FDA Finally Admits Chicken Meat Contains Cancer-Causing Arsenic

After 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. In what pseudoscience world can arsenic be scientifically linked to the mysterious disease known as cancer? To link arsenic to what is known loosely as “cancer” would have to suggest that someone knows what “cancer” is. I think most can agree that there is likely a pathogen that is “cancer” so to suggest arsenic causes cancer seems a little misleading. Saying arsenic hinders the immune system allowing pathogens to have free reign is probably more scientifically accurate. Giving signs and symptoms caused by pathogens a name like “cancer” is as misleading as it gets. I sure would like to see people gain in wisdom instead of secondhand hearsay science propaganda. Think of the discussion and health improvements if we all stopped buying into the misinformation. Regards.

    • Do you honestly say that you don’t know what cancer is?

      • Fable, I can honestly say my cousin, one of the leading Oncologist in the U.S doesn’t know what cancer is. No cancer doctor does. That’s the beauty of an industry creating a disease based on nothing but pure speculation.

        Explanations for what “cancer” is come and go and change like the wind. That is what makes curing cancer so easy to avoid. No one knows what cancer is because no one but approved commercial puppets have access to the deceased to see just exactly what it was that killed their loved one.

        Jeff talked about using arsenic to treat cancer, well everything in the world as been used to attempt to TREAT cancer but there is not one institution out there attempting to cure what is known as cancer. Urine therapy, arsenic, what’s the difference when people are still dying as such a grotesque rate. And who’s to say those successfully “TREATED” for cancer and have survived would not have fared much better had they not undergone the alleged “cancer” treatment. There is no way to know what would have happened after the treatments are used. It can be said that the diagnoses of “cancer” is far more deadly that what ever it is that is causing the signs and symptoms that provoked the “cancer” diagnoses. Stress and fear are far more deadly than any supposed “cancer” because stress and fear can shut down a person immunity quicker than any pathogen. Stress and fear can lead to shock and death in minutes so do not take it lightly.

        No medical data will stand up in court as anything more than speculation. That’s just the way it is, but the problem today is consumers do not every question the data or even read it appropriately to know it is all hypothesis and speculation. “Believed to be” is one of the most common phrases in the medical industry. I use to believe in Santa Clause but now I demand more tangible evidence and more importantly truth and I can tell you, when the truth is part of healing or medicine cures will result. That’s a good aid to knowing if you are being told the truth, if you can be cured or healed you are getting the truth, if you are being treated instead of cured you are being misinformed. I don’t expect a lot of people to agree with me but if you think about it you will see it is only common sense.

          I label your responses rational irrationalization…when you get Cancer…you will figure out what it is in relation to your body and immune system…until then, continue to banter with whomever it is you talk in circles with and hope that you find the common sense in all of this nonsense.

          • Yes you missed bobby90247. When someone comes to someone claiming they have found a way to do something, it is more or less based on theories. The phrase is a principal which is used to detect incorrect equations and correct them with correct corrections.

            Your logic opens up the door to problems. “If they say this is how it works, it then must work that way.” Incorrect. Just the ability to publish you opinion does not make it work that way. You need equations to back it all up. If you don’t have any equations to back it up, your statement is false.

            Do not just believe when someone says they have invented something that works this way or that way. Whenever you truly show me how the things you have invented work, you don’t have to tell me why it does because I have the equation and I can calculate it myself, if it is based on logic.

            There are many who believe they work, but unless we test them, we have no way to understand how they work especially the laws and many types of behavior. We may have a slight clue of knowing how they work, but to know and not to understand what you know is the same as not to know. This is how I unmask e.g. a lying person.

            He was also a human inventing a very critical principal which ables us to find and improve our systems. What could be more topical than improvement of systems of today? I won’t be suggestive and blame people by their titles. I don’t care who you are or what you have done. What I really care about is how you behave. By having me study your behavior, I will be able to tell you where your behavior leads you. To use Pareto’s principal in this case I will also be able to detect faster the sources of all kinds of problems. I don’t know where you looked up the principal, but in Finnish Wikipedia pages, I found enough to verify its usefulness. I have already put it in usage and found it to be as it states. A principal to improve systems. One of the best principals I have ever found.

            One more thing though. As a principal, it means not an exact value. It is still breathing and by that I mean it has no fixed values even though there is the 80-20 rule. However it may not be exactly 80-20, but instead 81,7-18,3 or similar.

            • Bobby and Fable, we live in a world where how things work is more important than things that work. How the body can be immune to cancer is more impressive than the SOLID FACT that the body can be immune to cancer.

              Mainstream failing science has set the standards as to what can be considered valid and true when nothing is mainstream is valid and true. Credentials are more important than results. Furthermore, all science is commercial unless you are like me, a one person private science institution, naturally without any funding.

              All the data in the medical world today that is considered to be valid because of proper scientific validation and research ENDS at a dead end, literally. What does common sense tell you about a type of science that fails and fails and fails again and again? It tells you that mainstream commercial science isn’t science at all, it is pseudoscience used to further the industry of today’s medicine and that includes natural alternative medicine.

          • I’m with you, Maryann! “…Show me how your system works and I tell you why it does…” Did I miss something here? If, I can show you how my system works, doesn’t that mean I already know “why?” hmmm…??? I think so, otherwise, how would I have come up with a “working system?”

            Fable, I am not in the least bit familiar with “Pareto’s Principle”…whatsoever! Therefore, I looked-it up! Pareto was an “economist!” AND, just as I suspected, his “principle” can be used to “improve,” a working system. In doing so, you just “might” discover another system. BUT, that’s about it!

            Take Care and God Bless!!!

          • You may label whatever you want. Feel free to do so. :)

            I have to ask though. Can you show me that I haven’t got a cancer myself? Perhaps someone I know has it. What level of a cancer is in question and what type?

            Me and you do figure out what cancer is in relation to the environment, but first we need to define what level of environment we talk about. What I actually said is in all its simplicity, the behavior that can be witnessed in all levels of cancer in relation to its level of environment. Thus I verify this portion what you just said.

            I follow this simple principal.

            “Show me how your system works and I tell you why it does.”

            This means that whenever you show me how something you have discovered works, the mechanics, from beginning to end, I will be able to tell you why it really does so. If I come to a conclusion that the result is not exactly why it does work, it means that in your equation, you have one or more components in incorrect arrangement, one or more fundamentals are missing or there are too many trivials in the pattern. To be able to locate and correct your equation I find Pareto’s Principal very helpful. The correct correction is within the top 20 % reported problems made by the incorrect equation as a result. Also the reversive way to look up your equation is that unless it is within the top 20 %, it is within the bottom 80 %. Either way you will be able to correct your equation to have it work the way you wanted it to work in the first place.

        • To know what cancer is, you have to examine its behavior in accordance to the environment. Everything behaves in its own way within the environment, the greater holon in which it resides as a lesser holon in itself.

          Cancer is just like any other holon found in existence. It is an entity which strives to thrive, to exist as it believes as it is, as it is programmed. Single or group, its behavior is what tells us all we need and when we understand the pattern how it behaves, not just know about its existence, we are able to trace it back into its state of birth to the state of death, unstability. From state of assembly to state of disassembly. From state of activation to state of deactivation. It is then how we discover how it becomes assembled, activated by its respective components when the key component or components are placed in the right place within the equation. This is what triggers the cancer behavior.

          What I have come to understand is that cancer is not the name of a certain type of entity. It is behavior of an entity in existence, activated response to the equation, the environment, a result we see in everything when the correct equation is assembled. It will sooner or later devour its greater holonic entity in which the lesser holonic entity resides unless it does evolve to understand its behavior is more or less going to get itself devoured as a result. Solution is to deactivate the pattern, the equation from reproduction of this behavior element or teach it to behave in accordance of the boundary-conditions of the greater holonic entity which keeps the newly assembled entity to exist, but with more or less harmless/healthier behavior.

          Cancer is the behavior of a lesser holonic entity in accordance to a greater holonic entity it resides in. Cure in this sense has no meaning. There is no cure of anykind. You can only backtrack the path of evolution and continue onward. You can only undo and redo something. You can only eat and be eaten, kill and be killed. To exist sooner or later and fade sooner or later. Trial and error in a macroscopic and microscopic scale of progressive events toward the unique, existential goal of no special purpose than to mearly exist and eagerly discover, to do something.

          Whenever you cannot do something or you do something you don’t want to do, cancer behavior is triggered. You will become a devourer of the greater entity. One by one, you will affect the same pattern of behavior around you and it will spread in accordance to the boundary-conditions of the environment just like any other type of behavior and ultimately it makes the greater entity to collapse as it makes you at the same time just a mere memory. Solution to deactivate this kind of behavior is to let an entity do what it has decided it needs to do and not do something it does not want to do. Solution is to tame it with a purpose so it does not become to behave in a hazardous way toward the greater holonic entity, the environment.

          Question: Does this sound familiar to you?
          Question: How did this help you?
          Question: Have you witnessed this kind of behavior?
          Question: Where have you witnessed this?
          Question: Are you ready to tame the target entity?
          Question: or do you wait for someone else to do it?

          Let us have a conversation about this.

          • “People with solid peace of mind are less likely to struggle with what is known as cancer”. I verify this, but can you define what you mean by solid peace of mind so I can verify the portions of it if it is not something which I can verfity as a holon?

            For the sake of argument, let us say that I verify the holon of it. This solid peace of mind, a state of mind, is also the ability to maintain “non-cancerous” behavior in a [insert type of environment here] layout, but when (not if, when) a component or components are added to the mix, peaceful state becomes the playground of such behavior that introduces problems e.g. inhaling smoke, hitting an individual, gradually longer awakeness with less and less time asleep, provoking violent rallies and so on.

            Can you define to me what a pathogen is, how it behaves to form a tumor? I prefer you to assemble your answer by your own words if you are able, but a source-link is good too.

            Tell me more about this fungus theory.

            Society is over worked, under paid and all this is due to cancerous behavior in a lower form of the greater holon e.g. greater holon (government) tries to demand what you (lesser holon) need to do while you clearly cannot do what is demanded due the government itself. Result is a situation where one of the solutions (reactions) include cancerous behavior which in this sense would mean you to try overcome the governmental rules and restrictions by force and violence. You become a cancer within the government which in itself is a fungus that created the lower level problem inside itself to begin with.

          • Fable, let me sum that comment up in once sentence for the laymen here.

            PEOPLE WITH SOLID PEACE OF MIND ARE LESS LIKELY TO STRUGGLE WITH WHAT IS KNOWN AS CANCER.

            This is because the immune system is designed to keep us all immune to what is known as cancer and cancer is a pathogen, not the body attacking itself. The tumors are caused by pathogens and as long as we continue to pretend or fabricate stories and research that hypothesizes that they are messed up human cells because of human frailness the industry of cancer will continue to thrive.

            There is a lot of speculation that tumors are nothing more than fungal infected tissue and whether it is true or not, the theory is much more sound than any other theory. We live in a world of carbs and sugars which stimulate and feed fungus.so to take fungus lightly and to shrug it off would naturally be life threatening.

            Nothing is more ignored in world of medicine than fungus and nothing is more environmentally destructive as fungus. Fungus can wipe out an entire crop in days or an orchard.

            As for adjusting human behavior in order to provide more peace of mind and immunity, well it won’t happen because those who govern us are seeing to your own personal destruction. Society is over worked, under paid and trampled on by those in power and all society can do about it is “vote and hope.”

      • It’s like this, unless the source is able to cure something, anything, I cannot in in good judgment or conscience consider it reliable. The people or institutions who can heal anyone with cancer are the ones to be taken seriously. Anyone else in my opinion, especially the EPA is simply marketing the industry of our failing medicine for higher profit.

        Arsenic is a poison and in relation to cancer it is no different than any other poison. Arsenic is believed to be present in most of America’s well water. But that is all moot until you know exactly what “cancer” is, not the pseudoscience version created my mainstream commercial science accepted as gospel though it is all pure speculation.

        Anyway, lots of people are immune to what is called cancer but of course most will die of cancer unless they get hit by a bus or have an heart attack first. The million dollar question is “why do some people not get cancer” of course the answer is obvious but no one goes there. People can be immune to the disease known as “cancer” and everyone in the world should be trying to reach that kind of immunity then arsenic is moot.

        • Cancer Listeni/ˈkænsər/, known medically as a malignant neoplasm, is a broad group of diseases involving unregulated cell growth. In cancer, cells divide and grow uncontrollably, forming malignant tumors, and invade nearby parts of the body. The cancer may also spread to more distant parts of the body through the lymphatic system or bloodstream. Not all tumors are cancerous; benign tumors do not invade neighboring tissues and do not spread throughout the body. There are over 200 different known cancers that afflict humans.[1]”

          As in, when your cells reproduce they create a bad copy of themselves that for whatever reason (that is the mysterious part) are not killed off by the surrounding cells as would typically happen, but continue to reproduce and split. This is grade 11 biology Dave.

          • @ Maintainperspective,
            I’m sorry and I mean no disrespect to you but I am going to require an expert’s explanation, oh wait, there is no such thing as an expert when it comes to “cancer” BECAUSE if there was an expert THAT expert would be CONSISTENTLY curing people of cancer not treating people for “cancer”.

            The ALL-CAPS are not me yelling at you MP, it just my way to help people maintain perspective. The explanation you gave is JUST one of many explanations for what is “cancer” over the years and I will admit one of the older explanations. It still hangs in there because NO ONE has proven it wrong. That’s right, the explanation you posted is 100% hypothesis meaning NO ONE knows what “cancer” is, at least no one who is telling.

            Let’s continue to maintain perspective, my cousin the great and noble David Euhus,Oncologist extraordinaire and professor of UT South Western in Texas is considered one of the leading experts on “cancer”, but only because he is mistakenly perceived to be an expert not because he can cure people of “cancer” an a true expert would. It’s common sense, if you can’t fix or cure something CONSISTENTLY then you are not allowed to be considered an EXPERT. SHAME on anyone who believes the MP explanation above written by failures.

            So the supposed, believed to be, explanation you posted above is nothing more than the most popular belief and it remains ONLY a belief because I am not allowed to challenge it. There is no actual proof or evidence to support the explanation you gave, just speculation.

            And yes, GRADE 11 biology is WRONG. If you cannot cure what is known as “cancer” with complete consistency you cannot be considered and expert and any information published by any complete failure claiming to be an expert is naturally a fraud. Your explanation is a fraud hence the complete lack of effectiveness today in curing cancer.

            SO, the truth is NO ONE KNOWS WHAT CANCER IS. I thank everyone for their patience and suffering so we can all finally ascertain the truth. It’s unfortunate but I’m the closest thing to an expert when it comes to the disease known as “cancer” simply because I know that the data posted by maintainperspective is PURE hypothesis published by complete failures.
