Health, Justice and Sustainability News Tidbits with an Edge!*
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. http://www.organicconsumers.org/foodsafety/arsenic060405.cfm
