I read this book in one of my freshman composition classes at GSU. At first glance, I thought the book would be a boring because of how much I knew about American habits. I am not much of a fast food eater, but after I read this book I quit eating it altogether for about a year. I felt better mentally and physically when I made the decision. Even though I never really ate them before, I especially avoided fast food hamburgers. The research evident in this book surprised me. I occasionally eat fast food now because of long work hours with graduate school and convenience, but I am careful when I select the restaurant. I always look for the inspection reports and to see if the people preparing my food are wearing gloves. It's sad that our society (myself included) is so overworked and concerned with time that we risk major health problems by eating this kind of food without any thought about the potential consequences. Someone needs to write a book about that.
