Recently, I came across the articles below, and found myself speechless.  If the purpose of the FDA is to protect our health, why then, does it take them so long to remove harmful toxins, such as arsenic, from the market? With their failure to respond to obvious findings, they are practically feeding us cancer through the unhealthy foods they deem safe. 

I encourage you to take a moment to read these articles, and form your own opinions, but I can tell you they left me asking many questions. For example, is this the only toxic drug that has been approved and is being used on animals? How long have we been unknowingly consuming arsenic, a cancer-causing agent? Is it just in chicken? What about other meat products? How does the FDA define toxic? How is it possible that this drug changed to a different medical supplier, when it was very well known what the drug was doing?

The FDA Admits That Prior to 2011 Over 70% of U.S. Chickens Contained Cancer-Causing Arsenic

Product Safety Information: 3-Nitro (Roxarsone) and Chicken

This is just one of many examples as to why I encourage you to know what you’re eating, to think twice before purchasing conventional livestock, and to always question your source of authority. Whether they are right or wrong, do your due diligence, especially when it comes to your health and your children’s health.

As always, at our Indianapolis chiropractic clinic, we recommend making friends with a local farmer, and making sure their farming practice is humanitarian, ethical and healthy, before purchasing from them.
