This I feel is now a classic book in the wrongs going on in the food making world Although this is from 2001 I feel many of the revelations are still true unfortunately It is US centric yet at least some of the facts appear worldwide depending sometimes on the country But it did make me feel wary about eating fast food if I was traveling in USThis book of 3 years of research talks about the industry of fast food and its conseuences on people animals and nature There are notes and a bibliography at the end and two afterwords The city of Colorado Springs and some other places near it are the example centers for many stories withinThis is not a story merely of dangers within food and on treatment of animals but also on people suffering because of it Some of the people are given here as examples of this and one is left with great sadness after reading their fate I will now go on to list the chapters The book is divided in two first part talk mostly about the business and people behind the counter the second part focuses on food and global businessview spoiler 1 Beginnings history of many fast food companies including the influence of car culture and looks of each place 2 Getting to the kids Disney s involvement advertising the toys 3 The staff in US often teens part time unskilled low pay causing dropping out of school sometimes the stricts rules unpaid overworking lack of unions violence in the workplace 4 Being a franchisee incl history rules success not guaranteed conflicts with the franchiser Subway esp bad 5 Potatoes french fries how it is done how farmers suffer esp smaller where the good taste comes from natural flavor not necessarily healthier than the beef tallow used before Here we find the often uoted ingredients list for stuff in strawberry milkshake long and hair rising 6 Cattle business here we find ranchers suffering just like the potato farmers above small plots merging into bigger ones Similar is also going on with poultry growers Some ranchers commit suicide like the example of Hank here 7 Meatpacking industry workers often illegal sometimes immigrants often illiterate and unaware of any rights high turnover rate usual lasting time 3 months creating poverty and crimedrug ridden areas around the smell from feedlots the shit history from urban to rural away from unions 8 Health risks of workers in said industry from knife cut scars to DEATH the working conditions are dangerous especially because of the speed demanded many accidents go unreported and injury reviews are often falsified abusive supervisors especially for women who get verbalsexual abuse also from male workers especially bad for sanitation crew who work with chroline mixed hot water poor visibility heath hit with water by other workers falling risks etc Later the author tells us that while the places he reported about were bad it was worse in Texas 9 Contaminated food you might refrain from eating when you read this chapter the ecoli salmonella listeria The meatpacking systems lax food safety pratices does not help What bad can be introduced in the meat besides those mentioned many but especially SHIT Children being vulnerable also through school food which gets cheap meats Feedlot issues worn out dairy cattle all the shit around what they eat other animals incl cats and dogs The industry goes for denial inspection avoiding recall avoidinghiding The meat also can end up in the home freezers 10 Fast food globally rise of obesity less use of traditional food agricultural production imports advertisement for kids spying on protesters Global conuest especially post Cold War causing protests Epilogue 1 Different ways of raising beef Conway s Red Top closed in 2012 and In N Out still going strong what good influence can come from McDonald s power what even the ordinary consumer can do Epilogue 2 added after first prints on Mad Cow from feeding other animals to cows same sort of feeding happens in other places poultry hogs pets zoo animals Reaction to the problem not addressed well at first This shows that contaminated food appears in other countries too although US has avoided serious Mad Cow stuff who know what will happen Also addresses reaction to the first prints of the book hide spoiler

Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal Free download É 102 McDonald en Los Ángeles en cuya cocina implantaron el sistema de trabajo en cadena reduciendo el menú al mínimo y prescindiendo de todo lo ue precisaba ser comido con cubiertos de metal hasta su presencia global en todos los rincones del mundo Y su estremecedor descubrimi. Fast Food Nation is a fascinating and very readable book In some ways it reminds me of Upton Sinclair s The Jungle It s not only a critiue of fast food the chemicals we are ingesting and the health problems we are facing it is also critical of a system that allows exploitation of young old and immigrant workers and of the suburban sprawl that resulted from the eradication of efficient and environmentally friendly public transportation by the auto industry The author focuses his criticism on the states of California and Colorado when in reality the same strip malls with the same chain stores and miles of fast food clusters and suburban sprawl exist all over the US I have always been particular about what I eat and rarely visit fast food restaurants so this book has not changed my eating habits drastically It has however made me a wiser consumer
