Arsenic and You..

In normal day to day talk you don't here much about Arsenic but millions of people eat it everyday without realizing it.
Yes friends you read that right you are consuming Arsenic almost every day for a lot of people.
Do you know why this is?
Because they feed it to our supermarket chicken.

Do you know what Arsenic does?
Long-term exposure to arsenic can cause cancer in the skin, lungs, bladder and kidney. It can also cause other skin changes.
Arsenic may also contribute to other life-threatening illnesses, including heart disease and diabetes, and to a decline in mental functioning.
And large amounts were used to kill people as a poison.

None of the fast-food chains had chicken that was arsenic-free
! And millions of Americans eat fast food EVERYDAY!

So let me ask you.. is it OK to deliberately put this poison into our chicken feed?
I think not.

Its NOT safe and with more and more people eating larger amounts of chicken then even 20 years ago these dated practices need to be removed.

Remember this has been a government-approved additive in poultry feed for decades. They claim its used to kill parasites. I think we need to find another way..

Stop your consumption of arsenic today by choosing chickens labeled organic or antibiotic-free!
