Poultry industry, like the beef industry, is steeped in evil practices
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor
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.
