Arsenic in Chicken

Are you aware that the chicken you buy in a grocery store may have a high concentration of arsenic? Poultry producers use arsenic as an antibiotic because factory farms are not hygienic places. Birds are crammed into cages barely large enough for them to turn around in.

High levels of arsenic in chicken feed will lead to concentration in the meat. Already non-organic chickens were found to contain as high as 222 ppb of arsenic. Each year 1.7 to 2.2 million pounds of roxarsone, an arsenic-based antibiotic, is used on chickens.

Instead of growing good food, factory farms try to turn a profit. They give us chickens that are tainted with arsenic. Chicken manure is used on vegetable gardens and they are contaminated. Later this arsenic finds its way to our rivers. It contaminates the soil and gets into our ecosystem.

What we know is that roxarsone in chicken feed is causing risk to humans of arsenic poisoning. This is a very grave danger to our food supply.

God wants us to be healthy and safe, but we must be careful with what we eat.

Human Body is Temple of Holy Spirit

The body of a Christian is a temple for the Holy Spirit. It is important that we do not defile the body by eating poisons.

 1Cr 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

1Cr 3:17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which [temple] ye are.

 In the Old Testament, God gives us a list of what foods are good to eat. He also tells us how to prepare them.

Certain types of animals such as pigs are considered unclean. Typically, scavenger animals are unclean.

Leviticus 11:1-8"Now the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying to them,
4 'Nevertheless these you shall not eat among those that chew the cud or those that have cloven hooves: the camel, the hare...
7 'and the swine, though it divides the hoof,..
8 'Their flesh you shall not eat, and their carcasses you shall not touch. They [are] unclean to you.

As to how to prepare food, God tells us not to eat neither fat nor blood. 

Leviticus 3:17 It shall be a perpetual statute for your generations throughout all your dwellings, that ye eat neither fat nor blood.
