Review quote

"Vivid . . . compelling.' --Booklist, starred review Booklist, ALA, Starred Review"A stinging, often startling expose on this country's pervasive, lucrative fast-food industry, for young people." --Publishers Weekly Publishers Weekly"Fascinating -- and alarming. . . . This book is full of inspiring examples of how one person can make a difference." --LA Times The Los Angeles Times"Chew on This is an expose of the fast-food industry and a nauseating disclosure of the fats, sweeteners, laboratory-formulated textures, scents and colors that sizzle under the Golden Arches. Read this, and you have had your last Happy Meal." --The New York Times Book Review"Chew On This should be circulated widely among America's youth. And should be commended for the fact that even in the face of such overwhelmingly bad news, it doesn't completely lose its sense of humor." --The San Francisco Chronicle"With its discussion of alternatives . . . Chew on This puts a nice, empowering spin on the old Burger King jingle, "Have it your way." Along with the all-McDonald's diet movie, "Supersize Me," this should be required fare before the next lunch bell rings." --The Washington Post"Chew On This is an eye-opening book with a worthy message." --Bookpage Bookpage"Useful for health classes and nutrition units, it will also be an eye-opener for general readers who regularly indulge at the Golden Arches. . . .But the emphasis here is on the truth about soda pop and obestity, fries and lies." --School Library Journal"Eye-opening and often stomach-churning...this book is a fascinating look at a very controversial subject." --VOYA (Voice of Youth Advocates)
