Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal by Eric Schlosser


                          Amazon | Goodreads

I could write paragraphs about the subjects covered in this book but im not going to. It would be too tedious and long winded. Long story short: If you try and fuck with nature. It will fuck with you .

The truth is its going to take an E.coli epidemic before the American government and multinational corporations wake up to the fact that its not OK to grind up dead cattle, and feed it to... cattle. They're called herbivores for a reason. Researchers spend so much time figuring out what they can do but they never step back and if they should do it. That would take time...and time is money.

While people choose to eat this trash ( I refuse to call it food) the problems (along with our waistbands) will only get bigger. You cant sell a hamburger for 99 cents without someone, somewhere suffering the price. That suffering may land on the farmer, the animal or on you and me. Hell it's raining down on all 3. Chicken farmers get mere cents from the birds they raise. I'm lucky to live in a country where cattle are aloud free grazing for most of the year. In the U.S they are shoved into factory farms and force fed corn. They are mass fed antibiotics which in turn is leading to wide spread resistance in humans. It's a domino effect
Not as thoroughly researched as Salt Sugar Fat but well written and it gets its point across well. You may just think twice about what is in that burger the next time you unwrap it.

I took a star off as I thought Eric could have gotten to certain points a little quicker than he did in some chapters, but that's just my opinion.
