    8. This was full of interesting information and I learned a lot, both about the origins of modern fast food and how the industry has had such an influence on how modern food is mainly produced It was interesting, enlightening and at times, straight up disgusting The version of the book that I read was written for a middle grade, young adult audience That being said, my review is based with that audience in mind The writing for that level was pretty uneven Most of the book was written on a level app [...]


    9. So, I decided to read Chew on This because as I have said previously in different reviews that I have always struggled with my weight Luckily enough, I am not a huge fan of fast food because it makes me sick, although, I have always wondered why a salad from McDonalds costs 7.00 and a hamburger costs 1.00 That is the reason that America has one of the highest obesity rates in the world As I read this book, I found it very interesting to know that although fast food places claim to have all natur [...]

    13. I started reading this book at the end of September 2014 when I found it while browsing through my large bookshelf at home After reading the first few chapters, the book proved to be interesting and showed even than what I had heard about large chain restaurants.One thing that impressed me in the book was how the author was able to so vividly describe the disgusting jungles of factories pg.82 where the meat inside of fast food comes from He described how the meat was sliced from the animals, ho [...]


    14. I read Fast Food Nation a few years ago and was shocked by what I read This book is a condensed version of the former, written especially for the student population, as it focuses on the way the fast food industry has changed American society, and in many ways, puts children at risk Schlosser gives kids a look at how soda companies and fast food businesses hook children from an early age, and the impact it can have on individual health He also presents the history of the fast food business, whi [...]

The book starts talking about how McDonald s got started by Ray Kroc Eventually, advertisers marketed to kids and then the toys came out so that it would entice the kids to buying food in order to get the toy It s the branding of children, which almost seems like brainwashing, into mini consumers.Along the way, however, the jobs at fast food places aren t that great One particular chapter I ll go into detail about how they treat their workers.These little towns thrived on their own But through [...]

My fascination with Chew On This was sparked by reading The Omnivore s Dilemma for a school assignment Similar to Michael Pollan s The Omnivore s Dilemma, this book depicts the secrets of multi million companies like McDonald s and Coca Cola This novel struck me because I ve never thought of what went into my burger or vegetarian side of fries.Eric Schlosser and Charles Wilson will take you on a rather disturbing adventure of the production of meat and give awareness of the evolution of the fast [...]

    26. This is a great book and although it s a kids non fiction title it was dense enough for an adult to get something out of reading it At 260 odd pages it s not slight by any means, and does pack a punch in terms of research The star off is for grammatical problems, i.e using insure for ensure enough times for me to notice it.I have always had a fuzzy headed notion that the famous fast food places started out as innocent mom n pop restaurants that were changed by money men over time into the soul s [...]
