Fast food has become a favorite media whipping boy, but hospital dietitian Lisa Tillinger Johansen makes the bold case that the industry is actually a positive force in society.  Relying on her nutritional expertise (and knowledge as a former fast food insider), Johansen shows how such restaurants have distinguished themselves with products that meet high standards of quality and safety.  And with humor, illuminating anecdotes and fascinating research, Johansen shows the reader just how easily fast food can be incorporated into a healthy lifestyle.  Lively and informative, FAST FOOD VINDICATION destroys the media myths and paints the true picture of an industry that touches the lives of millions.
