Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser

Both funny and terrifying, Fast Food Nation will make you think twice before you say “super-size it” and might make you realize you don’t want to be one of “over billions served”. Author, Eric Schlosser examines the birth and growth of fast food establishments in America.

In his no holds-barred exploration of the fast-food industry he reveals the dark side of the all-American meal. In harrowing detail, the book discusses the process of beef slaughter and confirms those urban tales about what in fact "lurks between those sesame seed buns." It is no longer where’s the beef, but where’s the e-coli? The movie adapted off the book has an eerily similar undercurrent to Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle, a book that painted a vivid portrait of life and death in a turn-of-the-century American meat-packing factory. Sinclair’s grim indictment led to government regulations of the food industry.

Schlosser cites that fast food culture is a product of American history where the pace of life has become faster, more automated and homogenized, think assembly line at car factories and Levitt homes. In the end, you will certainly think twice about “having it your way” and might even consider a healthy detox program.
