Chicken Meat Contains Cancer-Causing Arsenic
FDA finally revealed the long kept secret that chicken meat contains cancer-causing arsenic, a toxic chemical that it could kill in high doses, according to the Associated Press.
But the problem is where this arsenic actually comes from and what is worse is mixed with chicken feed on purpose and ends up in the chicken meat you eat.
More than 70% of the chicken, sold for human consumption, were given arsenic in order to accelerate their growth and also were given the healthy color of chicken, turkey and hog meat.
About half of the chickens that were tested, contained inorganic arsenic in the lover, the most toxic cancer-causing chemical, FDA founds.
Therefore, the manufacturer of Roxarsone, an ingredient in chicken feet containing arsenic, was asked to discontinue the sales of that feed additive, although he admits that the amount is too small to be dangerous to the people who consume it.
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.”
This product was pulled off the shelves in the US stores, but despite the fact that arsenic increases the risk of cancer, FDA still considers the chicken is safe to eat because the amounts of arsenic contained in the chicken were too small to be dangerous.
According to the University Of South Carolina Department Of Environmental Health Services, arsenic, along with lead and mercury, is extremely dangerous and toxic to the health and produce neurological effect on fetuses and children, but the production industry wants to hide this information from the world.
According experts, arsenic is considered to be 4 times more poisonous than mercury and trivalent Arsenic As+3 are 60 times more toxic than the pentavalent As+5.
The results of the conducted study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association showed that individuals who consume arsenic-tinged rice in high amounts, without any other arsenic exposure, experienced cellular changes linked to cancer development.
According to the latest reports, it was approved the arsenic exposure can cause Bowen disease which is sometimes referred to as “squamous cell carcinoma in situ“, basal cell carcinoma on the skin and even cancers of the internal organs: lungs, kidneys, bladder and liver.
