FDA Finally Admits Chicken Meat Contains Cancer – Causing Arsenic

Healthy Life Idea

After years of rumors FDA finally admitted that the chicken meats around USA contain arsenic. Arsenic is a cancer causing chemical which if consumed in bigger doses could cost a life.  What most of you might wonder is from where this chemical comes.  The thing is that it is included in the chicken food on purpose. Back in 2006 the IATP`s reportPlaying Chicken: Avoid Arsenic in your meat showed that about 70% of the chicken in U.S are feed with arsenic. They are given this chemical in order to gain weight faster and the meat to get healthy color.  

According to the Food and Drug administration about half of the chickens tested have absorbed inorganic arsenic in their liver. Out of this reason they demanded that Pfizer stops producing Roxarsone the arsenic-containing drug added to the chicken food to make them fat and to make the meat pink.

In the Wall Street Journal was stated: “The agency said its recently conducted study of 100 boiler 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.”

Although later the FDA said that the presence of the arsenic in the meat is so low that it can`t do any harm to you the arsenic is proved to increase the risk of cancer.

The arsenic is actually extremely toxic and can do much harm to the human health.  The University of South Carolina, Department of Environmental Health Sciences claims that arsenic together with mercury and lead cause neurological effects on the fetuses and small children. According to some researches arsenic is even 4 times more poisonous than mercury. The trivalent Arsenic As+ 3 is considered 60 times more toxic than the pentavalent As+ 5.

Another study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association came to realization that individuals that consumed big amounts of arsenic-tinged rice without being exposed on this chemical in some other way had significant cellular changes related to development of cancer.

Many other studies confirmed that this chemical can cause invasive squamous cell carcinoma, carcinoma of the skin, Bown disease and internal cancer of the lungs, the bladder, the liver and the kidneys.

The worst thing about all this is that FDA conceals this information from the public and tells the people that it is safe to consume this food.

  1. I feel better now with my smoking now that KFC will kill you too.
    Stay away from the nicotine McNuggets or you’ll be sorry.


      1. Thank you Koyote.
        With all due respect I take being called a fearmonger with great pride.
        In my past life they called me a whore monger.
        Things are finally looking up for me.

  2. Enough corruption exist in this federal government at top positions to make one wonder why taxpayers continue to finance..it at.all?

  3. Yep. Been telling my friends for years.

    We had poultry houses many years ago, and will vouch, a truck had spilt some feed while filling the bin, field man told us not to let our cows get to it as it would potentially kill them because of the arsenic.

    The proper course was to run withdrawal feed, (Non Medicated and “Non” arsenic) for the last two to three weeks. At that time a long batch was only 8 weeks. Most were ran to the processing plant from 4-6 weeks meaning they were lucky to get 1 week of it.

    When you buy a 4lb bird it was only about a 4 week run. No chicken grows that fast.

    Besides working at the processing plant, That is the reason I won’t eat it.

    One time when I did buy some, septicemia, with a thick yellow layer,,,,,,,,,,, yummm,

  4. Thanks for posting this! Not only will I no longer eat KFC/Churches/whatever fried chicken, I suppose (since Pilgrim’s and especially Tyson) I am sure puts arsenic into their crock pot sized whole chickens, I will make sure we don’t buy any of those anymore, either!

    Thank God we live near several free-range-organic-beef ranches! It’s getting so it’s getting harder to eat meat anymore! But if you have to eat this poison, make sure you ask God to bless the food anyway. Who knows? God just might “neutralize” the poisons!

  5. Arsenic in chicken, RBGH in beef, antibiotics in pork, mercury & Fuku poisoning in the fish, GMO veggies & fruits. 😡

    Yup, they’ve poisoned just about everything.
