                      Arsenic In Poultry Meat And Eggs
     Another Cancer Connection And How To Remove Arsenic From The Body

===========================================================================

Many laboratory tests have proved that arsenic causes cancer even at
low levels currently found in our environment. Also, evidence suggests
that arsenic contributes to other diseases, such as diabetes, heart, and
decline of mental function. Humans are exposed to arsenic directly from
its natural occurrence in the earth's crust but arsenic is mined and then
used commercially. Drinking water, rice, and playground equipment are a
few of the daily exposures to cancer-causing arsenic. The Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) finally lowered its long-outdated arsenic
drinking-water standard by five-fold in 2001.  Arsenic contaminates many
of your favorite foods, including rice and chicken, intentionally. In
this article, we focus on chicken meat and eggs. For many decades,
chicken farmers have been feeding chickens arsenic to hasten and increase
growth and conceal symptoms of disease at youthful stages of chicken
development. Of the 8.7 billion American broiler chickens produced each
year, at least 70 percent have been fed arsenic. Some of that arsenic
remains in chicken meat; the following chart shows how much by brand
and cut.

Removing bodily storages of arsenic may be accomplished by eating
combinations of raw foods, such as 1/3 cup tomato, 2 tablespoons
no-salt-added raw cheese and 5-7 leaves of cilantro, or 2-3 ounces raw
coconut cream, 1/2 tablespoon unsalted raw butter, 1 tablespoon raw
cream (dairy cream) and 1/2-3/4 cup of organically-grown dark berries
(such as blackberries, blue berries and boysenberries).

Simply choosing a poultry that is not fed arsenic does not resolve every
toxin-issue regarding poultry. See Soy Toxicity In Poultry Meat And Eggs.
