FDA Finally Admits Chicken Meat Contains Cancer-Causing Arsenic


According to the Associated Press, FDA finally admitted that chicken meat contains inorganic arsenic.

It has long been kept as a secret, but now the FDA finally admitted that chicken meat sold in the supermarkets is positive to arsenic. Arsenic is a toxic chemical which is known to have cancer-causing properties, and when taken in high doses it can be fatal.

The problem, in fact, is the origin of the arsenic which is added to the chicken meat we consume.

Arsenic is intentionally mixed with the chicken food. More than 70% chickens are fed in arsenic in order to stimulate faster growth on less food, and it also gives healthy color of chicken, turkey and hog meat, according to IATP`s report in 2006, called Playing Chicken.

According to FDA findings, half of the tested chickens had inorganic arsenic in their liver, and this it the most toxic form of this cancerous chemical.

Consequently, Pfizer was asked to stop the production of Roxarsone, a drug which contains toxic arsenic and which is added to chicken feed so that the meat looks fatter and has a nice pink color.

The Wall Street Journal reported:

“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.”

Despite the fact that this product is recalled from the stores throughout the US, the FDA still asserts that chicken meat contains safe amount of arsenic and that it is not dangerous.

Of course, the production industry does not want the world to know the truth about arsenic and its toxic effects on human health. Arsenic, together with mercury and lead, has extremely toxic effect on fetuses and children, according to to the University of South Carolina Department of Environmental Health Services.

Furthermore, experts claim that arsenic has 4 times more poisonous effects than mercury. For instance, Arsenic As+3 is 60 times as toxic as the pentavalent As +5.

According to a study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association, individuals who consume large amounts of rice which contains arsenic, experience change in the cells which leads to cancer development.

When ingested, arsenic causes Bowen disease (squamous cell carcinoma in situ); invasive squamous cell carcinoma; basal cell carcinoma on the skin; and sometimes even cancers of the internal organs, including lungs, kidneys, bladder, and liver, according to the most recent reports.

Unfortunately, FDA still claims that food which contains arsenic is safe to eat, but drinking elderberry juice is dangerous- ironic, isn`t it?

FDA Finally Admits Chicken Meat Contains Cancer-Causing Arsenic


After years of sweeping the issue under the rug and hoping no one would notice, the FDA has now finally admitted that chicken meat sold in the USA contains arsenic, a cancer-causing toxic chemical that’s fatal in high doses. But the real story is where this arsenic comes from: It’s added to the chicken feed on purpose! Even worse, the FDA says its own research shows that the arsenic added to the chicken feed ends up in the chicken meat where it is consumed by humans. So for the last sixty years, American consumers who eat conventional chicken have been swallowing arsenic, a known cancer-causing chemical.

Until this new study, both the poultry industry and the FDA denied that arsenic fed to chickensended 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.” There’s no scientific basis for making such a claim… it’s just what the poultry industry wanted everybody to believe. 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 (http://www.grist.org/food-safety/20…). And what’s the name of this manufacturer that has been putting arsenic in the chicken feed for all these years?

Pfizer, of course — the very same company that makes vaccines containing chemical adjuvants that are injected into children. Technically, the company making the Roxarsone chicken feed is a subsidiary of Pfizer, called Alpharma LLC. Even though Alpharma now has agreed to pull this toxic feed chemical off the shelves in the United States, it says it won’t necessarily remove it from feed products in other countries unless it is forced by regulators to do so. As reported by AP: “Scott Brown of Pfizer Animal Health’s Veterinary Medicine Research and Development division said the company also sells the ingredient in about a dozen other countries. He said Pfizer is reaching out to regulatory authorities in those countries and will decide whether to sell it on an individual basis.” (http://www.usatoday.com/money/indus…) But even as its arsenic-containing product is pulled off the shelves, the FDA continues its campaign of denial, claiming arsenic in chickens is at such a low level that it’s still safe to eat. This is even as the FDA says arsenic is a carcinogen, meaning it increases the risk of cancer. The National Chicken

The National Chicken Councilagrees with the FDA. In a statement issued in response to the news that Roxarsone would be pulled from feed store shelves, it stated, “Chicken is safe to eat” even while admitting arsenic was used in many flocks grown and sold as chicken meat in the United States. What’s astonishing about all this is that the FDA tells consumers it’s safe to eat cancer-causing arsenic but it’s dangerous to drink elderberry juice! The FDA recently conducted an armed raid in an elderberry juice manufacturer, accusing it of the “crime” of selling “unapproved drugs.” (http://www.naturalnews.com/032…) Which drugs would those be? The elderberry juice, explains the FDA. You see, the elderberry juice magically becomes a “drugs” if you tell people how it can help support good health. The FDA has also gone after dozens of other companies for selling natural herbal products or nutritional products that enhance and support health. Plus, it’s waging a war on raw milk which it says is dangerous. So now in America, we have a food and drug regulatory agency that says it’s okay to eat arsenic, but dangerous to drink elderberry juice or raw milk. Eat more poison, in other words, but don’t consume any healing foods. That’s the FDA, killing off Americans one meal at a time while protecting the profits of the very companies that are poisoning us with their deadly ingredients. Oh, by the way, here’s another sweet little disturbing fact you probably didn’t know about hamburgers and conventional beef: Chicken litter containing arsenic is fed to cows in factory beef operations. So the arsenic that’s pooped out by the chickens gets consumed and concentrated in the tissues of cows, which is then ground into hamburger to be consumed by the clueless masses who don’t even know they’re eating second-hand chicken crap.

FDA Finally Admits Chicken Meat Contains Cancer-Causing Arsenic


fda-finally-admits-chicken-meat-contains-cancer-causing-arsenic

For years, the issue of arsenic in chicken has been swept under the rug, hoping and praying no one would notice, the FDA has now admitted that chicken meat sold in The United States contains arsenic, a cancer- causing toxic chemical that is fatal in high doses.

The arsenic is added to the chicken feed, and then the arsenic added to the feed ends up in the meat where it is then consumed by people for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. For the last sixty years, We consumers have been swallowing arsenic, a known carcinogenic!

Until recently the FDA and the poultry industry has denied that the arsenic fed to the chickens ended up in the meat. They have said, “the arsenic is excreted in the chicken feces.” There is not one trace of scientific evidence to support this claim; it is just what you were wanted to believe!

Now, the evidence is so undeniable that the manufacturer of the chicken feed known as Roxarsone has decided to pull the product off of the shelves. The manufacturer that has been putting the arsenic into the feed is the same company that makes the vaccines containing chemical adjuvants that are injected into children, Pfizer.

The toxic feed will be pulled from the shelves in the United States.

“Scott Brown of Pfizer Animal Health’s Veterinary Medicine Research and Development division said the company also sells the ingredient in about a dozen other countries. He said Pfizer is reaching out to regulatory authorities in those countries and will decide whether to sell it on an individual basis.”

What about the FDA? They continue their claim that arsenic in chickens consumed in such low levels is still safe to eat. Even, as they say, that the arsenic is a carcinogen, meaning it increases the risk of cancer.

What is even more disturbing is the fact that the chicken litter containing arsenic is then fed to the dairy cows in factory beef operations. I guess if they don’t get it in one way, it will go in another!

“Arsenic in chicken production poses a risk not only to human health, but to the environment,” Consumer’s Union senior scientist Michael Hansen, Ph.D., says in a news release. “Arsenic can end up in the manure from chicken coops and this is spread on agricultural land as fertilizer. Chicken coop floor waste is also routinely swept up and recycled as feed to cows on large-scale feedlots. We need to get arsenic out of food production altogether.”

The F.D.A. spokesman said the agency “continues to investigate all uses of arsenic-based drugs in food-producing animals and will take the appropriate action to protect public health.”
