Fast Food Nation: Epilogue

Audrey, Laura, Caitlin

author s intent
Author’s intent
  • Author shows that paying a little more for better quality should be worth it.
    • Ex: (p258) Conway’s Red Top Restaurant in Nevada is a family business that has good quality food but it is slightly more expensive. They have way more business than Wendy’s across the street.
    • Restaurants are still successful without acting like a fast food industry
    • (p259) In-N-Out Burger refuses to franchise it, use verses from the Bible, part-time pay is $8 an hour, and full-time workers get medical, dental, vision, and life insurance
author s intent1
Author’s Intent
  • Quality should be in high consideration so that children will not be obese
    • Author believes Congress should ban all ads aimed at kids that promote foods high in fat and sugar
    • Could discourage eating habits that are life-threatening
assertions and findings
Assertions and Findings
  • Industrialized system of cattle production can’t be sustained
    • Organic meat tastes better than what we usually eat
    • Organic meat come from grass fed cows and the meat contains no E. coli
assertions and findings1
Assertions and Findings
  • Fast food is a culmination of larger social and economic trends
    • “the low price of a fast food hamburger does not reflect its real cost-and should. The profits of the fast food chains have been made possible by losses imposed on the rest of society. The annual cost of obesity alone is now twice as large as the fast food industry’s total revenues.”
proved points
Proved Points
  • Places like In-N-Out Burger can serve better quality of food for extra money, but can still bring in more customers than normal fast food restaurants
  • Other countries have tougher food safety laws than U.S.
    • USDA can test cattle that have been slaughtered for diseases, but cannot test live cattle
    • American food processor can expect a visit form an FDA inspector every 10 years
    • IBP workers like days when they ship meat to Europe because slower pace and far less injuries
    • Far more Americans are severely harmed every year y food poisoning than by illegal drug use
proved points1
Proved Points
  • Food in school cafeteria is less quality food than fast food restaurants
  • USDA and FDA allow selling of questionable meat to the federal agency until children are sickened
  • Fast chains offer horrible ingredients and no one should want to eat there
    • People should pay more money
    • The Restaurants and Institutions Choice in Chains ranked In-N-Out Burger first for quality, value, service, atmosphere, and cleanliness
      • Same year McDonalds was ranked as lowest quality food of any major hamburger chain
  • Congress should ban commercials using children to advertise foods with high sugar content
    • Congress already banned commercials for smoking because of health risks
  • Americans need to be cautious of where their food comes from and how it can hurt their bodies
  • Quality of meat should be the priority in order to keep the next generation healthy
  • Parents need to be able to teach their kids healthy eating choices by first taking control and changing their own eating habits
