    Everything is horrifying! icon_sad.gif

    It's clear that turning ourselves towards a vegetarian diet is indeed helpful to both ourselves and to our mother earth.
    Not to mention that the vegetarian food is also polluted nowadays like any animal based foods, but it's much safer and more healthier choice(comparatively); both physically, mentally and ethically.

    This is stupid. Everyone should know by now that there's a big chance that chicken has a lot of bacteria. They should also know that cooking the chicken completely will kill all of this bacteria.

    As for contamination of the tools and things used in the prep of chicken, if you don't know this then get the f#ck out of the kitchen. You certainly don't know enough to cook or handle sharp instruments!

    Seriously, this stuff is NOT new or a secret folks. OMG.

    This is why cage-free, organic-fed, non-antibiotic raised birds are a smart and reasonable choice short of veganism.

    The bacteria part is nothing new. However who the F*** thought it would be a good idea to allow china to self-regulate their own factories. They obviously aren't going to give themselves a degrading mark. Antibiotics are also nothing new but I wasn't aware of the crappy arsenic feed or otc drugs some companies feed them. Hello farmers market.

    This thread reminds me why I tend to over cook chicken, why I would never eat any food from China and last (but not least!) why I love beef! ;-)

    Great post. I started eating only organic chicken years ago. Heavy metal like arsenic, mercury, lead, etc can be found in vegetarian and vegan food as well. 2-4 millions of people in the US have dangerous lead in their body from food grown in fields exposed to oil and gasoline.

    Using a near-infrared sauna eliminate heavy metal in the body, as infrared heat lamps light penetrate 3 inches into the body.

    LOL

    If you think chickens are bad, research as to what they put into bovine for meat and milk production. You will never drink milk again.

    You cannot get a ripped, rock hard physique like that on a daily diet poisoned by high fructose corn syrup that is for sure.

    The Left and I are almost always at odds, but on factory farming we may find some agreement.

    Here in southern Delaware they say that you're never more than 500 feet from a chicken "house."

    One quickly becomes aware of the dark side of the business. They can't hide those trucks stacked high with crates of half-dead chickens, relieving themselves on each other as they are transported, sometimes exposed to windy freezing weather, to "plants" where they are "processed."

    In hot humid weather, the dead birds succumb from being packed together in the insufferable heat, and are thrown on huge piles. The "houses" are kept lit 24 hours a day to encourage the birds to feed around the clock, presumably on a growth-maximizing concoction which includes hormones and antibiotics.

    Live here long enough and you get inside information, e.g., the people who "raise" these chickens refuse to eat meat from them. They raise their own chickens on the side, the old-fashioned way.

    Capitalism produces the greatest wealth, but only informed consumers can vote with their dollars to reward those who produce quality goods and services in an ethical way.

    7 More reasons to:

    -Buy Local chickens.

    -Chickens not raised in cruelty.

    -Chickens fed organically raised food.

    -Cook your chicken thoroughly.

    -Wash your hands after handling raw chicken.

    All the stuff in the report is good info - but it tars all chicken with the same brush, Tyson, Foster Farms, Perdue and other mega-poultry producers do all this for "cheap" chicken. Yes, I don't like paying $6.99/lb for chicken breasts (about 3x - 4x the cost of the jumbo pack of the frozen Tyson jumbo pack of boneless skinless chicken breasts) but - the organically fed, free range chicken (yes, I know it's raised in barns, and isn't as good as pastured) has been found by reputable organizations to be signifcantly lower in e.coli and salmonella - which seem to be part of the whole "chicken" deal.

    I don't see anything surprising or horrifying about this article. All of this stuff has been shared countless times before. It's just a matter of fact for pretty much every meat that we eat. As long as we eat quality meats and cook it thoroughly, we can avoid most of these issues.

    As for Chicken McNuggets, I used to eat those constantly. I stopped when I was 21 when I bit into one, and it was black on the inside. I haven't eaten at McDonalds or eaten a chicken nugget since. That was the single worst food experience of my life.

    If you eat animals of any kind...stop the sanctimonious Bullshit. Go vegan or STFU. BTW, I like meat.

    1. Buy organic chicken. You get what you pay for. If you want cheap, fecal contaminated chicken, keep buying the cheap stuff. You're just funding big corporate meat producers and hurting yourself and depriving ethical and clean farmers of money.
    2. Going vegan is NOT a solution. Where do you think all that soy and grain is grown? Answer: cutting down rain forests in Brazil, killing all the animals and killing our climate.
    3. If you want safe, clean meat, find a local farmer who produces meat properly and spend your money.
