As God as my witness I shall never eat another hamburger as long as I shall live That s what I said after reading this book Then the phone rang It was my friend who wanted to go grab a uick bite at Wendy s I had a cheeseburger I never looked back babyIt s not that this book paints the fast food industry in a wicked horrible light It doesn t become a witch hunt this isn t Hey you know Elie Wiesel is right Nazi s are real sons of bitches which is what I expect most people think after reading Night I ve never read it myself I just expect people think that after reading said book though to be honest most people probably think that already unless you re Mahmoud Ahmadinejad but it s not all puppys and flowers either Really it s rich old white men looking out for themselves and who else are they going to look out forIt s been a few years since I ve read the book so I could be wrong about this but I m going to say this book isn t even as harsh on the fast food industry as Supersize Me A film which I refuse to see because Duh Eat nothing but fast food for a month and you re going to get sick Who was shocked by this movie No but you don t get it it s how sick he was and how fast That s usually the opposing argument I get I still say Duh I m going to make a movie where I shoot up heroin three times a day for a month or smoke seven packs of cigarettes a day for a month or hit myself in the head with a hammer five times a day for a month and see what happens I really want people to say Man I knew that hitting yourself in the head with a hammer was dangerous but who knew how dangerous it could be I mean he was brain damaged by the second day I m never hitting myself in the head with a hammer again But I digress this isn t about film this is about booksIt s a pretty good book for the history lesson on how fast food got started and how the industry has done a good job screwing everyone from farmers to fat kids to illegal migrant workers to small business owners to who knows who else And just when you start to think Man screw fast food the author himself says he still eats fast food then you think I sure do like them McDonalds fries Then you hear about the newest Halo 3 tie in at Burger King where not only will your fries be wrapped in a Halo 3 themed package but your soda will come in a Halo 3 cup So what so what if the meat might be tainted with the fingers of an illegal or so what if the farmer who sold the slaughtered cow can barely aford new boots dammit I want it my way and I want it my way now Plus there is this one part of the book that talks about how some fast food companies will donate money to schools in exchange for advertising space or a spot in the cafeteria and let s be honest what would you rather have fat smart kids or fat dumb kids Smart thin kids isn t an option this is public school we re talking about hereIt s a light romp through the dark underbelly of the fast food world It ll learn you but good and it certainly gave me pause right before I went out and got a 4 supersized with a Dr Pepper cause Dr Pepper rulz

Oh America When will you wise upIn 1998 the seed of Fast Food Nation appeared in Rolling Stone Magazine Schlosser s expose has since been expanded to a book and then a movie and still international love affair with fast food continues The latest edition also contains an afterword addressing mad cow disease or bovine spongiform encephalopathy In it Schlosser accomplishes the almost Herculean task of weaving together the birth of the fast food industry the growing connection with car and highway culture the growth of kid targeted marketing McDonalds and Disney were early leaders the developing connection between the industrialization of our food and family farmers particularly chicken potato and beef the anti union connection and the development of the engineered food product I liked it than I thought it would expecting a didactic cardboard entree I was provided with a seven course mealHe shows true journalistic roots by beginning sections with a human interest angle from the beginning with Carl Karcher Carl s Jr and Richard McDonald to the potato kingpin JR Simplot to a Colorado rancher fighting to protect his ranch against enroaching suburbs to a union representative fighting for safer conditions in slaughterhouses If there was any weakness in the book it would be the challenge in bridging the stories from the individual to the larger philosophical and systemic issue I understand the human face helps a reader create meaning but for me it occasionally felt contrived particularly in the international settingsFor me there was an especially powerful moment of revelation when Schlosser points out the drawback of dealing with corporations not local ownersThe nation s meatpacking firms on the other hand have proven themselves to be far less committed to remaining in a particular community They have successfully pitted one economically depressed region against another using the threat of plant closures and the promise of future investment to obtain lucrative government subsidies No longer locally owned they feel no allegiance to any one place Doesn t that just about sums up the state of industry in the US The only times a corporation can t cut and run is when it depends on a highly skilled workforce It s one reason the create jobs political platforms make me a little crazyI found myself wishing this was reuired reading It s not that I m opposed to fast food I m opposed to a lack of informed choice Full disclosure should include understanding some important points from Fast Food Nation1 Flavor experts are utilized to create the optimal taste combination that hits our salty fat sweet spot Thus chicken pieces contain an average of 30 different ingredients of which salt has been added in at least three different steps and an artificial strawberry shake contains over 28 ingredients 2 the industry has been key in fighting against food regulation and testing even when known outbreaks of Ecoli in school lunches have killed children 3 the burger is sourced from cattle feedlots where 75% of the pre cooked meat contained microbes normally found in fecal material4 companies specifically target children so that they can manipulate their parents into taking them against parents better judgement5 potatoes and chicken come from marginalized farmers who are basically one step up from indentured workers buying raw ingredients from the company and selling the grown product back to them and insulating the company against risks such as weather crop failure or disease6 companies target teens and non English speakers as workers because they are less liable to demand rights or living wages and still the company gets a tax break for training 7 absolutely positively there is no way to eat healthily at McDonald s with the exception of a side salad no dressing fruit and yogurt parfait 52 oz grilled premium chicken classic sandwich apple slices and egg whites You may be healthy in spite of the food but not because of the foodAgain not saying I condone the choice I have my once a year Shamrock shake and an intermittent fry craving proving just how great childhood marketing is and the lure of salty sweet carb goodness Less than 5 stars is because for me the journalistic style over reached especially on the section on the German McDonald s both in Eastern Germany and the one near Dachau as well as Gorbechev speaking at a Las Vegas convention of franchise owners But overall it was an excellent book entertaining and insightful Reading it gave voice to my intuitive feeling that there is something rotten in the system Cross posted at
