The Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy has released a new study revealing arsenic is present in most non-organic chicken products. Testing of 155 samples from supermarket chicken products found 55 percent carried detectable levels arsenic, a highly toxic carcinogen. All 90 fast food chicken products contained arsenic. The toxin levels are due to the industry practice of adding arsenic to chicken feed with the goal of killing parasites and promoting growth. Arsenic is not allowed in organic chicken feed.

That was a damn good play. My high school put it on once. It rocked so many mothers.



OP: HALLELUJAH! Now I have ammo to get my omni BF to at least stop eating FF-Chicken!

i saw an article about this in the meat department at my work a couple weeks ago....kind of sickening really.

whats even more pathetic is that it wont get the majority of people to even stop and think about what they are shoving down their throats......
