The concern has actually been swept under the rug for years, however the FDA finally validated that chicken sold in markets contains arsenic. Arsenic is a hazardous chemical that triggers cancer, and it is fatal in high dosages. The real issue is the origin of the arsenic, or the way in which it winds up in the chicken meat you consume.
FDA finally admitted that chickens given the drug are actually positive for inorganic arsenic, according to the Associated Press.
Its existence in chicken meat offered in the supermarkets has actually long been kept as a trick, today 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 harmful form of this cancerous chemical. Also they found that the Chickens are being injected also with steroids o fatten them for human consumption.
People who consume large amounts of rice which consists of arsenic, experience modification in the cells which leads to cancer development, according to a research study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association.
When consumed, arsenic causes Bowen illness (squamous cell cancer in situ); invasive squamous cell cancer; basal cell cancer on the skin; and in some cases 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 Solutions, arsenic, just like mercury and lead, has very toxic impacts on fetuses and kids.
Additionally, experts declare that arsenic has 4 times more toxic results than mercury. For example, Arsenic As +3 is 60 times as poisonous as the pentavalent As +5.
The most troublesome concern in all this is in fact the origin of the arsenic contributed to the chicken. Namely, arsenic is deliberately blended with the chicken food.
According to IATP’s report in 2006, called Playing Chicken, more than 70% chickens are fed with arsenic in order to promote faster development on less food, and it also provides healthy color of chicken, turkey and hog meat.
As a result of this, Pfizer was asked to stop the production of Roxarsone, a drug which consists of hazardous arsenic and is contributed to chicken feed in order to make the meat look fatter and have a nice pink color.
“The firm said it recently carried out a study of 100 broiler chickens that found inorganic arsenic at higher levels in the livers of chickens alleviated with 3-Nitro compared with unattended chickens … Pfizer stated that sale of 3-Nitro would be stopped by early July in order to allow animal producers to shift to other treatments.”– reported The Wall Street Journal.
Regardless of the fact that this product is recalled from the shops throughout the US, the FDA still asserts that chicken includes safe amount of arsenic and that it is safe to consume.
Undoubtedly, the production industry does not want to spread out the news about arsenic and its hazardous impacts on human health.
