On Eric Schlosser’s Fast Food Nation and Film

Film Gives New Meaning to “Watch What You Eat” 

by Trevor Owens Hornet:

Upton Sinclair’s “The Jungle” is now 100 years old. Published in 1906, the novel upset so many in Washington, that President Roosevelt helped enact the Food and Drugs Act that year.

“Fast Food Nation” stands a chance of creating a similar fervor, but America is a lot bigger than it was in 1906, and corporations much more powerful; the battle is definitely uphill.
