FDA Finally Admits Chicken Meat Contains Cancer-Causing Arsenic

Chickens raised for slaughterAfter years of sweeping the issue under the rug and hoping no one would notice, the FDA has now finally admitted that chicken meat sold in the USA contains arsenic, a cancer-causing toxic chemical that’s fatal in high doses. But the real story is where this arsenic comes from: It’s added to the chicken feed purposely!

Even worse, the FDA says its own research shows that the arsenic added to the chicken feed ends up in the chicken meat where it is consumed by humans. So for the last sixty years, American consumers who eat conventional chicken have been consuming arsenic, a known cancer-causing chemical.

Until this new study, both the poultry industry and the FDA denied that arsenic fed to chickens ended up in their meat. The fairy-tale excuse story we’ve all been fed for sixty years is that “the arsenic is excreted in the chicken feces.” There’s no scientific basis for making such a claim, it’s simply what the poultry industry wanted everybody to believe.

Now the evidence is so undeniable that the manufacturer of the chicken feed product known as Roxarsone has decided to pull the product off the shelves. Interestingly enough, the manufacturer that has been putting arsenic in the chicken feed for all these years is Pfizer — the very same company that makes vaccines containing chemical adjuvants that are injected into children.

Technically, the company making the Roxarsone chicken feed is a subsidiary of Pfizer, called Alpharma LLC. Even though Alpharma now has agreed to pull this toxic feed chemical off the shelves in the United States, it says it won’t necessarily remove it from feed products in other countries unless it is forced by regulators to do so. As reported by AP:

“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.”

But even as its arsenic-containing product is pulled off the shelves, the FDA continues its campaign of denial, claiming arsenic in chickens is at such a low level that it’s still safe to eat. This is even as the FDA says arsenic is a carcinogen, meaning it increases the risk of cancer.

The National Chicken Council agrees with the FDA. In a statement issued in response to the news that Roxarsone would be pulled from feed store shelves, it stated, “Chicken is safe to eat” even while admitting arsenic was used in many flocks grown and sold as chicken meat in the United States.

What’s astonishing about all this is that the FDA tells consumers it’s safe to eat cancer-causing arsenic but it’s dangerous to drink elderberry juice! The FDA recently conducted an armed raid in an elderberry juice manufacturer, accusing them of the “crime” of selling “unapproved drugs.” Which drugs would those be? The elderberry juice, explains the FDA. You see, the elderberry juice suddenly becomes a “drug” if you tell people how it can help support good health.
The FDA has also gone after dozens of other companies for selling natural herbal products or nutritional products that enhance and support health. The FDA is also waging a war on raw milk which it says is dangerous. Currently in America, thee is a food and drug regulatory agency that says it’s okay to eat arsenic, but dangerous to drink elderberry juice or raw milk.

  1. DOminic

    I have come to a human conclusion that anything u buy is not really trustworthy,therefore we shoud be all gentlemen farmers & grow our own food.Carnivores eat yur heart out,Im going to try to convince my family to become REAL VEGETARIANS NO GMO PRODUCE

    • DOminic, being a vegetarian is interesting notion, it means being an Herbivore instead of an Omnivore. What herbivore do you compare you mental capabilities too?

      True vegetarians have pretty much ONLY fight or flight mode, no capacity to formulate and process data. Basically vegetarians are food so all they have is fight or flight? Maybe carnivores and omnivores require certain proteins not found in vegetation? I don’t know. I just know that herbivores are incapable of real intellect where omnivores are the top of the charts in intellect. Hmmm?

      • That is completely false and has no basis whatsoever. Being a vegetarian has no impact on your health. You are able to get all nutrients you would need, including all required proteins and amino acids, through non-animal food. Eating a completely meat-free diet can be healthier than one with meat. It can help those with certain disorders.

        What you have stated is extremely offensive. Some of the brightest minds in the world were/are vegetarians. Einstein, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, Steve Jobs… All were vegetarians for part of or most of their life.

        Do a little research in to what you post before you assert it as fact.

        I’m not a vegetarian. I love meat dearly. I just cringe when people fail to do research before claiming things.

        • Lloyd, you take offense way too easily. You got emotion which lead you to be irrational.

          You made statements about vegetarian effects on health as if I said being a vegetarian is bad for one’s health. I did not say that. I said we have no way of knowing if it is bad or good. You believe you can get all the nutrients and proteins one needs but there is no science or evidence to even suggest that because EVERYONE is still sick and diseased no matter what they eat. If you could say vegetarian diets lead to full and complete immunity to disease and it actually did then we could say that you can get everything you need from a vegetarian diet. NO I AM not saying people who eat meat are healthier than vegetarians, I’m saying commercial modern science which is what you base your OPINIONS on fail to offer preventions and cures so today’s science has no credibly of validity and as such one cannot know what is more healthier.

          My observations are based on indisputable fact whether you choose to agree or not. Those brilliant men you mentioned are brilliant because they are OMNIVORES not herbivores. They may have chosen to be vegetarians at one time or another but they are capable of impressive thought processes because they are omnivores. Why that offends you I do not know. Herbivores, which we are not, only have fight or flight capabilities with some rare exception that are not that impressive but exceptions. Hit an elephant with a stick often enough they will learn to raise their leg.

          So you “CRINGE” away, but if you want real wisdom you will read my comments again and be grateful for the wisdom I shared because it is indisputable far better than belief. You got ugly with me because you missed the point entirely. Humans are omnivores because like yourself you eat both meat and vegetation and here you are still alive and kicking. Being a vegetarian is a choice and there is NO science capable of arguing that eating meat or being a vegetarian is better than the other because today’s science is a complete UTTER failure when it comes to improving health in humans and pets. Only livestock gets to enjoy the benefit of real quality science and health care because there is NO MONEY in sick livestock.

          I have no use for your research unless it provides a solid cure or constant prevention anything else is just pure opinion and speculation being boasted about through highly credentialed frauds and failures. If you want to do some real research click on my name and see what wisdom really is.

    I’ve researched this quite extensively, as years ago I moved into a small town with a cancer cluster, with the majority of the victims being school-aged children . A new neighbor (and mother of one of the teenagers with testicular cancer) told me that after citizens had independent testing done, they found arsenic in the AIR filters in the school and nearby homes. Their research pointed to the field next to the school, which for years had been used as a animal waste ‘landfill’… basically a place where chicken farmers would pay to dump their excess litter. I then did my own research, and found websites of companies openly selling arsenic-laced feed, explaining that the feed was designed to kill parasites and to pass straight through the chicken and into the litter, without affecting the meat or eggs. The problem in our town was that the litter was actually getting picked up by the wind and circulating into the school and nearby homes.

    A lawsuit brought little results. The chicken industry is deeply ingrained in this area, and nobody wanted to hear the truth. I moved shortly after learning all of this.

  3. annie

    I would like to know why they put arsenic in the chicken’s food.

  4. I wonder how much of that arsenic gets to humans and how hazardous it is when it gets to humans at that amount. My real concern is someone doing the math and finding that the amount that actually gets to humans isn’t hazardous, thus making people like you and me who pass around such information in an effort to get others to stop eating meat look like half truth telling scaremongers.

    • Arsenic in chicken is the least of society’s worries. Thank God we have lymphatic systems that can and will remove any arsenic we ingest provided we do not use antiperspirants and deodorants and drink adequate water.

      Ignorance of the human capacity for being healthy and immune is the cause for suffering today, not foods, toxins, GMO or carcinogens. The ignorance stems from our loyalty to commercial science which isn’t science at all, just popular belief, and if you don’t like one popular belief “THEY” will create one that is more attractive but nothing more than belief none the less.

      Humans are indeed omnivores. If we were herbivores we would have herbivore like mental capacity, limited to fight or flight. In other words we would be as limited as a chicken when it comes to our mental faculties. All ADVANCED life species are omnivores,, us being the MOST advanced.

      You are designed to eat meat which is why you can do more than flight or fight modes.

      • MikeC

        It’s absurd to reduce whether we should or can eat meat down to the fight or flight mentality of other species. We are an evolved species and the fact that we can adapt to reduce meat intake to almost nothing is the strength of our adaptive abilities. I know vegans who have eaten that way for 17 years, never getting sick, strong and fit, with a clear mental drive and motivation. They clearly have had zero negative effects for not eating meat. These people aren’t exceptions; there are multitudes of professional athletes and even whole cultures who are vegan/vegetarian.

        Meat-eaters have to stop justifying their desire to eat meat by putting down the validity of veganism and just acknowledge they are too weak to do the right thing. And by “the right thing” I don’t necessarily mean going vegan, but greatly reducing meat intake so that cruel factory farming practices are minimised, the need for chemicals in meat is reduced and our world doesn’t become an environmental ruin due to excessive agriculture so that meat-consumption is actually a healthy part of life. All these health and cruelty problems have arisen since people have deemed it OK to have animal products for nearly every meal of their day.

        • I see you point MikeC, but you do not adapt therefore you do not have the capacity to judge whether man is or man isn’t a omnivore or herbivore.

          It’s abundantly clear that omnivores are more mentally adept to greater thought processes and YOU WILL NOT DISPUTE THAT because no one will tolerate that nonsense. However, when it comes to adapting, NOTHING struggles more than the human species. I wonder why? You cannot say it is because we eat meat, no, it would be more reasonable to suggest humans struggle because they eat too much vegetation because everyone eats carbs and sugars.

          Now you are sitting there “BELIEVING” you are adept and adapting but you aren’t you are only adept to BELIEVING you are and you can believe up any illusion you choose to conjure up about yourself. The fact is, you are not adapting MikeC, you are devolving just like every other human who is riddled with disease. Maybe you are not showing signs of disease in your current weakened state but believe you, you will. I suspect you already have diseases you are fully aware of, maybe just allergies or lactose intolerant hence the vegan calamity you BELIEVE is for you.

          Once again, if man were adapting man too would be immune to disease for the most part like all the wild animals are (within reason).

          So Mike, we know herbivores in the wild kingdoms are the dumbest of all animals and we know that according to you and commercial science that man cannot adapt to survive little itty bitty pathogens the way almost all other animals can so MikeC tell us again how man is supposed to be an herbivore and how we supposedly adapt even though we are devolving to be the most fragile weal animal on the planet.

          MikeC, I am the only human you have ever visited with who is immune to all disease so I do know a little about adapting and evolving. Unless you are immune to all disease we may have to work on you credibility. I can help you adapt if you like.
