Spam survey, do you really want to know?

Back in April, McAfee launched an experiment designed as a tribute to Morgan Spurlock’s Super-Size Me documentary on eating nothing but McDonald’s food for 30 days. Instead of fast food, however, McAfee gathered a group of some 50 volunteers from Australia, Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, The Netherlands, Spain, the US, and the UK. Once this elite group of brave souls had been assembled, McAfee put them on a diet of pure spam.

No, we’re not referring to the creamy mounds of whipped pig nestled inside a pop-top container—although 30 days of eating it might make an interesting experiment in and of itself—but the kind of spam that arrives via your inbox and tempts you with online degrees, job offers, free XBox 360s, and magnanimous gifts from your great-uncle Dmitri back in Russia.
