Fast Food Nation : What the All-American Meal is Doing to the World
Eric Schlosser has visited the state-of-the-art labs where scientists recreate the flavours and smells of everything from cooked chicken to fresh strawberries in the test tube and he has spoken to workers at meatpacking plants with some of the worst safety records in the world. He explores the links between Hollywood and the fast food trade, and the tactics used to target ever younger consumers. In a meticulously researched and powerfully argued account, "Fast Food Nation" reveals the full price of our appetite for instant gratification.
