According to the Associated Press, the FDA was able finally to prove that the chickens who are being given the drug, the examinations held over them are actually positive for inorganic arsenic.
This problem was in a sort of why ignored for a long time, however the FDA decided that this is the right time to say once and for all that the chicken meat which is found in the stores in the USA is consisted of arsenic, this represent an extreme toxic chemical which created cancer, plus is life threating when used in high doses. However, the real story it originates from where exactly it appears from: It’s added to the chicken feed with intention! A long time ago more specifically in 2006, the IATP’s report Playing Chicken: Avoiding Arsenic inside the meat you eat, it was shown that more than 70 percent of all U.S. chickens who are kept in order to be used as meat are filled with arsenic. The reason for including the arsenic inside the meat is for quicker gaining of weight on less feed, as well as the meat from the turkeys, hogs and chickens to have their normal healthy color.
The Food and Drug Administration or known as the FDA was able to discover that almost half of all chickens who were examined have absorbed inorganic arsenic, the most toxic and dangerous form was found inside their liver. According to those information, the agency asked Pfizer to stop with the process of production and creation of Roxarsone, this has become part of them because it is an arsenic-containing drug which has been placed in feeding the fatten chickens plus it makes the meat to look with bright pink hue.
