FDA Finally Admits: Chicken Meat Contains Cancer-Causing Arsenic!
Arsenic is a toxic chemical which, when taken in high amounts, can have fatal consequences because it possesses cancer-causing properties. Moreover, FDA admitted that chicken meat sold at supermarkets is filled with arsenic. Hence, the real issue is the arsenic’s origin.
An IATP report from 2006, called Playing Chicken, showed that more than 70% of chicken are fed with arsenic which is intentionally mixed with chicken food. This is done in order to save on food and to give healthy color to the chicken, hog, and turkey meat.
Moreover, non-organic arsenic, found in the livers of chicken, was the most toxic form of arsenic cancerous chemical. Another harmful drug which contains toxic arsenic is roxarone. It’s usually added to chicken feed so that the meat appears fatter and more pinkish.
An excerpt from The Wall Street Journal:
“The agency said it recently conducted a study of 100 broiler chickens that detected inorganic arsenic at higher levels in the livers of chickens treated with 3-Nitro compared with untreated chickens … Pfizer said sale of 3-Nitro would be stopped by early July in order to allow animal producers to transition to other treatments.”
However, the FDA claims that chicken meat contains safe amounts of arsenic which aren’t dangerous, despite the fact that the product was recalled from US stores. The University Of South Carolina Department Of Environmental Health Services stated that arsenic is highly toxic for fetuses and children, along with mercury and lead.
A lot of experts explain that arsenic is 4 times more poisonous than mercury. Hence, people who consume a lot of rice which contains arsenic will experience changes in the cells, which causes the development of cancer, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
To make matters worse, as newest reports indicate, when ingested, arsenic can cause Bowen disease, basal cell carcinoma, invasive squamous cell carcinoma, and even liver, bladder, and kidney cancer.
