Revue de presse

"Vivid . . . compelling.' —Booklist, starred review Booklist, ALA, Starred Review

"A stinging, often startling expose on this country's pervasive, lucrative fast-food industry, for young people." —Publishers Weekly Publishers Weekly

"Fascinating -- and alarming. . . . This book is full of inspiring examples of how one person can make a difference." —LA Times The Los Angeles Times

"Chew on This is an expose of the fast-food industry and a nauseating disclosure of the fats, sweeteners, laboratory-formulated textures, scents and colors that sizzle under the Golden Arches. Read this, and you have had your last Happy Meal." —The New York Times Book Review

"Chew On This should be circulated widely among America's youth. And should be commended for the fact that even in the face of such overwhelmingly bad news, it doesn't completely lose its sense of humor." —The San Francisco Chronicle

"With its discussion of alternatives . . . Chew on This puts a nice, empowering spin on the old Burger King jingle, "Have it your way." Along with the all-McDonald's diet movie, "Supersize Me," this should be required fare before the next lunch bell rings." —The Washington Post

"Chew On This is an eye-opening book with a worthy message." —Bookpage Bookpage

"Useful for health classes and nutrition units, it will also be an eye-opener for general readers who regularly indulge at the Golden Arches. . . .But the emphasis here is on the truth about soda pop and obestity, fries and lies." —School Library Journal

"Eye-opening and often stomach-churning...this book is a fascinating look at a very controversial subject." —VOYA (Voice of Youth Advocates)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Kids love fast food. And the fast food industry definitely loves kids. It couldn’t survive without them. Did you know that the biggest toy company in the world is McDonald’s? It’s true. In fact, one out of every three toys given to a child in the United States each year is from a fast food restaurant.

Not only has fast food reached into the toy industry, it’s moving into our schools. One out of every five public schools in the United States now serves brand name fast food. But do kids know what they’re eating? Where do fast food hamburgers come from? And what makes those fries taste so good?

When Eric Schlosser’s best-selling book, Fast Food Nation, was published for adults in 2001, many called for his groundbreaking insight to be shared with young people. Now Schlosser, along with co-writer Charles Wilson, has investigated the subject further, uncovering new facts children need to know.

In Chew On This, they share with kids the fascinating and sometimes frightening truth about what lurks between those sesame seed buns, what a chicken ‘nugget’ really is, and how the fast food industry has been feeding off children for generations.

Featuring cover art by M. Wartella.

A lot to chew on :-() 6 mai 2006
Par Little Miss Cutey - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I really like this book. I bought it (even though it's geared more to kids) because I am a fan of Fast Food Nation (can't wait till the movie comes out) and wanted to hear what he had to say this time around.
He's targeted 9-15 year olds mainly because American kids are so unhealthy and out of shape - he wanted to not tell them what not to eat, but in fact enlighten them about what they are actually eating. Because the stats are so high for being obese at age 35 if you were obese at 13, he wants to try to stop kids getting obese by age 13 in the first place.
He takes shots at the soda industry as well as fast food restaurants. There is a chapter dedicated to the sodas making kids fat/unhealthy.
1 out of 3 toys in America come from fast food restaurants he states, showing the 'marketing skills' of these chains to lure kids to want to eat there.
Chew On This is really designed to make people (especially the kids) aware of what they are buying and eating and awareness is key to the choices you make.
I loved this book. It's eye opening and interesting and does in fact make you chew on his thoughts. I think he's done a great job here. I hope this message sinks in to kids heads and make them reconsider what they would rather eat.

Some of the same info as in Fast Food Nation but still interesting with new information 16 mai 2006
Par Elizabeth DeRoos - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Personally I think the authors book Fast Food Nation is better, even for kids ages ten and up, since kids can handle the contents which hold your attention.

The chapter on soda pop interesting since it spoke of Glennallen Alaska and other areas in Alaska where most kids have lost teeth or have rotting teeth because of beverage companies pushing Pepsi, Coke etc.

Also interesting was page 121 and the chapter titled The Bugs In Your Candy which is about color additives in processed foods like cochineal extract also known as carmine or carminic acid which is made from dead bodies of small bugs harvested mainly in Peru and the Canary Islands. The author notes these 'little bugs are collected, dried and ground into coloring additive which makes processed foods look pink, red or purple. Dannon yogurt gets its color from camine, as do many candies, frozen fruit bars, fruit fillings, and Ocean Spray pink grapefruit juice drink'.

This is especially troubling to those of us who strive to not eat animals of any kind. Being vegetarian or vegan to me means NO animal meat, bodies etc, and I detest companies who sneak animal bodies into food one should assume are safe.

So just remember this book is geared to young people, while I think his other book Fast Food Nation is geared to all ages.

Your kids need to know this stuff 25 mai 2006
Par bensmomma - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I just saw Eric Schlosser speak tonight to a crowded room full of interested kids, so you can put away any notions you might get that kids aren't interested in learning more about what they eat or will be put off by "gross" pictures (there are one, maybe two of these in the whole book).

Let me say a little though about what Schlosser does NOT do in this book: he does not tell kids what to eat or not eat. He does not tell them they must stay away from fast-food restaurants at all times (he's not a vegetarian, actually, and he even mentions some responsible ones that he likes, like In-n-Out Burger). Instead, he tried to inform kids about what's in fast food and how fast-food restaurants are run, and encourages kids to make their OWN well-informed decisions.

Schlosser is an investigative journalist, and the book is intended as an expose of the fast-food industry, there's no question about it. A lot of what he says will make parents and kids feel pretty bad about their eating behavior - the terrible pollution problems caused by factory farms, the health problems caused by obesity, terrible dental problems caused by soda pop, etc. So, his opinion on the subject is clear but well-supported.

But before you decide whether you're interested in this book, I would like to suggest to readers of this book's reviews to do some of their own fact-checking. For example, by clicking on a reviewer's name on this page you can see how many other reviews he/she has written. If that person has never written about anything else, ask yourself WHY. Ask yourself who they work for. And then, as Mr. Schlosser would himself suggest, *draw your own conclusions.*

Fast Food Nation For Youngsters - An Important Book 17 avril 2006
Par Rebecca - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This is an extremely well written and important book. It's not intended as a "sequel" to Fast Food Nation (another reviewer complained that the book didn't add much as a sequel). This is a REWRITE of Fast Food Nation for a YOUNG AUDIENCE -- something this country has needed desperately for a long, long time. Young people are now more obese than ever -- as a result, they're struggling with more health problems than any previous generation and setting themselves up for a lifetime battling diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer ... This book should be required reading for every child, teen and parent.

Um, Engine Joe? You need some WD-40. 10 mai 2006
Par Invisigoth - Publié sur
Format: Relié
"Engine Joe Eagleson" notes that Dr. Elizabeth Whelan, the President of the American Council on Science and Health, has panned this book in an op-ed piece.

Google her name and look up "American Council on Science and Health" on Wikipedia. She is nothing more than a hired gun for corporate interests. Of course she's going to pan the book! Wikipedia notes that the ACSH receives "75 percent of [its] funding from the chemical and pharmaceutical industry."

Engine Joe: the fast-food industry is aiming its marketing arm directly at impressionable children. You and I know that moderation is key, but what about the five year old who watches 3 hours of fast-food advertising each week?

Secondly, does McDonald's really have commericals that encourage children to order a salad? What six-year old goes to Wendy's and orders the chili?.

To me, Mr Schlosser's book fills a missing gap of information for children. They receive advertising constantly and it's refreshing to give them a new viewpoint. As Mr Schlosser noted in a recent interview, the most troubling aspect of fast food for kids is "the eating habits it creates. Research shows that if children are obese by the age of 13, the odds are overwhelming that they will be as adults."
