Poultry industry

Poultry industry, like the beef industry, is steeped in evil practices

This is fascinating news for several reasons, not the least of which is the fact that chicken litter is being fed to cattle in the U.S. (see the mad cow disease articles for more) and, therefore, cows are ingesting highly toxic arsenic that's contained in the chicken litter. Another concern is that chicken litter, laced with arsenic, is being used as crop fertilizer. Inevitably, arsenic finds its way into the rivers, stream and even the crops that are later consumed by humans. In fact, on the face of it, the practice of feeding chickens even trace amounts of arsenic seems bizarre.

But don't put it past meat growers to use any chemical necessary to generate more profits. We've already seen how the beef industry feeds diseased, dead cow parts, including spinal cord tissue, to chickens, and then takes that chicken litter and feeds it back to cows. Is it any surprise that the poultry industry is any less inhumane in their operations? To them, it's just a factory after all. Chickens are kept in tiny cages for the duration of their miserable lives. Their beaks are cut off so they can't injure other chickens when they go mad from the conditions under which they are forced to live. And their bodies are pumped full of chemicals to make sure they stay alive just long enough to make it to the slaughterhouse. It's a cruel industry, and every time you eat chicken at a restaurant or buy chicken at the grocery store, you support it.

The solution is to buy only free range chicken, organically farmed by responsible families who allow their chickens to run free and eat bugs and weeds, just like chickens are supposed to do.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
