Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Arsenic in chickens: the FDA takes on poisonous poultry
The Atlantic - 6/13/2011.
By Marion Nestle – For years, public health advocates have fretted about the use of arsenic-containing drugs to kill intestinal parasites and promote growth in chickens. One such drug is roxarsone, made by Pfizer. Its arsenic is the organic (carbon-containing) form, which is less toxic than the inorganic form. But, as The New York Times explained, evidence has been accumulating that the organic form can change into the more toxic, inorganic form, a known carcinogen.
