Shocking Revelation: Chicken Meat Causes Cancer - FDA

FDA finally admitted that chickens given the drug are actually positive for inorganic arsenic,according to the Associated Press.
The issue has been swept under the rug for years, but the FDA finally confirmed that chicken sold in markets contains arsenic. Arsenic is a toxic chemical that causes cancer, and it is fatal in high doses. The real problem is the origin of the arsenic, or the way in which it ends up in the chicken meat you eat.

Its presence in chicken meat sold in the supermarkets has long been kept as a secret, but now the FDA finally admitted it.

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.

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

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.
According to to the University of South Carolina, Department of Environmental Health Services, arsenic, just like mercury and lead, has extremely toxic effects on fetuses and children.

As a result of this, Pfizer was asked to stop the production of Roxarsone, a drug which contains toxic arsenic and is added to chicken feed in order to make the meat look fatter and have a nice pink color.
 “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.” reported The Wall Street Journal.
Regardless of the fact that this product is recalled from the stores throughout the US, the FDA still asserts that chicken contains safe amount of arsenic and that it is safe to eat.

Undoubtedly, the production industry does not want to spread the news about arsenic and its toxic effects on human health.
