He also mentions the high rates of teenagers working for Fast Food restaurants with little wages and that it distracts them from their education. Schlosser starts a new part of the book where he talks about the food. He starts with the French fries and how it is made by flavor industries and that it puts a lot of potato farmers out of work because of the small number of buyers exerting power over a large number of sellers, a market he describes as “oligopsony”. Schlosser then talks about the IBP revolution, how it changed the meatpacking industry and applying the same labor principle as McDonalds; requiring unskilled workers for low wages. the author then calls meatpacking “the most dangerous job” explaining health issues, injuries and sexual harassment for women.
Firstly, the author discusses how In-N-Out is an over hyped product with nothing to show for all the fans the restaurant has. Olmsted states “The food: Despite its very passionate loyal following, the actual burgers at In-N-Out are not especially good. The very basic, thin fast-food patties housed in generic buns are nearly identical to those at McDonald 's or Burger King.” (Olmsted 1). I don’t agree with the author of the article when he states this.
“Fast food restaurants have us hooked on to their tasty food. You See a lot of people buying fast food because how good it tastes. Well let me tell you it is not good for your health. Why do fast food places lower their prices because they know people will buy it if it doesn’t cost that much and most people buy it cause that`s how much they can afford”. Fast food places is a way to not cook every week I feel bad for people when I go to McDonald’s and ask them, do you know what you’re eating in they say
According to him, “People who smoke crack know the potential dangers; most people who eat hamburgers don’t”(Schlosser 264). He juxtaposes the example of a drug user and their understanding of the risks associated with their consumption to a fast food consumer . By Schlosser having sympathy towards the audience, he seems to be credible to society that it is not their fault of getting ill through the fast food they consume as well as the diverse problems that the fast food industry has
Clinical studies were created to prevent Spurlock’s biased style of procedures. In the third case, Spurlock has too broad of an argument, focused on too many subjects, and ultimately did not demonstrate (per the lawsuit) how McDonald’s intended for its customers to eat a McDiet three times a day, every day, and that McDonald’s was aware that the specified regimen was dangerous. Indeed, fast food is harmful to our health when consumed in excess; however, Spurlock’s ceaseless bingeing overstates the good point. Today, we are inundated with information related to life’s dangers, but we should not follow these messages
Those who are not concerned say that Chipotle is generally fresh and has better quality food than many other fast food restaurants. They also believe that the chances of getting food poisoning at a restaurant are slim . Nevertheless, Chipotle was not able to avoid criticism.

Nancy Cohen states that common food safety is overlooked in cooking shows. A lot of the issues she raises mainly involve hygienic practices not performed by the chefs in the shows. She states, “Bare-hand contact contributes to 35% of foodborne outbreaks from restaurants; thus, avoiding bare-hand contact, washing hands, and using gloves are critical steps in preventing foodborne illness” (Cohen). Washing hands is a huge concern to keep bacteria from infecting the food; however, in the show none of the chefs wash their hands before making the food. In the show, the chefs marinated the steaks with their bare-hands.
One of the problematic vagueness was when the author was trying to describe that McDonald's foods are dangerous or unhealthy. For example, the author had an image with the text "Eat Fast, Die Young" which is vague since the readers do not know what causes death. In fact, the image brings several questions: What food makes people die young? Was it the salad? The hamburger?

The middle of the chapter begins to go more in depth about the deadly germs living within the meat that most people consume on a daily basis. According to the book, foodborne illnesses are now more easily transmitted due to, feedlots, sanitation issues in slaughterhouses, and meat grinders. Although there is mass distribution of meat that may possibly be infected with dangerous bacteria, the government has no political influence on whether or not the meat will be recalled or not.

Fast food restaurants are always to blame though or the food companies. The parents keep their children away from that. When the kid asks for it they could simply say no.

Schlosser mentions why people do not care much for healthy options, “Consumers savor the flavor while operators embrace [the] profit margin”(241). That is pretty much saying that the even if they do have a healthier option, it does not necessary mean that it is healthy at all. Another article from natural news mentions what obesity because of processed foods does to the body. The article says that although many people do not eat at any fast food restaurant they can still find processed foods in grocery markets, that
So, a conclusion could be drawn that consumers will and do choose the unhealthy option a majority of the time. However, it does not address the disconnect, or why people are still consuming foods that are unhealthy for them even when given other options. One reason prominently stands out above the rest and that is the lack of education on the real effects the American diet, a highly addictive diet comprised of processed foods, high in sugar and fat, and void of fresh produce and other
