It is appalling, but the FDA made this confession at long last: Chicken meat sold in the US does contain arsenic, a cancer-causing agent which is let halin high dosages.And the fact that the poisonous chemical is added to the chicken feed deliberately is even more appalling!
Things went from bad to worse especially after the FDA had carried out their own research. It showed that the arsenic added to the chicken fodder actually ends up in the chicken meat,from where it ends up in humans’ stomachs!It also made it clear that in the last half a century the Americans have been consuming arsenic coming from the “typical” chicken stuff!
It wasn’t until this groundbreaking study that the FDA and the US poultry industry realized the gravity of the problem. Then they came up with this make-believe pretext: “The arsenic is excreted in the chicken feces.” But they knew only too well that there wasn’t any scientific ground for making such a statement!
However, the evidence against the above claim got so conclusive that the manufacturer of the chicken feed product called Roxarsone decided to remove the product from the shelves. And you all know who is behind this chicken feed, “stabilized” with arsenic, don’t you? It’s Pfizer,alas.The same producer of vaccines containing chemical adjuvants that are injected into children!
Officially, Alpharma LLC,the company making the Roxarsone chicken feed, is a subsidiary of Pfizer.The FDA has asked Pfizer to stop manufacturing the arsenic-containing drug after it was found in the livers of nearly half of all chicken tested.
Discontent is the first necessity of progress, so Alpharmaagreed to pull this harmful chemical off the shelves in the US too. But they say they won’t subsequently remove it from feed products in other countries unless forced by regulators to do so. Associated press’ follow upis given bellow:
“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.”
Arsenic? Help yourself to some more!
As bad habits die hard, the FDA does not cancel its consumer campaign, claiming that arsenic in chickens is at such a low level that it’s still safe to eat! How safe is it to intake arsenic when it increases the risk of cancer? Not safe at all, most of us would unanimously agree.
Yet, another institution lended support to the FDA claim – The National Chicken Council. They responded to the news that Roxarsone would be withdrawn from feed stores, restating that “chicken is safe to eat”.It isn’t a big issue for them either although they admitted that arsenic was used in many flocks grown and sold as chicken meat throughout the US.
The FDA recently paid an armed “visit” to an elderberry juice manufacturer, accusing it of the “crime” of selling “unapproved drugs”.When asked which drugs those would be, they said:“The elderberry juice.”So, the elderberry juice overnight becomes a “drug” if you tell people it can help support good health!I would say it is mind-blowing to tells hoppers it’s safe to eat the cancer-causing arsenic, but it’s dangerous to drink elderberry juice!
That is exactly what the FDA wants us to take for granted!
This was not an isolated case. On the contrary: The FDA has also gone after dozens of other companies for selling natural and nutritional products that enhance and support health. At the moment, it’s waging a war on raw milk because it is dangerous for consumers! So, now we have a food and drug regulatory agency that says it’s all right to eat arsenic, but it is not safe to drink elderberry juice or raw milk!
What is the underlying message of these FDA moves? It’s this one: Help yourself to some more poison, but don’t consume any healing foods.
Isn’t the FDA killing off Americans’ one good meal at a time at the expense of protecting the profits of certain companies?
All being said, chicken devourers may find useful these words of advice:
- If the chicken meat is bright pink in color, like in an unnatural way, avoid it at all costs.
- Make sure that the fat content on the chicken is white to deep yellow, not gray or pasty.
- Check the date on the package.
- And finally, aim for “Certified Organic” meat products. It’s probably the safest choice for you and your family.
