Eric Schlosser

Despite its low price, fast food comes with hidden costs: the mistreatment of workers, a growing obesity epidemic, and declining meat quality. Fast-food industries compromise people's health, education, and job safety by sacrificing quality to maximize profits. Avoid processed foods. Most processed foods include flavorings with origins that are difficult to trace - and you might not want to trace them. Therefore, if you want to know what you're consuming, avoiding processed food is best. Be wary of fast-food advertisements. Keep in mind how fast-food products are made. If you're informed about their production, you might reconsider consuming them when you see their ads.
