I watched a new show last night on the channel Planet Green:  Blood, Sweat and Takeaways. In the show, six young fast food junkies embark on a grueling month-long journey into a world they know nothing about, to discover the tough truth behind their fast food fixes. They’ll also live and toil alongside the poorly paid workers, carrying out the most grim, physical tasks, living in appalling conditions and trying to survive on the wages. In taking on this challenge, the participants will also witness the effects these operations have on the local environment and culture. A big wake up call that I think everyone needs.
