So, I’m a little behind the times, but I just now got around to reading the book “Fast Food Nation.” As a history buff and a nutrition nerd, the book is both fascinating and horrifying. While the men who founded the major fast food chains were incredible entrepreneurs and rule-breakers, they created an industry that is the opposite of freedom, individuality, and vibrancy. The book details the history of most of the major chains we know, as well as the relationships of those businesses with government, the entertainment industry, and many other facets of our life that we don’t even realize. The fast food industry is uniquely American and omnipresent, even if you personally don’t eat fast food. And, ironically, the fast food industry itself may be the key to changing the horrible practices in regards to both food and humans that it has left in its wake. I highly recommend reading this book, but not at the dinner table.
