    It led directly to the creation of the FDA. But it wasn't Upton Sinclair's main focus to bring that to light; a lot of the stories in that book he just made up out of thin air, with little or no basis in fact. His main intent was to create a piece of socialist propaganda, as socialism was a popular movement in the day when he wrote it.

    Even though it's still one of my favorite books of all time.

    Mostly the aftermath of The Jungle was improvement in sanitary conditions and in the working conditions for the employees.

    After math of "The Jungle" is that muckrackers finally had their voices heard and laws were passed to promote the regulation of food production and ensure the safety of American consumers.

    Upton Sinclair said "I aimed for Americans' hearts, but I hit them in the stomach"

    He wanted more workers rights, but he ended up just increasing food regulations.
