I personally like fast food because I think it tastes delicious and it is always prepared fast. I don 't like food that I have to use utensils to eat it but, after reading this book, I learned that fast food products are unhealthy for you and the consequences are horrible if you take in too much fast food. I would rather eat something healthier than processed food. I also know that the facts that are on this book are accurate because I have noticed that the information that the book gives is stable from beginning to end. Also, I have watched a movie called "Food Inc." which shows what happens inside a slaughter house. When the book talked about how a chicken is raised and how it is slaughter was similar to what "Food Inc." showed in the movie. The description of the author matched the movie clips that "Food Inc." showed. The documentary won an Emmy-Award which means that the documentary is trustworthy. The novel has also informed people with how the fast food industry works. Explaining to the people who they target, who invented it, what they put in their products, how their products are made, when the fast food industry started, and what are the horrible effects of too much fast food. And though the book only spoke about the negative things that the fast food industry causes, I would have recommended that the author show a balance side of negative and positive things that we gain from fast food
