Its a scathing critque of the fast-food industry.

I've butchered pretty much every type of animal and have been to plants like the one shown in this movie, but watching this really hit home.

After I watched this, I stopped eating meat that I don't know where it came from or how it is processed. There is a huge, menacing industry behind all the nasty shit we put in our mouths everyday. While it treats both humans and animals like shit, it also drives out independent businesses. It then uses this money to influence politicians to keep its industry legal.

If you have a chance to see this movie, please do. You won't be able to eat fast food in good conscience ever again.




Its a book, too.

    Here are a few things to be aware of in this world of Processed Food's that we all live in.

    #1 Aspartame: This little devil is a potentially deadly poison that the U.S. Government Assures us that it is indeed safe, but the Reality is that they are Lying and that they only care about making money.

    High Fructose Corn Syrup: This little byproduct of boiled corn is one of the main contributing factors in the growing U.S. Obesity Epidemic.

    Phosphoric Acid: This Additive that is most commonly found in Coca-Cola and Pepsi can slowly overtime wear away a person's bone density.

    So the Lesson here is so plain and simple: Always Read The Label Before You Buy.

    You Have Been Warned!

      I read the book a couple of years ago.

      I could not stomach the movie. Especially the scene where the cows throats were slit. It truly made me sad.

        Exactly! I read about this stuff too and now I always check the labels on everything. The only problem is that they put this crap in practically everything. :x
        Recipe for nostalgia: Mix 80's and 90's culture. Stir in some good memories. Add a dash of reflection. Mixture should now taste bittersweet. Shake well and enjoy!

          I read the book when it came out around 2002, but haven't seen the movie as I heard Eric Schlosser said that the movie didn't quite follow the book. What REALLY turned me around was "SuperSize Me" though.

            Fast Food Nation (the movie) is more about how politics and corporations affect citizens in very personal and very real ways.

              I read the book (and this is coming from a guy who hates to read), but I haven't seen the movie yet. The book is pretty good.
