The FDA Admits That Nearly 70% of U.S. Chickens Contains Cancer-Causing Arsenic
The old saying, “You are what you eat,” poses troubling implications for public health in light of a new study on chicken meat, which found that most of it contains dangerously high levels of toxic arsenic. These pharmaceutical drugs are added to chicken feed in order to bulk them up quickly and improve the color of their meat. Until this new study, both the poultry industry and the FDA denied that arsenic fed to chickens ended up in their meat. The fairy-tale excuse story we’ve all been fed for sixty years is that “the arsenic is excreted in the chicken feces.” But now the evidence is so undeniable that the manufacturer of the chicken feed product known as Roxarsone has decided to pull the product off the shelves.
Eat Clean Sources of Meat
When shopping for meat, look for these signs:
1. If the chicken meat is bright pink in color, avoid it.
2. Make sure that the fat content on the chicken is white to deep yellow, not gray or pasty.
3. Check the date on the package.
4. Aim for “Certified Organic” meat products.
