 Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal By Eric Schlosser review by Andrew Roe / San Francisco Chronicle 28jan01
Eric Schlosser's "Fast Food Nation" is a good old-fashioned muckraking expose in the tradition of "The American Way of Death" that's as disturbing as it is irresistible, and that ultimately calls for the boycott of one of the most powerful and lucrative industries in the United States.

A lean burger from a fast food restaurant is nearly non-existent.  Since these burgers are generally fried, they tend to retain nearly all their fat.  Fast food hamburgers are also full of sodium and cholesterol.
Everyone needs sodium, cholesterol, fat, and calories to live.  However, consuming any of these in excess can be harmful.  Too much fat and salt contributes to high blood pressure and heart disease.  Not all fast food is harmful, but it is important to be informed so you can choose a healthy meal.
You can choose to reduce the risks and calories in fast food if you are informed.

Fast food is now served not only at restaurants and drive-thrus but also at stadiums, airports, college campuses and elementary schools, on cruise ships, trains and airplanes, at Kmarts, Wal-Marts, gas stations and even hospital cafeterias.
