Fast Food Nation

This picture shows our subconcious willingness to pick up cheap, fast and greasy food and and eat it as if second nature us

FAST FOOD NATION

By Eric Schlosser

I chose this video because it tells some interesting and possibly eyeopening facts about America's beloved fast food industry

This is a soundtrack from the actual Fast Food Nation documentary. It sounds almost like music you would hear at a Tco Bell or a Del Taco. It's the friendly, fun music that helps lure consumers in to the restaurant for a quick, cheap meal

"McWeight, You're gainin' it"

I chose this picture because it depicts one of the main ideas of the book. which is fast food is the silent killer of hundreds of thousands of people annualy

"Burgers and lies, Would you like to supersize?"

This picture shows how easy fast food is to be obtained in our country and how much cariety of a bad thing we have

I chose this specific map of the U.S. to depict the origin of the nation's fast food addiction.

This video accuratly shows all the calories/ carbs/ sugar etc. we take into our bodies on a regular basis with just basic fast meals

This cartoon display's our nation's and the world's two most selling ploys: Sex and fast food, both separate and together for the sole purpose of money

This picture shows how fast food media targets children as a ploy to bring in their parent's money

“Congress should ban advertising that preys upon children, it should stop subsidizing dead-end jobs, it should pass tougher food safety laws, it should protect American workers from serious harm, it should fight against dangerous concentrations of economic power.”

“The life's work of Walt Disney and Ray Kroc had come full-circle, uniting in perfect synergy. McDonald's began to sell its hamburgers and french fries at Disney's theme parks. The ethos of McDonaldland and of Disneyland, never far apart, have finally become one. Now you can buy a Happy Meal at the Happiest Place on Earth.”

This comic shows how America is blind to it's most fatal industry and how easily the government can distract the general public.

“In 1970, Americans spent about $6 billion on fast food; in 2000, they spent more than $110 billion. Americans now spend more money on fast food than on higher education, personal computers, computer software, or new cars. They spend more on fast food than on movies, books, magazines, newspapers, videos, and recorded music—combined.”

Fast Food Nation gives us the dark side to our most beloved and deadly industry. The critically aclaimed book was made into a 2006 documentary , giving us every dark detail about the industry that built America up from the ground.
