all the way."
    The restaurants also have taken notice of Roberts' project. Two began new sanitary policies and have asked her to come back and do her tests again.
    "First they appreciated the project," she said. "And one location even asked me to come back and test the temperature of their food."
    "Closer and closer to mankind comes their Reckoning: yet they heed not and they turn away" (21:1)

    " How can the one who chooses a hour of Haraam pleasure, above the eternal pleasure of Jannah, ever be considered as sane? "

    I wouldn't worry, AbdulMajid. Sampling method is everything in bacteria testing.

    Were the toilets flushed before sampling? If so then of course the bacteria levels will be close to that of water from the tap.

    Ice can't be tested for bacteria. It must be thawed first. How was bacterial growth during the thawing process restricted?

    Plus the guys is only 12.

    I remember seeing a similar peice about bacteria levels in dishwashing sponges. Also made you want to go :vomit:

    During the clip, they should the sponges that were tested came from real people's homes. They were taken to the lab in plastic bags. Now imagine taking your wet bath towel, stick it in a plastic bag, and let it sit in a warm car for an hour. Wil is smell the same as when you dried yourself with it?

      I'd recommend the restaurants focus on the contaminated hands of the employees.

      If the ice machine is contaminated, I'd hate to think what is on the chocolate doughnuts.
