Carcinogenic arsenic is found in our food
Have you ever wondered why so many people get cancer nowadays? Read on!
FDA study detected inorganic arsenic, a known carcinogen, at higher levels in chickens treated with the drug 3-Nitro® (Roxarsone) than in untreated chickens. This drug is also approved by FDA for weight gain (wonder if it is also making people fatter?). Pfizer announced that it would withdraw Roxarsone starting next month (June 2011). The first approval for Roxarsone was in 1944. As of today, there are other animal drugs approved by FDA with arsenic in them still in active use. (From: FDA)
