Fast Food Nation

I don’t read a lot of non-fiction, but I decided to finally read this book having had it sit on the shelf for a few years. I’m glad I read it, but as someone who regularly eats in the US I am not sure if I should be glad or freaked out. The book is an interesting study in how industrialization without proper quality controls can have some pretty terrible side effects. I’m glad to live in a jurisdiction where we actively test for food quality and safety.

The book is a good read, and I’d recommend it to people without weak stomaches.
