According to the last news, the FDA confirmed the presence of arsenic, which is a cancer – causing agent, in the chicken meat, which was sold in the United States. It seems that this poisonous chemical was included in the chicken feed.
There was a research that FDA conducted, in which was found that the arsenic that was added to the chicken fodder, in fact ends up in the meat of the chicken, and as we consume chicken, it also enters is our body.
Another discovery was that we have been also consuming the arsenic, from some typical chicken products, for over five decades.
This claim was not proven scientifically, but they eventually have explained that:
“The arsenic is excreted in the chicken feces.”
Yet, we cannot deny now the evidence provided by research, which made the Roxarsone, a manufacturer of the chicken feed product, to pull the products from the shelves.
Also, the company named Pfizer, is behind the practice of using arsenic to stabilize the chicken feed, and it is also the same company that uses chemical adjuvants in vaccines used in children.
Apparently, the company that produces Roxarsone chicken feed is a subsidiary of Pfizer, called Alpharma LLC. This made the FDA to demand the Pfizer, to stop manufacturing the arsenic-containing drug.
Even though that Alpharma had finally agreed to remove the toxic feed from the shelves in the USA, Pfizer still claims that it will not be necessary to remove it from the feed products in some other countries, unless they are forced to do it by some regulators. According to the Associated press:
“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.”
Even though the FDA has continued claiming that the arsenic used in chicken is at extremely reduced levels, and that is completely safe to consume chicken meat, every reasonable person should be aware that the consumption of a chemical that raises the risk of cancer, is not something that is health and safe.
But, FDA was also supported by the National Chicken Council, which responded that as Roxarsone would be withdrawn from feed stores, “chicken is safe to eat”. They both agree that the arsenic is not such a big problem, and that it has been used in many flocks grown and sold as chicken meat in the United States.
Furthermore, the FDA has recently visited an elderberry juice manufacturer and accused it for “crime” of selling “unapproved drugs”. When they were asked of which drugs those would be, they had a very simple response: “The elderberry juice.” So, the elderberry juice is a “drug” if you inform people that it can help in improving their health.
FDA has also accused some other companies for selling natural and nutritional products, that support our healthy, including the raw milk, so this was not the only case.
Let us explain you some thing: The FDA approves the use of arsenic, but looks on the use of raw milk and elderberry juice as something very dangerous. So, it is very clear that FDA protects the profits of some big companies, and it does not support the use of natural products and remedies, and their benefits for our health.
So, the next time you decide to eat chicken meat, make sure you keep the following tips in mind:
– First, check the date on the package;
– The fat content of the chicken should have white do deep yellow color, and not pasty or gray;
– If the chicken is unnaturally bright pink in color, you should for sure avoid it;
– In order to be sure that your family will consume safe and healthy products, always choose “Certified Organic” meat products.
