Do you really know what you're eating when you tuck into that burger?
Britain eats more fast food than any other country in Europe. It looks good, tastes good and its cheap. But the real cost never appears on the menu.
Eric Schlosser's explosive bestseller, by turns funny and terrifying, tells the story of our love affair with fast food. He visits the lab that recreates the smell of strawberries; examines the safety record of abbatoirs; reveals why the fries taste so good and what really lurks between the sesame buns - and shows how fast food is transforming not only our diets but our world.
